Since cutting a rugged path through all comers after claiming gold at the 2016 IMMAF World Championships all eyes have been on Shoaib Yousaf. A silent but rather violent individual who isn’t much of a talker, a fighter nonetheless who is keen to express his skills in the cage. He possesses crisp striking and never knowingly wastes shots. He’s as proficient standing up as he is on the ground skills of which he has honed by not rushing his unbeaten amateur career.
The support will be heavy for Yousaf this Saturday when he meets Jordan Vucenic who is on a similar upward tangent if you include his amateur prowess and is also riding an impressive win streak. He’s similar to Yousaf in that he carries the same very calm, self assured demeanor, never cocky or over confident. Its this aura that surrounds both men that makes this a difficult fight to predict the outcome.
ACB couldn’t have matched two of the UK’s brightest stars at such a pivital time in their careers. It’s an old cliche but someones 0 will undoubtedly go on the night and this clash has all the makings of a thrilling fight of the night bout. Look out for either of these two picking up one of many of the fight night bonuses that will be handed out by a promotion that is not stingy when it comes to rewarding its athletes for a job well done.
