The main event title fight of Desert Force 21 went up in smoke this evening. Featherweight champion Aziz was forced out of his fight against Bahraini Hamza Al Kooheji just three days ahead of the anticipated title defense.
This marks another hit to the Desert Force 21 event which was rescheduled to March 14th and relocated to Jordan after initially being set for Jeddah on the 7th of March.
Julaidan claimed the Desert Force title in December 15, 2014 after defeating the latter 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.
Desert Force 21 goes down in Amman, Jordan Monday night (March 14, 2016) and the main card will air live MBC Action.
The event also features a title fight for the vacant light heavyweight shield between Mostafa Rasha and Osama Alsaedy, as well as a fight between Abdulrahman “Tyson” Alenzi and Amin Nachib for the first ever Desert Force heavyweight title .
