With Hashem Arkhagha, the former Desert Force middleweight champ, deciding to vacate his title with plans to compete at the Desert Force lightweight division, and with the now former, number one contender, Mohammad Fakhreddine confirming his weight drop to 77 KG (welterweight), fans cannot help but wonder: “Who’s next in line for the middleweight division ?”
The answer: ”You don’t have to worry about that!”. Desert Force Egyptian middleweight beast, Ibrahim El Sawi is bouncing off two straight and impressive wins by rear-naked choke (against Ahmed Oudeh, Al Academiya Finale) and TKO (against Rafat Shawe, Desert Force 12), proving once again that he is a huge force to be reckoned. El Sawi is doubtlessly in picture perfect frame to pick up the awaiting 84 KG Desert Force title.
On the other hand, Abdullah Bou Hamdan has always been impressive with a 9-3 professional record. Bou Hamdan is undefeated at Desert Force with two wins, the first by guillotine and the second by TKO against the hard as iron Mahmoud Salama.
Logically guys, this is your perfect title fight for the middle weight division and possibly the biggest fight so far in Desert Force history. Two well rounded warriors who pose a lot of knock out power and get inside the cage with nothing in mind, but to finish the other off decisively. To be honest, I doubt this fight goes the distance, but if it does, it’s going to be a heck of a good one!
