As an amateur, he captured a bronze medal in the Military World's Championships 1999 and the French amateur title in 2000. “I'm very excited, proud, and honored to sign with Joe! I feel very comfortable with him, and am certain we will make for a great and successful team!” said Oubaali.
DeGuardia echoes the sentiment: “We are excited to add former French champion Ali Oubaali to the Star team. He is an exciting fighter that will entertain fans with his style. Ali promises he will live up to his nickname "The Hurricane."
Manager Paul Haberman says that pairing with Star will help introduce an all-new audience to Oubaali’s power-punching personality. “Ali is ready to make a statement here in the United States, and with the promotional savvy of Star Boxing behind him now, warn them all: The Hurricane is coming, and the world's top super lightweights are in the eye of the storm!"
Oubaali will compete in the super lightweight division and has relocated to the United States to train and fully dedicate himself to his dream of winning a world championship.
