American Raymond Daniels will defend his Bellator Kickboxing Welterweight Title against Zakaria Laaouatni of France at Bellator Kickboxing 11.
Bellator Kickboxing 11 takes place on Saturday December 1 at the RDS Stadium in Genoa, Italy.
Daniels, a karateka turned kickboxer known for his spectacular techniques, makes the second defense of the welterweight title he won against Karim Ghajji at Bellator Kickboxing 7. In April, he defeated French veteran Djibril “Grizzly” Ehouo on points in his first title defense. Laaouatni won a four-man 77 kg tournament in the Partouche Kickboxing Tour earlier this year, but lost in the Finale semifinals to eventual winner Karim Benmansour.
Daniels-Laaouatni is the second title fight announced for Bellator Kickboxing 11. It was previously announced that Gabriel Varga will defend his Bellator featherweight belt against Shan Cangelosi of Italy.
French veteran Karim Ghajji is also scheduled for action against Yuri Bessmertny of Belarus.
