Marrakesh, Morocco welcomes the biggest weight class in AIBA Pro Boxing (APB), as the Super Heavyweight (91+ kg) division compete in Cycle I Round 1.

All four matches can be watched live at 22:30 (GMT+1) on
https://www.youtube.com/user/AIBAproboxingTV, headlined by Moroccan sensation Mohammed Arjaoui vs two-time AIBA World Champion Magomedrasul Medzhidov.

Arjaoui was last seen in the Inaugural World Title Match where he lost to Champion Erik Pfeifer, while Medzhidov currently holds a 2-1 APB record.

All three of Arjaoui’s victories in this competition has come on points, and the African superstar will hope to achieve a similar result in front of his home fans in Marrakesh.

Despite losing against Pfeifer, Arjaoui impressed many onlookers with his tenacity and skill, and those attributes have seen him defeat Sergiy Verveyko, Mihai Nistor and Tony Yoka in this competition.

Medzhidov is perhaps the most powerful boxer in APB, and dominated his first two contests when he stopped both Sergiy Verveyko and Ahmed Samir.

He is coming off a loss however, after being closely defeated by Magomed Omarov in January.

The Azeri athlete will be looking to put that loss aside by achieving another devastating knockout against a very durable opponent.

This will be the first time Africa hosts the Super Heavyweights, so the home advantage could help Arjaoui as he will enjoy full support in the Palais des Congres.

Expect a tremendously intense contest between these world class boxers, that could finish in a number of ways.

Can Arjaoui keep his composure and box sensibly to seal his fourth points success in APB? Or will the marauding Medzhidov add another highlight reel stoppage to his already glistening record?

Whichever fighter reigns supreme will face either Magomed Omarov or Mihai Nistor in Round 2, as those two fighters will also meet in Morocco.

Omarov has a 3-1 record in this competition which includes an excellent knockout win over Sergiy Verveyko, while Nistor was the very first boxer to win a match in APB.

Elsewhere in Marrakesh, 1-3 Tony Yoka faces Turkish debutant Ali Eren Demirezen, and Ali Kiydin competes against Ahmed Samir.
