Sultan Zaurbek Faces Haithem Laamouz
On Next Month's MTK Fight Night
The show takes place at York Hall in London and will be
broadcast live in the US on ESPN+ in association with Top
Rank, and worldwide on IFL TV, with a British and
Commonwealth lightweight title fight between Gavin Gwynne
and Luke Willis serving as the main event.
Zaurbek (12-0, 8 KOs) is back after a successful 2021,
winning the vacant WBO European super-featherweight title
against Ronnie Clark last July, before a defence in December
where he stopped Ryan Wheeler in six rounds.
He now has one of his toughest tests yet when he turns his
attention to Laamouz (17-1, 7 KOs), who in his last fight
won the EBU European Union super-featherweight title when he
travelled to Italy to defeat local favourite Mario Alfano by
MTK Global Promoter Lee Eaton said: "We wanted a serious
test for Sultan and he's definitely got one by facing
Haithem Laamouz. It's a fantastic fight and another great
addition to our huge MTK Fight Night next month.
"Sultan has looked very impressive in his last few fights,
but Haithem will be coming to win and make things very
difficult, so we can't wait to see how things unfold."
Elsewhere on the event on April 15, Sam Gilley defends his
English super-welterweight title against Drew Brown, Nina
Hughes takes on Bec Connolly, plus Pierce O’Leary, Carl
Fail, Elliot Whale, Dean Richardson, Paul Ryan and Jimmy
