    Thumbs up Undefeated! He overcame cerebral palsy to become a boxer

    Diagnosed with quadriplegic cerebral palsy due to birth asphyxiation, Zeus Andre Sequeira is no stranger to fighting.

    en he was born, Zeus Andre Sequeira had an umbilical chord wrapped around his neck and a 5-minute delay in getting the oxygen lead to a brain damage.

    Initially his parents weren't sure of the extend of the brain damage. All they noticed were his delayed eye movements.

    "I wouldn't react easily to people calling out to me," he says.

    When he turned a year old, his parents took him for a diagnostic test, which revealed that little Zeus was suffering from quadriplegic cerebral palsy.

    Till the age of 14, he struggled with a hunched back and knees bent at almost 90 degrees.

    However, a supra-major skeletal and muscular reconstructive surgery at the age of 14 gave him a chance to start over all again.

    Today at 29, he has been medically cleared to fight able-bodied boxers and is practising for his first fight as a professional boxer.

    "I get better every week and my goal is to get my first fight by the end of 2018," says the fighter, who is dedicating his journey towards raising funds for Holland Bloorview, a rehabilitation hospital for kids with disabilities.
