Slough boxer Hamzah Sheeraz has been declared an ambassador for the renowned Riyadh Season.

The 25-year-old, with an unbeaten professional record from 20 fights, currently holds the WBO European super-welterweight championship.

The Riyadh Season is a celebration of entertainment, culture, and sports, with millions flocking to this annual festival, enjoying concerts, sporting events, and artistic exhibitions.

This ambassadorship allows him to broaden his horizons, connect with a wider audience, and solidify his status as a global sports icon.

Speaking exclusively to BetVictor’s boxing betting site, he touches on his appreciation for this opportunity.

“It was all His Excellency Turki Alalshikh, it was all his decision and he chose me to be one of the three ambassadors. I can only be extremely thankful and I don’t think words can express my emotions.”

“He has given me this opportunity and I can just keep getting the wins and win world titles and just become a big name and I suppose if I can eventually do that, then I can say you chose the right man.”
