The name Syed Hussain Shah won't mean much to Western fight fans however for boxing fans in Pakistan the name well be the most famous of any Pakistani born fighter, and until recently with the emergence of Muhammad Waseem that claim was pretty much unchallenged.
For those unaware Shah was an Pakistani boxer who competed at the Seoul Olympics in 1988, fighting in the Middleweight division. Not only did he compete at the Olympics but he also went on to claim an Olympic Bronze medal. That medal was an historic one for Pakistan as he became only the second individual competitor to claim an Olympic medal, following Muhammad Bashir's bronze medal in 1960.
The success of Shah lead to a Government medal and, in 2015, a movie based on his life written and directed by Adnan Sarwar. Sarwar, and released by Logos Films & Media, who put the movie up, in full, on youtube.
The decision to put the movie, titled "Shah", online was to stop piracy and allow it's legacy to continue and we'd like to share that with fight fans by posting the video below, giving those unaware of Shah, the movie and the man, a chance to see the movie in full. Sadly it's market may be limited by the fact that it's in Urdu but it's well worth a watch for those who who speak the language, or those who just want to know more about Shah.
Some things don't fit in elsewhere on the site so have been put here as a result.
