Azize Hliali vs. Abdellah Ezbiri will make up the other half of the contender tournament semi-finals on a stacked card co-headined by, the bitter feud that is unfolding between, former welterweight champion, Cédric Doumbé and Yohan Lidon.
Hliali (17-14-1) is one of the most exciting prospects at present and although “The Magician” is coming off a defeat to, Muay Thai Grand Prix champion, Charlie Peters at Phoenix 3 London, is confident of making a lasting impression and becoming ‘a legend’.
