Oknin to Fight Tomorrow

Super flyweight Mor Oknin is scheduled to fight in Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico tomorrow. This was to be his second bout in a week, but his first fight was cancelled.

Oknin flew from Israel to Los Angeles, California in the United States about a week and a half ago. He tipped the scales in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico last Friday in preparation for his bout on the Jaime Munguia undercard. His opponent didn't show however, and Oknin wasn't able to fight.

This week, he spent some time back in Los Angeles. From there, he flew to Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico for training. He then traveled to Agua Prieta, which is on the other side of Sonora. Once there he weighed in and began his observance of Shabbat.

This fight will be on a smaller card, so information is not readily available. When his weight becomes known, this article will be updated.
