Yemen may not be seen as a major boxing country but it sure is active right now as they had their 4th show at the 22nd May Stadium inside a month.
As with the previous 3 shows at the venue it was a showcase for the unbeaten Ali Raymi (10-0, 10) who scored his 10th straight opening round KO. This time the Raymi was pitted against the much heavier Yaser Dalbant (1-1) though an 8lb weight advantage did little to stop the aggressive Raymi who stopped the contest in just 110 seconds.
Raymi of course isn't the only fighter in Yemen making a name for himself as Somalian born Ali Dridi (6-0, 2) also seems to be catching a bit of attention (at least here at Asian Boxing). Dridi stopped Saleh Al-Haymi (1-1, 1) at 2:20 in the 3rd round to retain his unbeaten record.
Interestingly two of Dridi's previous opponents were also on the show, though neither came out victorious. Sadeg Al Khulani (0-2) and Khaldun Al Samawi were both whut out shut thanks to Amr Ammari (2-0) and Fati Ansi (2-0) who both scored their second wins on successive Yemen shows.
Aymn Almsaodi (1-1) returned to the ring for his first fight since 2005 and came out on top against Yosf Moxamad (1-1). Not only was this Almsaodi's first fight in over 7 years but was also his first ever bout in Yemen having debuted in the US.
The card also saw a return to action for Abdu Rafik (2-0), who like Raymi, Dridi, Ansi and Ammari returned for his second in less than a week. Rafik beat one of 5 debutants on the card as he clearly out pointed Salem Hasani(0-1).
The remaining bouts saw 4 debutants in action. They saw teenager Hani Ansi (1-0) getting off to a perfect start out pointing Sagr Khulani (0-1) whilst Ahmad Jumaai (1-0, 1) made an impactful 89 second stoppage of Abdu Barr (0-1).
