JORDAN HAS A NEW WORLD CHAMPION!
There will be a hero returning to our shores this week after Kickboxer Oday Abu Hassweh clinched the -64kg title at the World Kickboxing Championships taking place in Budapest, Hungary.
Abu Hassweh beat Kazakhstan’s Deidar Tobaeve in an absorbing final to win a title he last won in Poland six years ago to show he is still the best in the business.
“I'm so happy to win the title,” he said. “It was tough and the competitors were strong, but I did it and I dedicate this medal to all Jordanians.”
It was the second medal won by Jordan at the Championships, following Ali Khalaf’s bronze medal won earlier in the week.
