Two Moroccan warriors clash in the third fight of the card as Mohammed Medhar takes on Hafid el Boustati.
Mohammed Medhar scored a big win over Gago Drago last September. Shortly after, many fans began to take notice. He went on to beat Jan van Denderen the next month and continued his on his roll. Unfortunately for him, his hype was derailed when he lost to Warren Stevelmans on the March 6 It's Showtime event in Amsterdam. Medhar looks to get back on track with a win over Hafid el Boustati.
Hafid el Boustati is looking to add to his resume of wins, already consisting of Chahid Oulad El Hadj and William Diender. el Boustati is coming off a draw on February 6 in Spain against Manuel Hinojo. He'll look to get back on track and higher into the ranks of the -70kg division with a win. el Boustati fights with a style that many Moroccan fighters like his stablemate Mosab Amrani have become known for, being fearless warriors in the ring.
Both fighters love to brawl and push forward throwing combos filled with power shots. Medhar proved in his fight against Gago Drago that he can go full speed for 3 full rounds and out pressure a pressure fighter. Although Medhar appeared tired at times, he pushed through it with pure grit and determination. Grit and determination will be the story of this fight as Hafid el Boustati won't be one to back down either.
Punches and kicks will be flying all over the place as one man looks to establish an advantage over his opponent. Each fighter will probably take turns backing up as they try to dictate the fight. I'd give the power advantage to Medhar. He has the type of power that can change a fight, visibly rocking Gago Drago and stopping Jan van Denderen. el Boustati is a tough customer and it will take a lot to phase him.
This fight has a good chance of being a war and possible fight of the night. Both men will leave it all on the line in the ring. Medhar looks to come back off a loss and el Boustati looks to come back off a disappointing draw. Hunger will be in the air and whoever wants it more will likely get it.
Don't be surprised if Medhar's power changes the fight in the blink of an eye. Still very young, you don't even know if Medhar has his "man strength" yet. He could get it all of a sudden and start knocking guys out left and right. I don't know about a knockout, but I do think Medhar will get the win in a hard fought fight. Look for a close decision in a back and forth fight with Medhar getting the better of the exchanges.
