Malik “Iceman” Hawkins Returns to The Ring on Dec.12th in Baltimore, Maryland!

Malik looks to keep his undefeated record and continue his knockout streak on the undercard of former heavyweight champion Hasim “The Rock” Rahman.

Undefeated welterweight prospect, Malik “Iceman” Hawkins (4-0-4kos) will be returning to his hometown of Baltimore, MD looking to extend his record again as a professional fighter.

Hawkins had a much decorated amateur career where he won multiple national championships along with a pair of golden gloves championships. In the professional ranks he remains undefeated; he has yet to enter the second round of his fights due to scoring all first round knockouts in his contests so far. 

Malik continues to show a great power and excitement every time he steps through the ropes. His last fight which was held in North Carolina against Theophulius Newkirk was stopped at the 1:53 of the first round after the referee decided Newkirk was not able to withstand any more punishment.  Malik is eager to fight back at home where, he has a big following of fans who have followed his career since his amateur days.

Malik explained how Baltimore has been through its share of tough times, but now he hopes for better days. “I want to bring life back to the city, cause we been through a lot with all the Freddie Gray stuff. I want kids to know that as long as you grind for something you believe in, you can do it”, said Malik. Malik continues to be positive role model for the inner city youth of Baltimore because he too was once in their shoes trying to find a way to make it. Boxing has been his answer and plans to make the best of it. Malik’s opponent is TBA for this event but he assured fans that he will be ready for whoever is across the ring from him on that day.

The Boxing Renaissance event which will be held on December 12, 2015 at Du Burns Arena in Baltimore, MD will be promoted by SHABAZZ BROTHERS + SHAWSTYLEZ PRODUCTIONS.
