BATTLE TO CROWN SINGAPORE’S TOP SUPER WELTERWEIGHT BOXER IS ON AT THE RING FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP VI

PhilBoxing.com



Hamzah Farouk.

With two regional title fights, six additional professional match-ups and five amateur title bouts on display, this will be the largest TRFC event to date


SINGAPORE, 20th March 2019 – The race to become Singapore’s top super welterweight boxer is on as the top two boxers in the division – France’s Abdelelah Karroum (1st) and Singapore’s Alexandrew David (2nd) – will match up against one another at the sixth edition of The Ring Fighting Championship (TRFC).

Happening at The Ring Boxing Community on 12th April 2019, the main event of the night will see both boxers attempt to break the other’s unbeaten fight streak as Karroum (4-0-0) and David (4-0-1) battle it out for the World Boxing Council (WBC) Asia Silver title.

Since turning professional in early 2018, Karroum has put up impressive performances in the boxing ring – securing four victories, of which all four were knockouts. This will be the 26-year-old’s sternest test to date, as this will be the first time he will match up against an unbeaten opponent in David.

Karroum commented: “Alexandar is a good boxer, but there will only be one winner on the night – me! I work very hard day after day and I have only one goal in mind, which is to win the WBC Asia Silver title!”

Like Karroum, David has put up top displays since turning professional three years ago. Despite not earning a win in his last boxing bout, the 27-year-old impressed against the hard-hitting Malaysian Keng Fai Hui – whose past four victories prior to facing David were all knockouts – to earn a draw.

David remarked: “This fight no doubt, will be different. I have utmost respect for my opponent, Karroum, and I expect it to be a thrilling bout, possibly going the full eight rounds. It's a great shot at the title and I'm ready to rise up and get my hands on the belt. This title will be with the fighter who's on top of his game come that night.”

The co-main event of the night will see Singapore’s Hamzah Farouk attempt to extend his seven-fight winning streak when he defends his WBC Asia Continental Super Featherweight title against experienced Thai boxer Paiboon Lorkham, who has 30 fights under his belt.

Farouk is confident of retaining his title and said: “The belt is not on my mind as I'm preparing for the fight. For me, it is just like any other fight and I'm training just as hard, if not harder than ever before. I aim to be the best version of myself on that day and I want the world to start noticing my skills, speed, and power. I know my opponent is training hard to try and knock me out, but he is no threat to me. He will bring his best on that day, and so will I. I believe I am a better boxer and work harder, so I will get my hands raised in victory come fight night and walk out of the arena still as the WBC Asia Continental Super Featherweight Champion.”

Big things are in store for former Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Atomweight Champion Kirstie Gannaway following her professional boxing debut win late last year at The Ring Fighting Championship V. With a detailed plan and dedicated team behind her, Gannway will look to challenge for a regional title towards the end of the year, but next up for Gannaway is a match up against Indonesia’s Nadya Nakhoir.

Looking ahead to her match and what’s in store for her in the boxing ring, she said: “My next fight is always the most important fight for me. The switch from MMA to boxing has been a tough yet insightful process. I am grateful to be working with my team at The Ring, who have built an intense and well thought out training program for me. Although I am proud to say that I have seen great improvement in my boxing game since my debut last year, I’m always focused on learning and evolving as a fighter.”

TRFC VI

It’s clear the sky’s the limit for The Ring Fighting Championship as they once again aim to deliver more top-notch fights for boxing fans, with TRFC VI being their biggest event to date. There will be a total of 13 fights happening throughout the night – eight professional fights and five amateur boxing bouts, where all five bouts will be TRFC Amateur title fights.

Beyond looking to constantly deliver quality boxing events in Singapore, Ruchdi Hajjar, the founder of Golden Glove Asia Promotions (GGAP) and owner of The Ring Boxing Community, is committed to building up the calibre of boxers in Singapore, with 13 Singaporean fighters featuring on TRFC VI’s card.

Hajjar is delighted with the progression of TRFC and how the local boxing scene has grown in the past few years and said: “What we’ve achieved since we started our very first TRFC event in April 2017, has been nothing short of tremendous. The team at GGAP has been instrumental in putting together and delivering an incredible platform to promote and elevate the local boxing scene, and the results and crowds at the last TRFC speak for itself. We’ve always been committed to building up the strength and depth of local boxers in Singapore, and it’s great to see that we have 13 local boxers competing at TRFC VI. Beyond our local community, the team at GGAP is constantly working to sign top talents from all around the world, and to hopefully take TRFC abroad soon!”

TRFC is sanctioned by the Singapore Amateur Boxing Association and the Asian Boxing Council.
