When he challenged for the Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) world Super Middleweight title in May of 2016, the BoxRec of Iranian warrior Sajad Mehrabi was 14-0-2.


A few years later, due to reasons we can only speculate on, all bouts which had, from recollection, taken place in Iran had been removed from BoxRec, but Mehrabi remained a tough and very capable fighter all the same.

In his previous outing before fighting Thomas Mashali (17-4-1, 9 KOs) for the UBO title in Dar Es Salaam, Mehrabi had scored a draw against one of Tanzania´s biggest boxing heroes, Francis Cheka, so the local fans knew everything about his qualities.


And he showed them again against Mashali, but lost the fight by questionable split decision (115-13, 113-115, 112-116) after twelve gruelling rounds where the home-town fighter was rocked on several occasions.


Mehrabi´s next fight acknowledged by BoxRec came in November of 2020, when he defeated undefeated Pavel Shelest in Belarus.

Two years later he knocked out another undefeated opponent, Omar Faruk, in Bangladesh, and less than two weeks after that did the same to journeyman Prince Tetteh in Ghana.

Last April, at the Ramindra Lumpini Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, Mehrabi won the WBC Asian Continental Light Heavyweight title when he stopped locally-based Frenchman Emmerick Dewaele (8-0, 8 KOs) in the second round.

At thirty-seven, Mehrabi appears stronger than ever and is a boxing man through and through. At least as late as 2017 he was also still fighting as an amateur at world level, and is actively working as a trainer for up-and-coming talent.

We have to say, we don't know what his true record is, but we know that Sajad Mehrabi is a huge mouthful for anyone who steps in the ring with him.
