Status: Former ONE Athlete
A national, intercontinental, and world champion in kickboxing, France’s Florent Kaouachi was originally born in a small town north of Paris. However, his family had to move to the remote island of Reunion when he was 14 years old, as his father had accepted a job there. While relocating can be tough task for any teenager, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
While he was there, Kaouachi took up Muay Thai at the age of 15, and though he originally began training just for fun, he turned out to be a natural. He later won a French National Kickboxing Championship, and realized his true potential.
Since then, he has put together an excellent winning record, and captured three world championship belts along the way. Now, he joins a superstar roster of the world’s best strikers in ONE Championship, and is beyond excited to be competing on the global stage in front of the largest possible audience in his career.
