Ijaz Ahmed vs Kaisy Khademi 3 is here, and most would agree that the Warren management team had hoped Khademi would have walked through Ijaz Ahmed in the first fight, but that’s not how it went down.
The two domestic rivals have shared a great rivalry in recent times and if Khademi gets past his bout unscathed against the dangerous Darwin Martinez on Mark Neilson’s stacked 22nd of April show, then the trilogy is on for a potential summer date.
Ahmed pulled off the upset in the first fight for two European belts in what I believe was a rightful decision to award him the fight for his greater punch output and work rate. I know Alfie Warren believes his man, Khademi won and to make matters even more uncertain, the two super-flyweights contested a draw in their second fight for the British crown.
Ahmed has taken on two opponents with losing records since the second fight and while the lack of depth at the weight is a factor, a live contender would have been more ideal preparation for the trilogy with Khademi.

The winner of the trilogy would then be faced with the prospect of a mandatory, in the form of the winner of a clash between Marcel Braithwaite and Thomas Essomba. Braithweight edged an English title fight with the aforementioned Derbyshire and also famously dropped Sunny Edwards in a clash he would go on to lose unanimously.
Essomba also comes with a respectable reputation. A recent addition to Lee Eaton and Edwards’ sho shaver initiative to help give opportunities to fighters in the away corner, Essomba pulled off the upset against Michael Nielsen in Denmark this month.
He also was controversially only given a draw against Thomas Patrick Ward, when a clash of heads forced the bout to go to the judges’ scorecards.
