Karim Bennoui has entered the YOKKAO 10 card as a late replacement for Keith McLachlan. Bennoui will face off against Panicos Yusuf, who is still enjoying his moment in the spotlight after defeating the Thai Rittuak Kaewsamrit at YOKKAO 8.
Bennoui, who is better known as “Le Chirurgien" because of his accuracy in delivering techniques, is considered one of the three best fighters in the world in the 62kg weight class. His superb mix of speed and force is sure to put a strain on Yusuf’s game plan.
The match will take place in the 62kg weigh class in 5 x 3 minute rounds. YOKKAO 10 - YOKKAO 11 that will be held Saturday 11th October in Bolton at the Reebok Stadium, are expected to have additional changes; details will be released soon so be sure to check back here often.
