The French fights of the weekend
The return of the Yoka couple!
This is THE big event of the weekend for us, French and combat sports fans. The return of the two gold medalists at the Olympics (and couple, editor's note)Tony Yoka andEstelle Yoka Mossely has been talked about a lot in the French press lately. The couple, who capsized the world of boxing (and even the world at all) during the last Olympic Games in RIO with their magnificent love story / gold medal combo will have the opportunity to fight at the same gala this Friday, March 5 in Nantes, France. Tony Yoka will try to win the vacant EBU heavyweight belt against the BelgianJoel Tambwe Djeko aka Big Joe. As for his wife (Estelle Mossely, editor's note) she will cross swords against the GermanVerena Kaiser. The couple Yoka Mossely is still undefeated to date in a dozen fights (each). Will they manage to keep their invincibility in the pros and bring a new reward to the family home Response Friday the nøkers!
