A bantamweight (61kg) match-up has been set between Abdelali Hariri and Nawras Abdakh for Desert Force 17 which takes place in Amman on the 18th May at the King Hussein Boxing Arena.
Abdelali Hariri who fights out of “Ogum Team” spain, is a former cast member on Al Batal 2 TV show. He showed that he has some seriously impressive grappling skills against Tariq Ismail, though not making it far on the show and losing the fight. Hariri participated in Al Batal as a lightweight yet this time he fights at his original weight class. He will be looking to redeem himself by making a positive promotional debut against the Circassian crowd favorite, Nawras Abzakh.
Abzakh has fought as a professional in Cage Warriors. He has a clean amateur record of 3-0 with all his fights having been finished in under a minute by way of a guillotine choke. Abzakh moved up to professional in Cage Warriors where he fought a tough English opponent and won via unanimous decision (watch fight here). This guy is a serious force out of Team Narmouq and a great addition to the Desert Force bantamweight division.
Two fighter’s making their bantamweight 61 KG promotional debut in Desert Force! Abdelali Hariri surely has a lot on his plate with an opponent like Abzakh. How will this one go?
