Tortured journey of Izzat Kakar from a village in Balochistan to America

Syed Ali Shah : 

Poverty, unemployment, and lack of official patronage forced Izzatullah Kakar to leave Pakistan and go abroad in search of job and sports activities. In a kickboxing fight in Birmingham, Alabama, Mr. Kakar knocked out his English rival Chris Saro in just 2 minutes the other day.

“I wept a lot after the victory as there was none from Pakistan to congratulate me”, Mr. Kakar told Quetta Voice in an exclusive interview. Without any official patronage, Izzat prepared and ensured his victory against the world-fame English rival Chris Saro.  “I was the only one carrying Pakistan’s national flag during the victory”, he mentioned.

Kakar belongs to Tehsil Gulistan’s Killi Abdul Rehmanzai, one of the frontier villages near the Pak-Afghan border. Kakar’s record includes the honor of winning three battles in three weeks after winning the recent fight. “Government will encourage and support Izzat Kakar”, Imran Gichki, the Secretary of Sports Balochistan said.

“Despite difficulties, I kept continued my journey”, Kakar

“Despite difficulties, I kept continued my journey towards success”, Izzat Khan Kakar mentioned. Izzat had played in various boxing clubs in Quetta from 2004 to 2013. “In 2013, I used illegal ways to reach Australia as an illegal immigrant“, he recalled. “I put my life at peril and succeeded in reaching Australia”, Kakar recalled the troubled journey.

In Australia too, I kept continued my struggle for becoming a world-fame boxer.

However, Secretary Sports Balochistan, Mr. Gichki said that the government would provide a protocol and prize to Izzat Kakar after his arrival in Quetta.

BKFC is the most dangerous sports 

This Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) is the most dangerous sport. “Despite being aware of the danger, I decided to fight”, he informed. “I was feeling severe shoulder-ache on the occasion of the fight”, he said.

Mr. Kakar urged the government to ensure patronage of the talented and committed youth so that they could play on national and international levels. Most of Pakistan’s population comprises of youth, therefore, the government has to engage them positively, he concluded.
