Joel Alvarez, Radu Maxim to Meet at AFL 17

Ansgar Fighting League lightweight champion
Joel
Alvarez
(14-1) of Spain will defend his title at AFL 17 on Nov.
24, against Italy’s Radu
Maxim
.

The matchup features two of Europe’s more intriguing up-and coming
lightweights. The 25-year-old “El Fenomeno” has achieved all 14 of
his career wins within the distance — all but one of them by
submission — and is currently riding a nine-fight winning streak,
with the last five coming within the AFL cage.

The Moldovan-born Maxim (9-1), who once held a spot on his native
country’s national wrestling team, is on a six-fight tear of his
own. Most recently, the 27-year-old won his Bellator MMA debut against Simone
La Preziosa
at Bellator 203, where he dominated his opponent
with superior wrestling and pelted him with ground-and-pound for a
first-round TKO.

AFL 17 “Coal and Blood” takes place on Nov. 24 at the Juan Carlos
Beiro Sport Center in Langreo, Asturias, Spain. It will air on
Fite.tv as a $9.99 pay-per-view.
