As revealed on ArabsMMA.com, middleweight fighters Salaheddine Dekhissi and Mohammad Karaki are set to lock horns in Abu Dhabi, UAE, for the Phoenix 6 middleweight title this April. The two men have traded a few verbal barbs since the bout was announced earlier in January, and it seems Dekhissi may have turned things up a notch in his latest tirade.
In an Instagram post shared today by Salaheddine, the Moroccan published a photo of himself inside the hospital. The caption stated that he had undergone a surgery, while re-assuring his followers that the fight will proceed as planned, and telling Mohammad Karaki that even on one leg, he will break his mouth!
“Thank God the operation went well. As for my fight, it will not be cancelled. Karaki, even on one leg, I will break your mouth!”
Dekhissi Vs. Karaki promises to be one of the most exciting fights of that night! Phoenix 6 Abu Dhabi will take place on the 5th of April, 2017 in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Stay tuned for the full fight card to be officially released soon.
