Akaash Bhatia (born 1 May 1983 in Loughborough, England) is a British featherweight professional boxer. He is the first ever professional British Sikh boxer and the current British Southern area featherweight champion.

Professional career

Bhatia turned professional in May 2006 in York Hall, Bethnal Green, London. In his debut Bhatia defeated Kristian Laight on points over four rounds. He went on to win his next 11 straight fights before he fought for his first title which was the vacant British Southern area featherweight title. This fight came in November 2008 against Marc Callaghan at the Robin Park Centre in Wigan and Bhatia won the fight with a second round knockout of Callaghan.

Akaash lost his last fight, an eliminator for the British title to Jamie Arthur on points. He later separated from his trainer and now trains with Jimmy Tibbs at the TKO gym. He is set to return to the ring in January.
