Meet Sheikh Waziri, the security boss cum boxer


Entrepreneur and Security expert Sheikh Waziri is a dedicated business young man who has built a budding business internationally in the security sector.

He is a 33-year old skilful orthodox boxer who recently turned professional from the unlicensed boxing background.

Waziri started his journey as a security guard, to professional executive/VIP bodyguard, to a highly respected security trainer and practising security consultant in the UK and Africa. He is currently affiliated with shake1records, Phoenix SW security ltd Nigeria and shield transatlantic security Uk.

Waziri a professional Nigerian-British boxer based in London.

His record consists of a few wins, one draw and a loss on points, with a 100 percent knock out ratio amongst other heavy weights, where he caught the attention of Xzavier Miller, the head coach at London based IQ Boxing.


Waziri began his boxing career in 2008 on the white-collar amateur competition and progressed to semi-professional unlicensed competition where he won the British and European heavy weight title.

The demise of his sister in 2016 and subsequently his father 2017 could not slow him down. He rose from the ashes like the phoenix showing great character of a true champion and developed the mental durability that led him to be accepted by the British Boxing Board of Control. Despite having no amateur experience, the British Boxing Board of Control saw a special individual with great skills and passion for sport and made an exception.

Waziri has rapidly built his reputation and since trained with Olympic medal winners and British, American international boxers.

Coined as the ‘Black Scorpion’ due to his quick slick movements and ability to adapt to all types of situations in the ring, Sheikh’s smooth movements in the ring also tie in with his powerful right hand which is reflective of the sting in a scorpion’s tail.

Waziri graduated from the University of Derby with a BA Honours in criminal justice, later going on to study the Diploma/Masters programme in Security and Risk Management at Loughborough University. Sheikh also played American Football for both universities he attended and obtained several awards and achievements including Sports Personality of the Year.
