IMPACT 0511: BRINGING THE WORLD OF BOXING TO SINGAPORE
Hi! I’m Ridhwan, aka The Chosen Wan in the boxing circle. I’ve been boxing since I was 17 and since then, I’ve represented Singapore at the international stage in both the amateur and professional ranks. Boxing has given me so many opportunities and taught me valuable lessons both in and out of the ring.
My boxing journey is full of ups and downs. Through it all, I’ve learned to fight for more than just myself. It’s not the belts and medals that I’m after, but rather conquering tough challenges, getting to know myself in my conquest to reach the top, and to use success as a platform to make a positive change in the society. I believe it is now my responsibility to give back and share my knowledge and experiences to help grow Singapore’s boxing scene.
Today, I run Legends Fight Sport, a boxing gym, at three different locations, and I’m proud to say that the gym is home to many people from different walks of life. The gym is one of the best ways I know how to reach out, make a difference, and introduce Singapore boxing to the world.
