Ibrahim El Boustati rematches, “It’s Showtime” and GLORY Kickboxing veteran, Filip Verlinden, in a grudge match that will headline Enfusion Live 49 on April 29, 2017. “The Beast” was shockingly knocked-out in his previous outing by Ulrik Bokeme (losing his first career fight in his 46th fight) at Enfusion Live 46 in a non-title fight. The rematch with Verlinden will be a title defence and the war of words between the two has been ongoing since last year.
El Boustati had previously defeated Verlinden via a close and controversial decision at Enfusion Live 41 last year. However, the “Verlidengate” saga that followed a month later, caused even further controversy around the official decision and further fuelled the animosity between both fighters. This time though, Ibrahim will be defending his Enfusion middleweight title against Verlinden (in their previous clash, he hadn’t).
