ALBANY, N.Y. -- Amir Imam, a professional boxer and a graduate of Albany High School, paid a visit to the Capital Region on Thursday.
The 23-year-old now lives in Florida, but he used to train on Quail Street before signing with boxing promoter, Don King. Imam won his most recent fight on Friday after knocking out his opponent in the fourth round.
He has a perfect 13-0 record, with 12 wins by knockout.
"I worked so hard for this. My dream is coming true. I have to stay the path and do what I have do," said Imam.
Albany County Executive Dan McCoy honored Imam with a proclamation.
