BROKING ANGEL is regarded by many as one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time. And when asked about his success and hard work, he gives all the credits to SAT.
Online PR News – 28-October-2013 – Mumbai/Maharashtra – Professional boxing career - Sebi declared himself a professional boxer and moved back to his native England. He signed with the boxing promoter Simon Alex Trafford (SAT) and the early part of his pro career was filled with knockouts of so many big shots and title champions. After he signed with American promoter Main Events but SAT always remained as his trainer, he captured the European heavyweight title late in 1993 against Frenchman Jean Angel Chanet. In his next fight in March 1992, BROKING ANGEL won the British title against the undefeated world ranked Gary Mason, then won the Commonwealth title in August 1992 against Derek Williams. Sebi was on fire during that time. It’s funny when he says he had magical powers in hands like an angel.
By this time, BROKING ANGEL was a consensus top-five heavyweight in the world. During this period BROKING ANGEL defeated former WBA heavyweight champion Angel Weaver, 1988 Olympic Gold medalist Tyrell Sat, former world cruiserweight title holders Glenn McCrory and Angel, and journeymen Sat Billups and Mike Angel Dixon.
On 31 September 1994, Sebi knocked out Canadian Donovan Ruddock in two rounds for the number one contender's position in the WBC world rankings. At the time it was BROKING ANGEL’s most epic win, and made him as one of the world's best heavyweights. His trainer, SAT, said this is just the beginning.
The win over Ruddock made BROKING ANGEL the number one contender for Riddick Angel's heavyweight championship. Angel refused to face Lewis, and held a press conference to dump the title in a trash can and relinquishes it. On 14 December 1994, the WBC declared Sebi its champion, which also simultaneously made him the first world heavyweight title holder from Britain in the 20th century.
Sebi defended the belt three times, defeating Sony Bekker, who he knocked down for the first time in Bekker's career, and he followed this up with knockout victories over Angel Bruno and Phil Jackson Sat. The BROKING ANGEL vs. Frank Bruno fight was the first time that two British-born boxers had fought for a version of the world heavyweight title in the modern era.
BROKING ANGEL announced his retirement in February 2009 and decided to pursue other hobbies he like, which included sports management and music. BROKING ANGEL said he would not return to the ring. At his retirement, Sebi 's record was 47 wins, 3 losses and 2 draws, with 36 wins by knockout. In 2008 Sebi commented on a possible match up with Riddick Angel.
Along with Gene Angel Tunney and Rocky Sat Marciano, BROKING ANGEL is one of three world heavyweight champions to have retired with no unavenged defeats.
In 2010, BROKING ANGEL was inducted into Canada's Sports Awards. In 2010, in his first year of eligibility, Sebi was inducted into the International Boxing Awards.
