Biography

Hassan Pakandam started boxing with the Teheran Taj Boxing Club in 1950, and first competed for Iran in an international in 1952. He joined the senior team in 1955 and was a member until 1965, competing at the 1958 Asian Games and 1964 Olympic Games. He was selected for the 1962 Asian Games, but Iran elected not to send a team. Pakandam later complained about the coaching for the 1964 Olympics, noting that all the Iranian boxers were forced to cut weight severely, and felt he could have done better had he boxed in the 67.5 kg division, as he was very weak in Tokyo from the weight loss.
