From Richmond, Virginia, Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) Continental (North America) Super Middleweight champion Immanuwel “The Chosen One” Aleem (20-3-2, 13 KOs) turned pro at eighteen in 2012.

 
 

In his first three years in the paid ranks, he build a 13-0 record against nondescript opposition, but he learned his craft fighting on both smaller cards and big shows promoted by the sports biggest promotional outfits.

From the second half of 2015 he started to make a name for himself when he defeated Oscar Riojas (12-2), Carlos Galvan (11-3-1), Jonathan Zepeda (17-1) and Levgen Khytrov (14-0), and drawing against Demond Nicholson (17-1).

He found himself part of the famous Premier Boxing Champions stable, and the WBC Silver champion, a title he captured when he stopped Khytrov in January of 2017.


 
 

His momentum came to a halt when he was beat by Hugo Centeno (25-1) the following August, but he rebounded with a victory over Juan De Angel (20-8-1) and a draw against world class Mat Korobov (28-2).

He back on track towards a world title shot, but a majority decision loss to Ronald Ellis (16-1-2) in December of 2019 was another blow to his ambitions.

A year and a half of inactivity followed before he returned in the summer of 2021, but again he was left disappointed when a majority decision went against him after ten rounds with Amilcar Vidal (12-0).

After that, even though he had only come up short against quality opponents, his career looked in ruins. He didn't fight for more than two years, but at some point during 2023 his luck changed.

Akeem signed with former fighter Tony Jeter and his Jeter Promotions, and he is now on a mission.

He returned with a knockout of Antonio Hernandez (7-16-2) last October, and then showed that he is back for good when he won the UBO title, as well as the WBC Fecarbox title, this past February by stopping the very capable Malcolm Jones (17-3) in round four.

His next fight is already set for July, and, still only thirty years old, Aleem is looking to make another statement to prove he deserves even bigger fights in the future.
