Amer Abdallah against the world

Posted June 5th, 2014 12:55pm

 United States Light Heavyweight Kickboxing champion Amer Abdallah (14-0) has finally received the news he’s been awaiting his entire career. Last month the World Kickboxing Association informed the Western New York native that he is currently the No.5 ranked kickboxer in the world and with a win on June 7 he will be placed as the mandatory challenger for the world title. “This has been a lifelong dream of mine and it’s now within arms reach.” Abdallah stated.
His next challenge will be the biggest fight of his career against European champion James Wallis of the United Kingdom, who also holds the International Kickboxing Federation’s world title. “This will be the biggest fight of Amer’s career in terms of importance and the opposition” stated Team Abdallah Manager Ahmed Imamovic. “He started his training camp in Las Vegas with Jeff Mayweather at the infamous Mayweather Boxing Club and is finishing it here in WNY with Corey Webster of WNY MMA and Greg Jones of Lockport Athletic & Fitness. Rest assured, he’ll be ready.”
Abdallah recently returned from an international press tour promoting the fight in the Middle East. “I was humbled at the amount of international press we received, and everywhere I went was proud to say I’m from a small town in WNY called Lockport.” Abdallah added.
Also on the star-studded lineup are local Golden Gloves champion Joe “Son of a Legend” Taylor who will look to continue his impressive undefeated winning streak as well as heavyweight powerhouse Ed Rodgers who will make his debut. Lightweight champion and undefeated Luay “The Arabian Nightmare” Ashkar and local favorite Eric Plumeri are also scheduled with exciting bouts.
The event dubbed “International Warfare” will be held at the Kenan Arena in Lockport, with tickets available or locally at the Lockport Athletic & Fitness club (716.439.5232).
