EUROPEAN CHAMPION & WORLD SILVER MEDALIST, FRANCE’S AXEL SOLA ENTERS 2019 OCEANIA OPEN

France’s number-one amateur MMA contender, Axel Sola, is set to enter the 2019 IMMAF-WMMAA Oceania Open Championships, taking place in Auckland, New Zealand, from 13-14 April.

Regarded among the world’s top amateur mixed martial artists, Sola stands as the world’s number-one ranked welterweight and holds 5th place in the international pound-for-pound rankings.

A significantly decorated amateur contender, Sola earned the silver medal in 2017 at the IMMAF World Championships, in what was his first international tournament appearance. The 21-year-old then progressed to win gold in Bucharest, at the 2018 IMMAF European Open, in arguably the most challenging division in amateur MMA.
