For three rounds, heavyweights Mark Tanios and Luc Ngeleca waded into each other in a frantic fit of violence.
But when it was over, all three judges saw it for Tanios (5-1), who got even with Luc Ngeleca (4-2) with a unanimous decision victory.
Mark Tanios Vs. Luc Ngeleca was part of the SHC 11 “Strength and Honor Championship” which took place yesterday, June 25, at the Leman Theater in Geneva, Switzerland.
The two have fought last September at Switzerland’s Lions FC 6 with the Swiss emerging as the victor that night.
In April 2016, The Tristar fighter took part at Cedar FC 1 in Lebanon where he was initially set to face Sandeep Dahiya from India. In the days leading up to the event, Tanios was called in as a late replacement to face Jordanian Selim Kobrossly only to submit him in the first round.
Confident of Mark and still eager to avenge his loss to Ngeleca, Tristar Lebanon’s head coach Wissam Abi Nader alongside his BJJ Coach Ricardo Rubiez set up for the rematch, and Tanios got the job done!
“Thanks to all Tristar Gym family for backing me up in everything I do. Thank you coaches for all that you have taught me. Coach Ricardo Rubiez (bjj) Coach Elie Zouein (Boxing) Coaches Michel Awakar and Bachir Maroun (Thai boxing) Coach Elie El Rayess (pain training :p), Coach Nidal Elementum NB (conditioning, weight training) Coach Joe Moarkech (mental and strategy) And to my head Coach Master Wissam Abi Nader for making all this happen and for all the months of hard training and pushing me forward all the way thank you so much.”
“Most of all I thank my Lord my God Jesus for everything that He has done for me. All things are possible through Him.”
