French-Moroccan Oubaali Wins WBC Bantamweight title
French-Moroccan Nordine Oubaali defeated his opponent Rau’Shee Warren on Sunday, winning the WBC World Bantamweight title.
The 32-year-old of Moroccan descent was explosive starting from the second round when his constant feints and lunges allowed him to advance on Warren in term of points.
Although Oubaali’s aggressive style but counters from Warren badly hurt him.
The end of the seventh round saw intense punches exchange from both boxers. But, Oubaali’s punches were better, making it hard for Warren to get back in the game.
For Warren, the Las Vegas game was an opportunity to get revenge on Oubaali. The two boxers already fought six-and-a-half-years ago at the 2012 Summer Olympics.
Through this win, Oubaali, who turned pro in 2014, adds another achievement to his undefeated professional boxing record of 15 fights, including 11 knockouts.
