Azize Hlali Lives Up to His ‘Magician’ Nickname

If you thought “The Magician” was simply Azize Hlali’s nickname, you have not seen his latest post on Instagram.

The French-born Moroccan recently posted a magical edit to his page, which showed just how ready he is to resume competitive action.

In his video, the Venum Training Camp representative steps into a room wearing a normal outfit before leaping toward a heavy bag.

Then, in a literal puff of smoke, he transforms into a competition-ready warrior on the other side of the bag. After a few strikes, “The Magician” smiles at the camera and gives it a warm embrace.

Of course, his next opponent may not be so lucky.

The two-time Muay Thai World Champion will be ready to use his sleight-of-hand mastery whenever he gets his next chance to compete in ONE Super Series.
