Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past two weeks, you know all about the current situation surrounding Desert Force featherweight champion Aziz Julaidan. Here’s a quick recap:
A little over a year ago, Julaidan claimed the Desert Force title after defeating Abdulkareem Al Selwady in 24 seconds at Desert Force Al Academiya Finale. That setback snapped a four-fight winning streak for the former champion Alselwady. Since then, Julaidan has been inactive, and the Jordanian fans have been eagerly waiting for a rematch that never materialized.
Fast forward to February 2016, Desert Force announced that Julaidan will be defending his title against Hamza Al Kooheji in the Desert Force 21 event.
This announcement by itself spawned heaps of reactions on social media as fans and featherweight contenders expressed their frustrations to the decision.
Come fight week and Julaidan suffered an injury that forced him out of the main event. In the eyes of Al Selwady, this was his chance to get back on track, and he wasted no time to declare that he is ready to step in. But what was he thinking? He was evidently weighing in at 265 pounds! 😀
In his Facebook post, Al Selwady accuses Julaidan of pulling away from the fight. The Jordanian fans supportive of Al Selwady were creative enough to back up Al Selwady’s words with the above illustration!
Where are you Aziz?
