Amel Dehby earns a unanimous decision over Jiwaen Lee at Glory 35 Nice fight night on Saturday, November 5, 2016 in Nice, France.

Amel Dehby (28-0-0) is France’s undefeated kickboxer representing the WKN Top Team. She takes part at GLORY women’s super bantamweight tournament.

The encounter with Jiwaen Lee (13-3-0) of South Korea was the quarter-final bout of the eliminator. Dehby faced no difficulties claiming a unanimous decision. Indeed, after three rounds of female kickboxing action the judges recorded an identical 30-27 score.

As a result Dehby goes into the following round stepping closer to promotion’s inaugural title.

Also on the night Nicolas Wamba (47-7-0) took a revenge over Nordine Mahieddine (18-7-0). Their original encounter was in 2011. Back then Mahieddine earned a TKO victory due to the cut Wamba received on his eye. Last Saturday Wamba claimed a unanimous decision as well as paying back to his vis-a-vis.

In addition, the third representative of the WKN Top Team, Karim Benmansour (47-6-2) earned a majority decision over Eyevan Danenberg (23-5-0).
