Ali to fight on the 7th of March
It was going to be a fight in Perth in March for Ali but Luke Aram pulled out so now Ali is off to the Gold Coast to fight Phillip 'Flip' Street. This will be a good fight for Ali and the exposure and experience will prove priceless.
Mohd Ali Yaakub
The Malaysian Tigers
Wins 60, Draws 5,
Phillip "Flip" Street
Lightweight 58.9 - 61.2kg
Contrary to what some believe, it is not always easy for a fighter to adapt to different weather conditions, temperatures etc. And then be expected to perform his/her best. It takes a while to adapt to travel, strange food etc. So, not only is this a great opportunity for Ali to fight a good foreign fighter but also a good chance for him to get used to traveling and then fighting in different environmental conditions. Ali participated in the IFMA World Championships in Busan, Korea in September 08, and then at the Kings Cup in Bangkok in December 08 now it'll be the Gold Coast March 09. Soon Ali will be a well seasoned/travelled fighter.
Good luck to you Ali and train hard!
