As an amateur, Sadam Ali was a two-time Golden Gloves Champion in New York City, and a national champion in the junior Olympics, U-19 Nationals, and Golden Gloves in the featherweight division.
Ali made his professional debut in January 2009, needing just less than two minutes to get his first pro win. Ali would win his first 22 fights in a row before receiving a shot at the then-vacant WBO Welterweight Title in March 2016. Ali, however, came up short, losing to Jessie Vargas via TKO.
But in December 2017, Ali would provide one of the biggest shocks in boxing when he upset Miguel Cotto in Cotto’s retirement bout to win the WBO Light Middleweight Title.
