Sikh-Brit Boxer Wins Award

Akaash Bhatia, the UK's first professional Sikh Boxer, won the award for the 'Most Up and Coming Sports Personality of the Year' at the prestigious Sony Entertainment Television Asia Sports Personality of the Year Awards on February 3, 2007.

The unbeaten Bhatia, 23, proudly stepped up to receive his award at a glittering event at the London Hilton Hotel in Park Lane and in doing so took his already impressive career another step forward.

Bhatia remains unbeaten in his five bouts to date following his destruction of Sergii Tertii on 26 January when he stopped his more experienced opponent in the second round of four.

The Harrow resident is already gaining quite a reputation for his good looks and attractive boxing style along with his firm beliefs in right and wrong.

It is anticipated that Akaash 'Kash the Bash' Bhatia's next bout will be in London in early April.
