Career highlight: Silver medalist – German National Championships Oldenburg 2012

Albania-born Xhek Paskali is a strong and determined competitor, who was the silver medalist in back to back German National Championships in 2011 and 2012.

Now based in Stuttgart, Paskali has also competed for national side The German Eagles in the World Series of Boxing (WSB) with whom he initially campaigned at light heavyweight but has recently slimmed down to compete in the middleweight (75kg) division and looks in fantastic shape ahead of the start of AIBA Pro Boxing.

The experience he has gained competing against the world’s elite boxers over more rounds will undoubtedly help the German adapt to the APB competition format.

A resolute and dogged fighter, Paskali likes to fire off precise straight shots followed by huge right hands when in range, a style he will look to impose in the competition.
