Former Contender reality series fighter Ahmed Kaddour (26-2-1, 10 KOs) has rejoined trainer Brian Mathiasen to prepare for the Nordic Fight Night in Frederikshavn on September 7. The 31-year-old light middleweight, who last fought in September 2012, will face Aleksei Tsatiasvili (4-4, 2 KOs) from Estonia. Mathiasen says it’s now-or-never for Kaddour, who has been given one last chance and will be put through a brutal training camp.
“Ahmed has made so many wrong moves in his career,” Mathiasen said. “He has had quite a few adventures outside the ring. But inside the ring, he has done nothing. He has squandered his unique talent. I trained him at the start of his professional career for ten fights. Back then, he had the whole world in front of him. At first I was negative when he asked me to train him again, but now we will give it a go. This is his last chance, and he is making good progress in the gym. He has not been training hard for the last ten years, so it takes some time for him to get in great shape again.
“But now he is back in the routine of training every day, and his body is starting to get used to it. There is still some training to do to get into top shape, but in October he will be in the shape of his life, if he can keep his motivation. And on September 7, he will ready for a six-rounder.”
