Abdulrahman Dridi Ready To Face Alaa Mansour For Al Academiya 84Kg Finale in Desert Force Dubai


Abdulrahman Dridi getting ready for Al Academiya Season 3 Finale

It seems that the Desert Force Al Academiya Season 3 Finale is finally taking place as Abdulrahman Dridi will be facing Alaa Mansour the Al Academiya Middleweight (84kg) title as part of the DF Dubai undercard.

Dridi was initially set to challenge fellow finalist Ricardo Bachir who was injured and replaced by Egyptian Alaa Mansour at Desert Force Al Academiya 3 Finale (Desert Force Egypt). Two days prior to Desert Force Egypt, Dridi had still not received his Visa to Egypt and the fight was officially scrapped.

Mansour went on to fight on the card and defeated the more experienced Ramadan Mohamed via TKO in the third round.

Dridi and Mansour had previously fought on the show with Dridi finishing Alaa in round 1 via TKO (video below).

Is Alaa Mansour more worthy of this shot than the actual finalist Ricardo Bachir? Does it make more sense to wait until Bachir is fully recovered in June?

  • Visas were not issued to both fighters, so this fight was cancelled

    Anyhow, i believe that Ricardo Bachir deserves the spot more than Alaa Mansour, and he should play against dridi in next promotion

    Alaa was knocked out in first round from dridi, while Ricardo lost 1 match only via uninmous decision
