The last name Ibrahim is synonymous in the world of Muay Thai. With Rami Ibrahim being the longest active Thai fighter in America, his nephew, Ahmad Ibrahim is following suit in a tremendous way.
He has won so many world and regional amateur titles, his body can’t hold them all. Last weekend, Ahmad had his second professional Muay Thai fight under the USKA promotion. He took on seasoned MMA vet, Adam Roll in what would be Roll’s first professional standup bout.
Before the fight, Ahmad took to social media explaining his plans for devastation and how people should expect “a new version” of him. He did not disappoint as he stormed forward early and executed his premonition with ease as he was able to dispatch Roll in under one round.
Tune in below as Ahmad “The Palestinian Golden Boy” Ibrahim goes head to head with MyMMANews’ own, Adam Crist as Ahmad breaks down his devastating knockout of Adam Roll, his stance on being a voice of Palestine, and hints at his future in fighting!
