Meet Isho Shiba, an Assyrian boxer from Hamilton, Canada, currently training in Iraq for the Olympic games in 2012 in London, England. He is 5x Canadian Amateur Boxing Champion!



He just traveled to Iraq a few weeks ago and is training with the national team. But I am not sure what the details are and how he was able to work and be able to represent Iraq. He was born in Iraq but left Iraq when he was only a few years old.

Will provide more details as they become available. Meanwhile, you can find him on twitter: @IshoShiba

I know his brother a little bit and I believe his sister used to come here on this website long time ago. Very good Assyrian family!

Unfortunately from what I know, he wasn't included in the Iraqi team for some technical reasons and not having enough time to report to training.
