Georges Eid vs. Mohammad Fakhreddine
I am sure all of Lebanon will be watching this one. Georges Eid has stepped in to fight Mohammad Fakhreddine after Mounir Lazzez sadly had to drop out of the fight. Lazzez is watching on however so it will be interesting to see what he makes of this fight.
I must point out here that Fakhreddine looks like he forgot the rest of him back in Lebanon given his drop to 77 kg. The lighter weight might make him an even faster striker.
Aaaaargh let’s do this! This is gonna be awesome!
