When we started this site earlier this year we expected to be talking a lot about Japan, the Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia. Whilst we've not really had a lot of Indonesian action on the whole, we've been right with the other three.
What we never expected was that Yemen would be one of the major talking points on here. That's not a complaint, merely a statement as we get yet another Yemeni card.
As with many of the other shows in Sanaa this one will be headlined by cult fighter Ali Raymi (16-0, 16) who will be seeking his 17th straight KO over an unbeaten opponent as he takes on Omar Awdan (8-0, 4). Amazingly if Raymi can get Awdan out of there inside a round he'll be just 2 fights from tying Tyrone Brunson's world record for most successive opening round KO's.
As well as Raymu/Awdan we expect at least two other contests.
The details we have of the show will see unbeatens colliding as Fati Ansi (2-0) fights Amr Ammari (2-0) in the the Super Bantamweight division and Faisal Fittini (1-0, 1) battles Sam Iwuji (1-0) in a Cruiserweight contest.
Whilst there is 3 bouts featuring unbeaten men, lets be honest, only one will take the headlines, not matter what happens in the other contests.
