Two-time Muay Thai World Champion Azize Hlali was born in Paris, France, and proudly represents his French-Moroccan descent. When he was 12 years old, he took up Muay Thai at the urging of his brother and quickly discovered he had both a knack and love for combat sports.
Hlali made his professional debut as a teenager and went on to win a French National Championship and a WPMF European Championship on the way to two World Titles. He has faced many of the biggest names in Muay Thai, such as Singdam Kiatmoo9, Saenchai, and Buakaw.
Today, he is one of the most accomplished Muay Thai athletes France has ever produced, having made a name for himself with his lightning-quick counter-punching and skill with trips, sweeps, and throws. Hlali has compiled well over 100 professional contests competing around the world, and having proven that he fears no opponent, he is eager to make his name known on the global stage of ONE Championship.
