Enfusion’s next event is this Saturday November 2, as the promotion returns to Belgium with an event at the Lotto Arena in Antwerp.
Presented in association with Antwerp Fight Organisation, the fight card features both established contenders and rising stars, with the Enfusion 63 KG Title on the line as Soufiane Kaddouri defends against Hamza Essalih.
Belgium-based Moroccan Nordin Ben Moh faces Milan Pales of Slovakia in the Enfusion #90 headline bout. The match is designated as a 70 KG World Contender Fight, with the winner presumably in position to face the winner of the 6 December title bout between defending champion Jonay Risco and Tayfun “Turkish Turbine” Ozcan.
Former 75 KG titlist Redouan Laarkoubi faces Youssef Challouki in a bout likely to produce good action.
The main card begins with the €2000 “KO Bonus” bout between hard-hitting youngster Nabil Haryouli and Jaouad Kebbabi. If either man stops the other inside the distance, they receive a €2000 bonus.
Former Enfusion Heavyweight Champion Ismael Lazaar is no longer on the card.
Prior to the Enfusion #90 main card, Enfusion Talents #76 takes place. K-1 veteran and former It’s Showtime 70 kg titlist Murat Direkci makes his ring return. The 34-year-old Turkish fighter, who resides in Belgium, meets another veteran Hafid “The Hyena” el Boustati, who also competed in It’s Showtime and GLORY.
Saturday’s event begins at 18:30 local time, which is 1:30 p.m. in New York and 10:30 a.m. in Los Angeles. The event is available for international viewing on a pay-per-view basis via the Enfusion Live website.
