The 29-year-old undefeated Frenchman will face heavy-handed Mexican Daniel Echeverria (21-10, 18KOs) in an eight-round super-welterweight contest. Sofiane Oumiha, who was to make his professional start on Saturday in Lublin, Poland, will have to wait. The reunion that was to host his first professional fight has been called off.


An Expected Fight: Souleymane Cissokho Back on March 13 in Dallas

Souleymane Cissokho, the 2016 Olympic welterweight bronze medallist, will therefore play his twelfth professional fight very soon in a big meeting in Dallas. He has no defeats to date and no less than 11 wins. The meeting, hosted by its promoter, Englishman Eddie Hearn, will feature on the WBC-WBA Super Fly Unification Championship between Mexican Juan Francisco Estrada and Nicaraguan Roman Gonzalez, two very popular men. The French Cissokho confided in RMC Sport, he will face an opponent who remains to be appointed to this day: « I hope to leave Paris very soon. I will face a good opponent, someone who will make me work, allow me to see where I am, after my long inactivity. Then, I hope that my fights will be mostly in the United States. That's why I applied for a three-year visa. » The boxer is ready and his desire to fight again is urgent. Indeed, forced to a long rest because of several injuries and the current health crisis, the boxer has not returned to a ring since his victory over Russian Dimitri Mikhayleznko on September 28, 2019 in Nantes, France. A year and a half after his last appearance, he will finally return to competition. A little more patience until March 13th. Bookmakers are already preparing for this highly anticipated sporting event!

Sofiane Oumiha Will Have to Wait Again: March 6 Meeting Canceled!

Originally scheduled for Saturday March 6 in Poland, Sofiane Oumiha's first professional fight is finally postponed due to the global pandemic. On Monday, promoter Frank Warren, in charge of the meeting, which was to mark Toulouse's baptism by fire, announced that the meeting would not take place due to the health situation. The star fight was to be Polish light heavyweight Pawel August, who has so far had 12 wins and no losses. The meeting organized by the English promoter will therefore not be able to take place in Lublin in Poland. The 26-year-old French boxer told the team not to be defeated. He said right away that his first professional game was coming soon. « I just learned that it was cancelled because of the pandemic. But this is only a postponement. I'm waiting for a new date, probably for March in England. » relativizes the one who would have taken part in one of the two amateur tournaments last month played by the French team if he had not had this first professional fight in his sights. At the time, he could not have known that his start would be delayed. The 60kg Olympic vice-champion in 2016 will therefore have to remain optimistic and wait a little longer.
