Kahramon began training as a boxer at the age of 11 in 1994 at the Olympic training facility in Uzbekistan, formerly part of the U.S.S.R. He began competing at the age of 14 and completed his amateur career of 90 fights with a record of 75-15. At the age of 20 Kahra turned professional and at 27 won the IBA World Championship and WBO Intercontinental title in the super fly weight class. Kahra began training others to box at the Olympic facility in Uzbekistan in 2007. Now retired from competition, he continues his affiliation with the school and has started to train fighters in the United States since moving here in 2013. We are proud to have Kahra on staff at Hurricane Boxing. Please check our schedule to see when Kahra is teaching group classes. He is also available for private instruction for those looking to compete as well as for people interested in the fitness benefits of boxing.
“Even as a little girl I loved watching boxing on TV. I vividly remember my father and uncles talking about “The Rumble in the Jungle,” and “The Thrilla in Manila.” Exciting times! I never thought women could box too. I was introduced to boxing through a personal trainer, loved it and then found Coach Golemis. I’ve been hooked ever since. In addition to being co-owner of Hurricane Boxing I also teach yoga and have owned Serenity Now Yoga in Mt Pleasant, SC since 2004. Believe it or not yoga and boxing complement each other very well; the perfect yin/yang.”
“I was born in Cincinnati Ohio but grew up in Charleston. I’ve been boxing since I was 13 years old. I recently devoted five years serving in the United States Marine Corps and am happy to be back and doing what I love again which is training and teaching Olympic-style boxing. I am highly passionate about the sport and give training, as well as my students, 110%. All I ask of the people I train is to give back the same kind of hard work that I put in to training them. Pain is temporary, push through it and what lies behind is success.”
Brian is a native Charlestonian and, having served his country for 8 years, a veteran of the United States Army. He is currently pursuing his undergraduate degree in history at The Citadel. In addition to working as a trainer he also competes as an amateur for Hurricane Boxing.
