Irakli was born and raised in Tbilisi and is from Tbilisi’s Yazidi community.
"I wanted to follow my passion for boxing as a teenager, but the 90s were tough times. I ended up opening my own barbershop after casually cutting my family’s hair for some time. I was a barber for nearly ten years. When the business started to slip, I asked one of my customers who is a plumber if he would take me as an apprentice. He did and now ten years later I’m a self-employed plumber."
