THE son of legendary boxing champion Nader Hamdan, Hassan is looking to follow in his father’s footsteps and will make his boxing debut in the pro ranks at Club Punchbowl next month.

One of the main features of the night on Saturday, August 17, Hassan is trained by boxing great Jeff Fenech, with father Nader preferring his multi-talented son pursue a soccer career but Hassan thinks otherwise.

“Headlining this event will be Jackson Donnelly vs Luke Bunder for the NSW Supermiddleweight title over eight rounds.

“Wollongong’s Jeremiah Jabbour in his pro debut, takes on Luke Southon of Bankstown, while North Sydney’s Haider Helfy taking on Taree’s Ryan Spencer, with plenty of more match ups to come.”
