Interview Mohamed Khamal
MOHAMED Khamal is confident that he can maintain his dominance against Thai fighters when he makes his kickboxing comeback at LEGEND III IN Milan.
The young Moroccan beat Anuwat Kaewsamrit and Saiyok Pumphanmuang before taking a two-year break from the ring. Saiyok’s fellow countryman and southpaw Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong is a tough opponent for the attack-minded 22-year-old to return against at the Mediolanum Forum.
But the Vos Gym, Amsterdam product said he feels as good as ever as he gets ready to put on his gloves again.
Training has gone really well
I’ve been sparring a lot of good fighters like Warren Stevelmans, Gago Drago and Ibrahim Kallah and don’t feel like I’ve lost any of my fight rhythm. I haven’t for one second thought it is going to be difficult for me to come back sharp, because I’m young. We will see when the bell goes, but at the moment I feel fine and fresh. Sitthichai has got a strong left kick and Thai fighters are always dangerous. But I think I’ve got the speed advantage on him.
Former K-1 World Max Western Europe tournament champion Khamal has fought for some of the biggest organisations in the world.
But he said he is grateful for the opportunity to make his return under the ambitious LEGEND banner.
I have to thank LEGEND very much because they are giving me a chance to fight on a very big even.
LEGEND is very up and coming and only has big fights and good shows.
I think they are going to become one of the biggest organisations in the world.
