Suleimen Akdrashev, a hard working man, a lover of boxing, was inspired by dreams and goals. A born leader who was always willing to help. Despite having to cope with and deal with a heart problem from an early age, Suleimen focused and devoted all of his energy into supporting those who needed it the most. A young man who sought to promote talented athletes from the boxing world by giving them the tools to shine bright and intensely.
Suleimen, who unfortunately died at just 24 years of age, was an inspirational example for all those who knew him. He overcame obstacles, he never gave up and he dedicated himself to work in favor of sports, which earned him the so well deserved honor of being elected in KAZAKHSTAN as young leader of the year.
