Desert Force officials have announced seven fights that will make up DF 15 later on in January, with Georges Eid Vs Ahmed Saeb as the latest addition!
Stepping in as a late replacement, Georges Eid lost his last fight against Mohammad Fakhreddine at Desert Force 13 in what was considered to be a controversial TKO stoppage. While Mohammad “The Latest” Fakhreddine strongly believed that he bettered Georges “Buldozer” Eid with his late second round TKO stoppage, Eid still firmly believes that he was robbed of a fight that could have very possibly gone either way.
His Iraqi opponent Ahmed Saeb holds a professional record of 2 wins and 0 losses. Saeb took part in the first season Desert Force Al Academiya which aired on MBC Action. He kicked off his Desert Force professional career with a unanimous decision win against Saif Quandour at the Desert Force 12 event which took place last April in Jordan.
Matchmaker Yousef Nassar has confirmed that the following bouts are official:
1) Ahmad Boussairy vs Mohammad Yahya
2) Christofer Silva vs Tarek Suleiman
3) Gabriel Tayeh vs Aniss Hajjajy
4) Cris Hadji vs Elias Boudegzdame
5) Lois Cadet vs Serge Saad
6) Parham Razm vs Rami Hamed
7) Ahmed Saeb vs Georges Eid
Nassar confirmed that 5 further bouts will be announced albeit did not give any comment on who the fighters would be. He did mention that:
“There are five more to go. The fights are already confirmed albeit I am waiting for the fighters and their managers to finalize the paperwork. I can tell you we are looking at one fight at MW, two fights at LHW, one fight at HW and one at WW”.
