KARACHI: Pakistan's up and coming mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Mehmosh "The Renegade" Raza will take on India's Dhruv Chaudhury at the IMPI World Series in Hong Kong on April 1.
Raza, 21, who recently defeated Haroon Sohail for a second time at Fighting Alliance 5, boasts a career 3-1 record as per Tapology.com, with his sole defeat coming at the hands of Philippines' Jeorey Orao at UGB MMA Championship 14: Affliction last year.
Chaudhury, on the other hand, is two years Raza's junior but, with a career record of 8-5, he has more fighting experience than the Islamabad native.
Raza, however, remains the least bit bothered by the edge Chaudhry has.
"My opponent may have four times as many fights as me but I have 10 times more heart!" claimed Raza on his Facebook page. "Inshallah I will bring glory to Pakistan!"
Raza is trained by Islamabad's famous MMA training duo of Ali Sultan and Ehtisham Karim at their Fight Fortress gym, where he rubs shoulders with established fighters such as Ahmed Mujtaba and Uloomi Karim.
