The two brothers now live in Thailand and have several Muay Thai world champion titles.
Rabat – Two Moroccan-Belgian Muay Thai artists, Youssef and Yassine Boughanem, took down their opponents on Monday’s “PSM Fight Night” in Brussels, claiming three titles between them.
Youssef Boughanem, 29, defeated his rival, Joe Craven from England, by a technical knockout (TKO) in the fourth round after knocking Craven down twice.
Youssef took home both the World Boxing Council and WKN Muay Thai Super Welterweight world titles.
In the same event, Youssef’s young brother, Yassine Boughanem, 25, faced off against Bruno Susano from Portugal for the WKN Super Heavyweight title fight in Muay Thai.
Yassine won the fight after the supervising doctor stopped the fight in the second round due to an injury Susano sustained in his forehead. Yassine is now the WKN World Super Heavyweight Champion in Muay Thai.
Youssef Boughanem started practicing Muay Thai as a teenager. Following the death of his parents, Youssef moved to Thailand with his brother Yassine.
