Sunday, July 9, 2023: Mouhcine Chafi from Spain last night achieved a career high when he captured the WBC MuayThai light-heavyweight world championship strap via a first round TKO victory over Dutch/Suriname fighter Miles Simson in the main event of the Golden League promotion in Barcelona.

Both fighters started the opening stanza in fiery mode throwing everything but the kitchen sink at each other — it was Mouhcine who landed two to three precision elbows which opened a massive wound over Simson’s right eye — which forced his corner to ask the referee to call a halt to the contest during the break between rounds one and two.

Congratulations Mouhcine and team Internacional Gym for becoming the new WBC light-heavyweight king. We wish Miles a speedy pathway back to the ring and hope to see him fight for green & gold down the road.
