Two Wbc Asia Title Fights Headline Huge Rising Stars Event In Dubai

Two WBC Asia title fights will top an action-packed bill when D4G Promotions host their incredible ‘Rising Stars’ event at the Conrad Hotel in Dubai on Friday.

It sees a number of extremely talented Dubai-based fighters compete on the card, which will be broadcast live in the US on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank, on ESPN Knockout in Latin America, and worldwide on IFL TV, whilst also being live on the radio on Channel 4, 104.8.

Luxury watchmaker ‘Hublot’ will be the proud title sponsor for the event, and having one of the biggest brands in the world supporting boxing is once again helping to bring big fights to Dubai.

A cruiserweight battle between Ali Baloyev and Rolly Lambert Fogoum was due to headline the event, but a medical issue has forced the contest to be cancelled.

The card proceeds with two sensational title fights, as Dubai-based Hasibullah Ahmadi (12-0, 4 KOs) headlines the show when he collides with Rauf Aghayev (31-9, 14 KOs) for the WBC Asian featherweight title, and Apichet Petchmanee (9-0, 2 KOs) and Phumiritdet Chonlathondamrongkun (7-0, 7 KOs) meet for the WBC Asia lightweight title.

Several proud Dubai residents will compete on the bill too, as Faizan Anwar (7-0, 4 KOs) goes up against Ricky Sismundo (35-15-3, 17 KOs), Bader Samreen (2-0, 2 KOs) takes on Sharobiddin Jurakhonov (2-3-1, 2 KOs), and Sultan Al Nuaimi (3-0, 2 KOs) shares the ring with Mishiko Shubitdze (17-18-3, 8 KOs).

On the undercard, Jamie King (1-0, 1 KO) fights Taryel Jafarov (7-2, 6 KOs), Ryan Aston (20-5-2, 8 KOs) squares off with Shalva Guchmazovi (3-6-2, 2 KOs), Khurshid Tojibayev (4-0, 2 KOs) faces Achiko Odizadze (22-17-1, 8 KOs), and Fahad Al Bloushi (4-1, 1 KO) meets Medi Miro (0-1).
