He lives in Yishun, takes the MRT, and works seven days a week running his own gym, where he provides training and fitness lessons.
But Muhamad Ridhwan is far from normal.
He is aiming to be a world champion in boxing one of these days, and is not afraid to share his journey.
“I have been a pest control officer, a cleaner, and also a car washer. This has helped build my character. If given a choice, I would not want to change a thing,” said the 30-year-old.
Nicknamed “The Chosen Wan”, he was signed by Ringstar and is now a professional boxer.
Ridhwan’s next IBO championship Super Continental Featherweight fight will be on 20 October at the Suntec City.
