Chicago cabby remembers reign as Iraq's boxing champ

Today we had the best cab ride home from the airport. Our driver was Estaifan Shilaita and we were all slack-jawed listening to his story. 

There is actually a documentary about him in the works. Have a listen to his interview on WBEZ and check out the trailer for the movie.

Before Estaifan Shilaita was a cab driver in Chicago, he was Iraq’s national boxing champion, reigning in the ring from 1968 to 1976. He tells Worldview what it was like to box before Saddam Hussein came to power.
