Yusuf gets big win at combat sports event

Panicos Yusuf was looking battered and bruised but nothing would take the smile away from his face on Sunday as Cyprus’ two-time world Muay Thai champion picked up a unanimous points decision over Malaysia’s Mohammed Bin Mahmoud in Tokyo.

“I’ve been doing this for 19 years and you know what, the day they stop paying me is the day I stop fighting,” he said. “Seriously though I represent Cyprus officially but my mother is from the Philippines, by father is Turkish-Cypriot, I’ve been living in the United Kingdom for half my life so I feel like I am representing all those places and all these people,” said Yusuf.
“I get support from all those countries and even more and that just makes me so proud.”
