Oubaali is a two-time French Olympian who beat Rau'shee Warren and lost to Michael Conlan in the 2012 games. He's listed as 16-0 but has had additional World Series of Boxing pro bouts. Oubaali said, “I felt good. I’d like to thank all the support here. I like this place. A lot of people here are very nice... You have to ask my management MTK Global what is next. I want to be the #1 bantamweight in the world and I want to take all the belts.” However, the honor of the world's top 118 pounder sholud go to the winner of the unification bout that is being planned between WBA champion Nonito Donaire and IBF champion Naoya Inouye. Villanueva, from the Philippines, is now 32-4-1. He can't seem to win at the world level.
