My name is Sabri Faruk, I’m 24 years young, and I’m on the road to represent Team Canada in the 2020 Olympics and eventually fight professionally to become World Champion. Having recently won Gold at the Canadian Boxing Nationals in the Senior Elite category representing Team BC and Maple Ridge Amateur Boxing Club, I’m getting closer to my goals. Becoming National Champion means relocating to Boxing Canada’s National Boxing Team facility headquarters in Montreal, Quebec in August 2019 to represent Team Canada in international calibre amateur boxing matches around the world.
I’m seeking corporate and private sponsorship to help offset cost of living and travelling expenses while training and competing in international bouts around the world. While a portion of these expenses is subsidized nationally, I need to supplement the remaining basic costs of rent, food, utilities and travel. Representing Team Canada requires 110% commitment, with training sessions 2-3 times a day, 6 days a week. This rigorous schedule makes working while training challenging. In return for your sponsorship, I will ensure to….

A bit about my background… I was born in Uganda, and moved several times due to my Father’s engineering profession to Egypt and Malaysia before becoming a permanent Canadian resident and settling in Pitt Meadows, BC, Canada. I have a degree in Information Technology and Web Design. Having traveled many parts of the world, I’m proud of where I came from and feel fortunate and blessed to be living the Canadian dream. I’m currently applying for my Canadian Citizenship and can’t wait to be officially Canadian.
I was introduced to the sport of Boxing about 4 years ago during a challenging time in life. I saw someone doing pads at a fitness club I was working out at, tried a session and was hooked on boxing immediately. Boxing turned my life around. I found my purpose, became fully engaged and committed, and excelled at a rapid pace. As a rookie within this short time span, I’ve fought and won 44 tournaments, experienced 4 losses, and achieved 3 Gold medals at Provincial Championships, 2 Bronze medals at previous Canadian Nationals and most recently, won Gold at the Canadian Nationals. My devotion to this sport has proven successful through my determination to make it to the top, my self-discipline to train 2-3 times a day, 6 days per week, my willingness to learn and be coachable, and by giving back to my boxing community by helping share my passion with other recreational and competitive boxers through mentoring.
According to Coach Jason Burke from the Maple Ridge Amateur Boxing Club, “Sabri is the hardest working athlete at our club. He’s driven, humble, respectful, kind, grateful, helps young members through training and mentoring, dedicated, shows up every day and consistently give it his all. I envision Sabri fighting for Team Canada in the 2020 Olympics and making it as a world-class professional fighter”. For more information, please visit Maple Ridge Boxing and Boxing Canada.
