Main Events Inks Promotional Deal with Mandatory IBF Light Heavyweight Contender Nadjib "Irondjib" Mohammedi

November 13, 2014

 

Totowa, NJ:

Main Events continues to add to an already impressive light heavyweight stable with the signing of Nadjib Mohammedi, the 29-year old from Gardanne, Bouches-du-Rhône, France who earned the #1 position in the IBF earlier this year with his seventh round knockout of Anatoliy "The Gladiator" Dudchenko in his US debut. Mohammedi was announced as the mandatory challenger for IBF belt in July, but then-IBF and WBA Light Heavyweight Champion Bernard Hopkins instead elected to fight a title unification bout against Sergey "Krusher" Kovalev, which took place last weekend. Kovalev defeated Hopkins in a wide decision to become the IBF, WBO and WBA Unified Light Heavyweight Champion.

 

 

While waiting for his chance at the IBF belt, Mohammedi knocked out Demetrius Walker at 2:16 in the first round on Saturday as part of the Hopkins-Kovalev undercard. With Kovalev's unanimous decision defeat of Hopkins, Kovalev inherited Mohammedi as his mandatory challenger for the IBF belt.

 

 

"Signing with Main Events was one of my dreams come true," explained Mohammedi. "I finally have the opportunity to show the world that Nadjib Mohammedi is the best light heavyweight in boxing today. I was unknown before, but now with Kathy and her staff's work everyone will know my name." He added, "It is an honor to now be part of an organization that has the top fighters in my division and now everyone will now know the name Nadjib 'Irondjib' Mohammedi. The only trajectory is the victory!"

 

 

Main Events' CEO Kathy Duva said, "When Sergey Kovalev won the WBO Light Heavyweight Title from Nathan Cleverly in August of 2013, we began investing heavily in the light heavyweight division. Nadjib is a very welcome addition to our roster and there are big things for him right around the corner in 2015."
