Kami Ibrahim's trainer questions the chin of champion Stuart Laming

Queensbury Boxing League - Kami Ibrahim's trainer questions the chin of champion Stuart Laming

JACK FIGG

Title contender Kami Ibrahim will put his undefeated record on the line later this month when he challenges for the novice cruiserweight title.

Ibrahim will drop down from heavyweight to meet Stuart Laming for the title at the Effingham Park hotel in West Sussex, on the Reisser ‘Road to Glory’ bill. 

After storming to stoppage victories in all his previous appearances Ibrahim will look to continue his perfect start by acquiring his first silverware in the competition when he faces the defending champion.

Despite Laming’s experience in challenging for the Regional title and already owning the novice title, Ibrahim’s trainer, former professional boxer Anas Oweida questioned the champions chin and cited there are errors to exploit. 

“I’ve seen him fight, he’s not bad at all, I wouldn’t say he’s a great boxer but he’s not bad,” Anas said on Laming. 

“The thing is, he hasn’t got the chin. He’s very chinny from what I’ve seen in fights. Once you get him under pressure he gets even more troubled. But we’re working for either a knockout win or points. 

“We’re going there to box well, not just to look for the knockout, but if the chance for the knockout comes, we’ll knock him out. 

“We’ve been watching and watching his last fights and for me he makes a lot of mistakes so we’re going to work on that.” 

As Ibrahim drops down to cruiserweight to challenge for the title, Oweida claimed the move down in weight will suit his boxer. 

“To be honest he is more of a cruiserweight,” Oweida claimed. 

“He’s too small to be a heavyweight, but at cruiserweight he’ll be too strong. He’s better of at this weight and he has the power. I think Laming will even come in heavier but that doesn’t matter.

“We just need to get (Ibrahim) some more fights, because mentally, like every boxer the mental aspect is the hardest thing in the boxing game.

“To try and focus on the fight in front of a big crowd is very, very hard. I know from experience.”
