Hamid Rahimi Biography
Hamid Rahimi was born on 12th September 1983 in Afghanistan (Kabul). In 1992, he fled the civil war and came to Germany (Hamburg) with his parents and three siblings. A crucial experience from his childhood marked the beginning of his boxing career:
The 11 year old immigrant Hamid Rahimi was called up in the classroom. When he didn't
understand the teacher's question, his classmates burst out laughing. During recess, he was
wound up by three of his classmates. Due to his lack of knowledge of the German language, he
was unable to verbally defend himself, so he beat up the three boys without further ado. Hiscrime was rewarded with the admiration of his peers and they never made fun of him again. In
this moment Hamid decided that he could gain recognition by using his fists. His passion for
boxing was born. Very early on, he showed his exceptional willpower and talent for martial arts.
In 1998, the very first thing he did was to acquire the basic skills of Thai boxing. Obsessed with
his goal to become stronger and better, Hamid spent several months in 2002 in a training camp
in Thailand, which is the birth place of Thai boxing. Isolated from the outside world, he learned
new techniques and defeated his first opponent in the ring. The move to amateur boxing sealed
the bond of the athlete with boxing for good. The fights were no longer carried out on the streets
but only within the four ropes of the ring.
In 2003, he was discovered by the renowned trainer Owen Reece and became his protege. In
2004, boxing briefly took a back seat as he opened a Restaurant-Bar named Buddha Lounge in
Hamburg. The idea to combine the culture of Southeast Asia with modern European design was a
very successful one. Despite this, Hamid gave up his job as a restaurateur in order to return to
his calling as a boxer.
On 10.11.2006 Hamid Rahimi entered the ring for the first time under the name of "The Dragon"
- his successful professional debut. Hamid Rahimi's sporting career shows a shining track record
as an unbeaten professional boxer.
