"Zahir Raheem" is an United States/American Boxing/boxer. Known as "King Raheem", his current professional record stands at 33 wins, 3 losses with 20 knockouts.

After a stellar amateur career, which included a 213-4 record, 15-1 against international competition, and a spot in the 1996 U.S. Olympic team, Raheem turned professional on November 16, 1996, with a 4th round KO win over Clifford Watford. Being among the less touted of the '96 U.S. Olympians, Raheem worked his way up the rankings slowly, before finally receiving a shot against Rocky Juarez. Raheem lost to Juarez in what many thought was a "hometown" decision. Raheem was continuously hassled throughout the fight by the referee. After the match, HBO commentator Larry Merchant said, "That referee made it seem like Raheem was fighting two people."

I've been watching him all my life.

I wish I knew. I'm just glad I have this chance. Finally, FINALLY.

I always believed in myself when nobody else would, ... I worked hard. It wasn't a gift. I earned it.

I finally got my just due, ... But I'm still not happy and done yet. I haven't yet accomplished my professional goals. I want to be a legend. I won't stop until I'm done.
