Babak Ashti, Founder Superior Group International:
– Bouts with young fighters at the start of their careers usually tends to be very interesting, as the athletes do their utmost to show their skills. Personally, I love these bouts. One of the things I like most about my work is that I have the privilege to be able to give young Swedish athletes the opportunity to build a professional career on Superior Challenge’s platform.
