Ilias Bulaid defends his 67kg Enfusion world title against fellow Moroccan kickboxer, Zakaria Zouggary in the main event of Enfusion Live 46 on February 18, 2017 in Eindhoven.
The phrase “Moroccan magic” instantly comes to mind when taking into account the speed and striking arsenal that both fighters possess. As well as the rivalry between them that was for all to see at the recent press conference; resulting in both fighters needing to be separated from one another before things completely boiled over from an intense (face pushing) stare-down.
The overall fight card has all of the ingredients to be one of the most entertaining events of the kickboxing year. Co-headlining is a match-up from the 72.5kg Enfusion League and one of the most anticipated rematches since last year: Nordin Ben Moh vs. Mohammed Jaraya.
Ben Moh and Jaraya had previously fought each other at Enfusion Live 37 in February 2016. That encounter was widely regarded as fight of the year with both kickboxers knocking each other down in the semi-finals of, the 70kg Enfusion Max tournament, with Jaraya the victor from a right cross knockout in an exhilarating third round.
Enfusion commentator, Vinny Shoreman previewed the overall fight card in more depth and gave some good insight on what to expect (and more):
