Road To Nationhood Series: The Iban Boxer

Boxing is more than just a fight, it's how we earn points in a fight.

Road To Nationhood Series: The Iban Boxer
‘The Iban Fighter’ follows the rise of Biki’s career from his humble beginnings in rural Sarawak, through his rigorous army training where he was forced to drop-out, to his grueling 4-year training on the road to the Commonwealth Games that would put Malaysia on the regional map for Asian boxing.


This film charts Biki’s steady climb to Gold glory through international tournaments in Thailand, Cuba, Uzbekistan, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. He is one of only 2 indigenous people from Malaysia at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, USA, a very proud moment for the nation.
