Another rising beast from Saida! Khaled Afara made his way to Minnesota once again to take part in Driller Promotions’s Mecca 6 event on Saturday August 2nd, skillfully outperforming US opponent Richard Welch.
The heavy hitter from Lebanon dominated Welch for all three rounds, earning a lopsided unanimous decision victory with all three judges scoring the fight 30-27.
“I had several opportunities to end the fight earlier, but I was a little unlucky that night. I thought he was going for a stand-up game, but he took the game to the ground in the first round. I prepared well for this fight, and I played 3 full rounds. I hope this will help me spot my flaws and better prepare for the next one”
Afara displayed superior striking skills as well as some neat ground techniques that impaired Welch’s wrestling game all throughout the fight.
One year back, Saida’s little devil took part in Driller Promotion “No Mercy III” event as well where he faced Drew Breckling, knocking him out 2.28 minutes into the first round. Check out the fight video below:
