Teenage boxer Ali Tazeem hailed as ‘next Amir Khan’ dies in car accident in Wolverhampton

Teenage boxing talent Ali Tazeem, dubbed the ‘next Amir Khan’, has been killed in a tragic car accident in Wolverhampton at the age of 18.

News of Tazeem’s death was confirmed by his promoter Sam Jones on Sunday morning after he uploaded an emotional Twitter post.

This morning I woke up to the news that Ali Tazeem has passed away at the age of 18. I can’t believe it I can’t even process it properly.

‘We only spoke yesterday talking about how he was going to light up the pro game, all I can think about is Ali and his lovely family.’

According to On Trend, the incident occurred in Birmingham after a car and bus collided at a junction.

Three people are believed to have been left injured, with Tazeem sadly passing away.

The highly-rated youngster only signed his professional contract with Probellum three weeks ago and had a huge boxing career ahead of him.

Tazeem was tipped to have a massive future in the paid ranks following a hugely successful amateur career, where he won 15 international gold medals from 51 bouts, losing just six times.

The Midlands star only recently expressed his delight at his signing his professional deal a few days ago.
