Aden Djama is already proving that he belongs in the ring although he only has one fight under his belt.  He recently won a silver medal in the bronze gloves tournament at the beginning of October 2017 and he is about to be showcased on one of the biggest amateur boxing shows Toronto has ever seen; The Friday Night Fights ‘To End Cancer’ at the Gentlemen’s Expo.

Aden has spent his short time in the sport of boxing, training at the iconic Top Glove Boxing Academy, in Sudbury.  He attributes his early success to his coach Gordon Apolloni and is inspired by his team mates, which includes Jessica Brugess, who will be featured in bout 3 of the show. 

“I started boxing because it was something I always wanted to do and I always looked up to the boxers.  My club and coach mean a lot to me because without them, I don’t think I would be the person I am today.”

~ Aden Djama | Friday Night Fights ‘To End Cancer’ Fighter

Aden is currently in grade 12 and plans on attending Laurentian University next year.  He spends much of his day training for boxing, but in his spare time he enjoys hanging out with his friends, and playing basketball.

Aden’s Fight To End Cancer

My mother passed away from breast cancer in 2011.  The Fight To End Cancer means a lot to me because I feel like I  could really help other families and people by fighting.  I know my mother would be proud of me too!
