I think you need to see the quality of fighters that Ali is fighting now.Yes we like Ali to win, but that is not our priority. We want him to get exposure and experience fighting some of the world's best.
Now Ali has been offered a title fight with Chris White,Australia's best in the 57kg category.This is not easy to get but based on his performance with Flip he has managed secure the fight. It is also not easy to get an offer to fight in Australia and let me remind you the overall quality in Australia is very good!
Yeah we could choose easy fights for Ali, but we want more for and from him. If we just give him easy fights, how will he ever improve? What would he learn from it. I'm sure all of you out there who know a little about Muaythai realise what we are trying to do for Ali and in fact all the Malaysian Tigers. We want to develop world class fighters, this would not be possible if we were overly protective and not expose our fighters to the best. If we don't fight at a world class level, how could we possibly know where we stand.
