Sami Hamed Misfits Decision

In an interview, Sami Hamed opened up on why he’d chosen to go down the crossover boxing route, as opposed to the professional route his father had taken, and that his brother has recently begun embarking on.

Hamed said, ‘I had a professional contract, but I didn’t want to get tied down for too long. The truth is, I feel like, especially with Misfits, I like the big entrances, I like how they put on the big shows, it suits me a little bit more than the professional route’.

Sami makes his debut on August 31st in the 3Arena in Dublin. Elsewhere on the card is Danny Aarons takes on TikTokker Beavo, DeenTheGreat takes on Dave Fogarty and DTG takes on Minikon, amongst a few other bouts.
