Unbeaten amateur champion Muhammad Mokaev continues to make headlines ahead of his highly-anticipated professional debut. Mokaev, a two-time IMMAF junior world champion and two-time European champion, has a perfect amateur record of 23-0 and will make his pro debut against Northern Ireland’s Glenn McVeigh on Saturday at Brave CF 37. Mokaev had numerous opponents drop out before McVeigh made his pitch on social media by calling the Dagestan-born, Manchester-based fighter a “bum.” The pair have history together, with McVeigh claiming that he’s been calling out Mokaev for years, but the fight never came to fruition. The two finally came face to face when they touched down in Stockholm and had to be separated on multiple occasions.
