Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- Moroccan boxer Mohammed Rabii won 3-0 against Kenyen boxer Rayton Okwiri in the welterweight fight at Rio Olympics, Brazil.

Rabii won the first round 29-28, the second one 30-27, while he managed to lead 29-28 in the last one.

Rabii said that “the fight was very difficult for me, especially given the fact that the Kenyen boxer is stronger physically than me.

“He is also well-experienced as he played many times fights of 8 rounds.

“What made the fight more difficult is that the Kenyan boxer is famous for his random boxing style.

“Thankfully I did follow thoroughly the advises of my coach,” Rabii closed.

It is worth reminding that Rabii is the current world champion of boxing (-69 kg).
