As a professional kickboxer, Shahzaib “King” Rindh, 32, has successfully represented Pakistan several times. But he is not satisfied with the support the government of his home country is giving him.

Originally from Quetta Cantonment, Balochistan, Pakistan, Rindh is now based in Islamad, Pakistan. Born on March 9, 1988, he was 9 years old when he started training Wushu sanda.

Rindh went on to become a three-time Pakistan National Wushu Champion. Among the medals he has won were a bronze in the third Islamic Solidarity Games in Azerbaijan and a silver in Paras Cup in Iran both in 2017.

Representing Pakistan, Rindh won a silver medal in the South Asian Games 2019, which took place in the Nepalese cities Kathmandu, Pokhara and Janakpur from December 1-10, 2019. In the -70 kg weigh class of Wushu sanda, he defeated his Sri Lankan opponent in the semifinals but lost to his Indian opponent in the final round.

On February 19, 2020, Rindh made his debut in the ONE Championship subsidiary ONE Warrior Series. He lost via knockout to Sasha Moisa, 25, of Ukraine in a kickboxing contest in the featherweight division at “ONE Warrior Series 10” in Singapore.

“No, I am not satisfied with the Pakistani government’s support,” Rindh told Conan Daily when asked about the support he is getting from the Pakistani goverment. “They don’t support real talent. They support fake ones. I am covering my all expenses by my own, my training camps and my every thing.”

On November 9, 2018, Rindh was supposed to compete against “Silver Wolf” Feng Lei, 23, of China at “ONE: Heart of the Lion” in Singapore for the first ever sanda contest of ONE Championship. However, the match was cancelled.

On September 6, 2019, Rindh was scheduled to fight Nguyen Thanh Tung of Vietnam in a featherweight kickboxing contest at “ONE: Immortal Triumph“ at Phu Tho Indoor Stadium in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. However, the match was also cancelled.

Training out of Wilson Wushu Academy and Red Dragon, Rindh holds a professional kickboxing record of 75 wins and 4 losses. Aside from kickboxing, he is also into modelling and swimming.
