2015 World Amateur Champion Mohammed Rabii Inks Managerial Deal Ahead of Pro Debut
23 year old Moroccan Mohammed Rabii is regarded as one of the most talented amateur boxers of recent years. Now he is set to make his professional debut in the near future following his Bronze medal at the recent 2016 Rio Olympics.
Before the 2016 Olympics started we picked him as one to watch out for and true to form, he lived up to expectations during the games.
Mohammed Rabii ultimately won the bronze medal in the 2016 Olympics competing in the welterweight division and had a stellar amateur career that saw him do virtually everything inthe amateur code.
Now the natural progression to the pro ranks has come and he has signed a managerial agreement with Irish boxing manager Gary Hyde of NoWhere2Hyde Boxer Management that was announced earlier today:
Head many at NoWhere2Hyde Cork (Ireland) man Gary Hyde also manages professional boxing talent that includes a current stable of: Youri Kalenga, Simpiwe Vetyeka, Levan Ghvamichava and Gevorg Khatchikian.
It is not known yet when Rabii’s debut will come but expect it to be announced soon.
For those not familiar with Rabii’s work within the squared circle so far there is some impressive footage to be watched on YouTube.
One such fight that stands out is of course his World Championship triumph in Doha in 2015. Here is the full fight of how he did it:
