Three time boxing champ Anton Hellström returns to face red-hot Jaafer Mohammed at FCR 15
While there have been plenty of fantastic pro bouts announced for Fight Club Rush 15, there's still plenty of room for world class amateurs.
Anton Hellström is now set to return for his third FCR bout against rising prospect Jaafer Mohammed. The bout will take place on the FCR 15 preliminary card, broadcasted on fcrmma.com.
Hellström is a three time Swedish boxing champion who has no problems entering vicious striking exchanges. He made his amateur MMA debut at FCR 10 against Dimitris Dimitriadis. Hellström looked sensational, but was disqualified in the second round due to an illegal knee.
In his subsequent FCR bout he faced rising star Martin Corney - who is set to make his pro debut at FCR 15. The FCR 12 bout was over quickly as Corney took Hellström down immediately, finishing via first round submission.
Now Hellström returns after recovering from a knee injury, eager to get back into the mix and to secure that first MMA win. On top of that Hellström trains regularly with the likes of Adam Westlund and Christian Stigenberg at Söders Fight Gym.
Mohammed has been somewhat of a diamond in the rough who holds wins over former FCR fighters Jafar Yousifi and Anton Ringvall.
Mohammed breakthrough moment occurred at FCR 14, facing local favourite Robin Kohzadi - who is also a representative of the Swedish national team in amateur MMA. Mohammed took an early lead, pressuring and punishing his opponent at every turn, securing a second round TKO. After FCR 14 everyone knew who Mohammed was.
As is always the case: there are no easy fights in Fight Club Rush - meaning the winner between Hellström and Mohammed will be firmly established atop the Swedish amateur rankings.
