Ali Raymi issues challenge to #1 Wanheng

By Robert Coster

Colorful, eccentric and always exciting WBO #7 minimumweight contender Ali Raymi of Yemen has issued a challenge to touted WBC #1, WBO #2 and WBA #4 rated Wanheng Menayothin of Thailand. Raymi (20-0, 20 KOs) achieved a measure of fame by breaking the record for most consecutive first round knockouts from the beginning of a career. Wanheng boasts an unbeaten record of 32-0, 10 KOs. Raymi has challenged the Thai contender to travel to Yemen for the fight, promising him a $20,000 purse. “I know that in Thailand, promoters pay Wanheng in pineapples, coconuts and flavored condoms,” stated Raymi. “I’m offering him real money to fight me in Yemen.”

Raymi continued, “If he feels Thailand will pay him the same money and wants me to come to Thailand, I will be more than glad to do so because I fear no judges, always winning by KO. I know that Yemen is a better option because sponsors will pay more, opposed to Thailand where the pay will be weak. Regardless, no excuses. Lets make this fight. Don’t go complain again that I am harassing your fighter. It’s boxing. If you don’t want him to fight me, go pray for peace.”
