Two lightweight bouts added to UAE Warriors 7
Two lightweight bouts have been added to the UAE Warriors 7 card. Alexandru Chitoran faces Hussein Fakhir Abed while Dan Collins has been matched with Pepito Masangkay Jnr.
Chitoran (2-0) is coming off a win at Abu Dhabi Warriors 5. The UAE based Romanian submitted Mahmoud Fawaz with an americana in the second round.
His reward for that win is a matchup against Fakhir Abed (4-2). The lightweight is based in Iraq and doesn’t appear to have any of his previous fights listed publicly on any of the main databases.
The other 155lbs matchup announced this week leaves the card on the verge of completion. It pits Collins (1-0) against debutant Masangkay Jnr. with the former fighting out of England and the latter representing the Philippines.
The event is set for the Mubadala Arena on July 5th and will be headlined by a heavyweight title fight. Chi Lewis Parry (7-0-2-2) who registered a win at Abu Dhabi Warriors 5 will challenge for the vacant title but the identity of his opponent remains a mystery.
As previously announced Amin Ayoub rematches Youssef Wehbe at UAE Warriors 7 in a bout which will have the promotion’s vacant lightweight title on the line. Meanwhile Jason Ponet faces Ahmad Labban in the welterweight division.
The event will also feature a catchweight contest pitting Mohammad Fakhreddine against Jesse Taylor.
