Feeling around the world…
“I have met many great fighters around the world but there are few who have been since their first meeting with me( it’s more than two decades) as faithful and sincerely friends. Indeed Osman Yigin and Bruno Wartelle are the two persons that I appreciate very much and for who I have the greatest respect. Two strong men both successful warriors in the rings and gentlemen, with big hearts inside and outside the ring.
For me the two represent the essence of what a great kickboxer and a great boxer should be, two world examples to follow for our youth generation. As for "pure talent" it was Samir “The prince” Mohamed, I have never seen someone fighting so naturally , instinctively & I am proud i have succeeded to give him 109 unbeaten fights, all of it being pure technic and master art !
The others ones are Habib Bakir and Mostafa “Demolition Man” Oumrani, ones of the bravest fighters I have ever seen and the more relax before a fight( they have never felt the stress before a match) .Funny fact : just before a hard fight in New York I had to wake up Oumrani as he was sleeping relaxed in the change room just before the fight .
These three boxers were member of my team that time & really exclusive warriors“
