On Thursday, Aug. 4, Chinese kickboxing promotion Wu Lin Feng Championship returned to Morocco in a co-promotion with Moroccan promotion The Fight League for the Grand Prix His Majesty King Mohammed VI Tournament Part 2.

The main event of the evening featured top-10 ranked featherweight Qiu Jianliang, who returned to the ring in enemy territory when he faced Aziz Hlali. Jianliang entered the discussion of top featherweights in the world with victories over top-10 featherweights Mosab Amrani and Jomthong Chuwattana. He also holds victories over former Rajadamnern stadium champions Sagetdao Petpayathai and Bovy Sor Udomson. Hlali looked to get back on track after losses to Fabio Pinca and Manaowan Sitsongpeenong.
