On Sunday evening, Phoenix FC President Chahe Yerevanian broke the news Saracens MMA fans have been waiting for – the return of Ahmed ‘The Prince’ Faress!
In his anticipated debut fight for the organisation, Cairo, Egypt’s Faress will look to wow the crowd in Dubai, UAE, and continue his hot streak of 14 finishes from 14 victories. His opponent? Kuwaiti national and six-time Desert Force veteran, Ahmad ‘Hitman’ Al Boussairy.
Faress will be looking to make up for lost time following an injury forced him out of a scheduled bout with French-Algerian featherweight Chabane Chaibeddra – so former lightweight Al Boussairy can expect to have his hands full against a hyper-motivated ‘Prince’ Faress.
Five years Faress’ senior, Al Boussairy was a 2013 Desert Force Lightweight Grand Prix finalist, where he fell at the last hurdle against then-undefeated Jordanian Haider ‘Gardena’ Rasheed. But while Al Boussairy represents an intriguing test for Faress, it’s no surprise to see the 14-2 ace in confident mood.
Faress told SaracensMMA.com: “I know Al Boussairy from Desert Force. He is a very good, humble fighter, and is famous as one of the first Gulf fighters. He has a good history in martial arts, and is beloved in Kuwait. I have a lot of respect for his personality, but I guarantee I will get through him.”
