Khalid Twaiti: “Pure Gold” Fighting for Yemen

Yemeni Boxer Khalid Twaiti has been fighting professionally for over three years and has a 6-0 record in his professional bouts, with three knockouts under his belt. Khalid is motivated by the resilience of the Yemeni people. Khalid says Yemeni’s have the “heart of a lion” and seeks to use his boxing career to represent Yemenis inside Yemen who can’t represent themselves. Khalid says, “With everybody’s help, not just me, we can help Yemenis be in a better position.”
