Mohammad Fakhreddine (6-1-0) will face Jarrah Al Selawe (4-1-0) for the welterweight interim title in the headliner of Desert Force 20 taking place in Dubai, UAE, on the 25th of January 2016.
With the champ Mounir Lazzez suffering injury and unable to return quite soon, Desert Force made a decision to anoint “Jarrah Vs Fakhreddine” a showdown for the division’s interim strap.
This won’t be the first time the two welterweights meet, as they have previously fought in Desert Force Abu Dhabi last February with Jarrah Al Selawi scoring a second round submission.
Fakhreddine, who has been mulling for the rematch ever since, went on to defeat Amr Wahman in Desert Force Jordan, and then snatched a unanimous decision over Mohammad Sayyah in Desert Force Beirut.
Jarah Al Selawe, the first man to ever defeat Fakhreddine, moved on to knock out Mohammad Sayyah after being pressured all throughout the opening round, reminding everyone that he is a power to reckon in the Desert Force welterweight division.
