Christian Mbilli and Souleymane Cissokho, still undefeated, will both return to the rings on December 17 at the Nantes meeting at the XXL Arena. The first will be against American Alexander Vaughn, while Cissokho will face South African Mbenge, the international welterweight belt in play.
Beautiful people in Nantes just before the end of year celebrations. For his return to the banks of the Erdre, where Tony Yoka had beaten the Belgian Djeko by abandonment in the 12th round for the European heavyweight belt in March 2021, Jérôme Abiteboul will put the dishes in the big ones. The famous French promoter who has proposed all the outings of the “Artist” since the start of his Conquest has this time reserved for the Nantes public a meeting with two of the best French boxers of the moment with Yoka. On December 17, in Nantes, the spectators present at the XXL Arena will have the privilege of attending the return to the rings of Christian Mbilli (27 years old, 22 victories including 20 before the limit, no defeat) but also that of Souleymane Cissokho (31 years old, 15 victories including 9 before the limit, 0 defeat). The two men are still undefeated since their time with the professionals, unlike Yoka, beaten on May 14 at the AccorArena by the Congolese Bakole when he had never tasted defeat.
A belt in play for Cissokho
During this meeting organized jointly by Abiteboul and the handball club of Nantes, the “H” (HBC Nantes), Mbilli will face an American boxer Alexander Vaughn (36 years old, 17 victories including 10 before the limit, 1 draw, 6 defeats) in ten rounds at the super middleweight, of which the native of Yaoundé occupies the second place in the world. Cissokho, for his part, will be opposed in welterweight to the South African Thulani Mbenge (31 years old, 19 victories including 15 before the limit, 1 defeat), with the key for the winner an international belt. A fight that “Souley” prepared in San Francisco alongside Yoka under the thumb of the American trainer of “The Artist” Virgil Hunter. Mbilli did it in the simplest way, by training in Montreal, where he lives. The two boxers only have to hope that the Nantes ring will bring them happiness, as had been the case for Yoka.
