Ahmad Faez (Ezy) of Khalifa MMA was dominating in his division and crowned champion in the light weight division of The Palawan Amateur Boxing Competition 2017
Wan Farhan Hj Ibrahim also won his division last weekend
This was the first time I saw a real boxing competition in Brunei. Well, I did see one long time ago when I was still a little kid. Thanks to @pahlawanboxingbrunei for making this event a reality and there were surprisingly many entries (more than 50 boxers).
The event was dubbed The Palawan Amateur Boxing Competition 2017 and it was organised by Palawan Boxing Club. The boxers came from different local clubs in the Sultanate, namely Khalifa Mixed Martial Arts, Chainblock Gym, ATIM boxing, Wolfpack, Pahlawan Boxing Club, Abdul Rahman Boxing and 018 MMA to name a few.
I managed to catch Ahmad Faez (Ezy) of Khalifa MMA in action and wow, he was really solid as a boxer. All his matches and even the finals forced his opponents to retirement. He was solid from start to finish and dominated in the light heavyweight division. The best performer of the tournament by far.
Another friend of mine Wan Farhan Hj Ibrahim won his respective final in the middle weight class. Well done, mate 🙂

Well done to the organizer on making this event possible. I hope to see more of boxing competition in Brunei. More room for growth indeed.
