About Elisha Obed
Elisha Obed: The Bahamian Boxer Who Fought His Way to the Top
Elisha Obed was born on February 21, 1952, in the Bahamas. He grew up in a poor family and had to work hard to make ends meet. However, he had a passion for boxing, and he pursued it with all his heart.
Obed started his boxing career in the Bahamas, where he quickly made a name for himself. He was known for his speed, agility, and power, and he quickly became one of the top boxers in the country. He won several championships and was soon noticed by boxing promoters in the United States.
In 1975, Obed moved to the United States to pursue his boxing career. He started fighting in small venues, but his talent was quickly recognized, and he was soon signed by a major boxing promoter. He fought some of the top boxers of his time, including Sugar Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran, and Marvin Hagler.
Obed's biggest fight came in 1980 when he fought Sugar Ray Leonard for the WBC welterweight title. The fight was held in Las Vegas, and it was one of the most anticipated fights of the year. Obed gave it his all, but he was ultimately defeated by Leonard in a close fight.
Despite the loss, Obed continued to fight and remained one of the top boxers in the world. He retired in 1985 with a record of 38 wins, 7 losses, and 1 draw. He was inducted into the Bahamas Boxing Hall of Fame in 2009.
Obed's legacy lives on, and he is remembered as one of the greatest boxers to come out of the Bahamas. He was a true inspiration to many young boxers, and his determination and hard work continue to inspire people around the world.
