June!? June brings us hot news! Mohammad Fakhreddine is a fighter who requires no introduction. He is truly one of the greats, cementing his place amongst the Arab region’s finest warriors.
ArabsMMA team has been informed by people close to Fakhreddine’s camp, that he may possibly be dropping to welterweight to tango with the best at 77! A very daring, yet risky move that could possibly either slightly dent, or ignite his career.
His decision raises several eyebrows from fans and officials, yet “The Latest” got what it takes to dance with anyone in that division. As a consequence to Arkhagha not being able to defend his title, Fakhreddine fought Thabet Agha and earned the interim middleweight title in Al Academiya Finale which took place earlier this year in January. The question remains, will he give that up right now ?!! Will he really drop his chance for a title shot that easily? Who will be the challenger instead? The 77 Kg division is well known for being one of the toughest categories in Desert Force in which every fight’s outcome is unpredictable. Could it be that Fakhreddine will face the winner from Mohamed Ghorabi Vs Anis Al Hajjajy? If so, Mohammad Ghorabi might be lined-up to compete against his old teammate in what will surely be the most talked about fight of 2014.
What an epic match up that would be. Tiger Muay Thai Lebanon is yet to release an official statement regarding this issue. Don’t worry though, ArabsMMA will keep you updated on the latest news about Mohamed “The Latest” Fakhreddine.
