Aiemann Zahabi Fightquest 17 post-fight interview

Facing a opponent with over 25 amateur boxing matches, Aiemann Zahabi won by 3rd round rear-naked choke at Fightquest 17. I spoke with the 23 year-old after the fight about utilizing his Muay Thai background, going for the finish, the advantage of having his brother Firas Zahabi as a coach, and how soon he’ll be ready to go pro.
