Al-Maayouf Of Saudi Arabia Fights Georgi Velichkov Of Bulgaria In London

(MENAFN- Asdaf News) Ziad Al-Maayouf, the professional Saudi boxer, enters the ring today in one of the preliminaries for the battle between Anthony Joshua and Jermaine Franklin, a former heavyweight world champion, at London's O2 Arena.

As a result of his outstanding performance at the most recent Rage on the Red Sea event hosted in Jeddah, Al-Maayouf is scheduled to compete against the Bulgarian Georgi Velichkov. In that contest, which was one of ten fights in the illustrious boxing tournament, Al-Maayouf defeated his Mexican opponent José Alatorre by knockout, securing his place as the champion of the sixth round.

A significant opportunity exists for a Saudi boxer in the upcoming match starring Al-Maayouf. He'll be the first boxer from the Arab region to fight professionally at London's famed O2 Arena. Al-Maayouf earlier took part in the Truth showdown, when he prevailed over Ronald Martinez by a unanimous vote.

Al-Maayouf is supported by Skill Challenge Entertainment, which is in charge of marketing these significant contests and is led by Prince Khalid bin Abdulaziz, founder and chairman. The Ministry of Sport and the Saudi Arabian Boxing Federation also closely monitor and support the Saudi professional boxer.

Prince Khalid stated that“It is time for Saudi youth to step into the international boxing ring and showcase their skills before the whole world.”
