Nordine Oubaali (born 4 August 1986 in Lens, Pas-de-Calais, France) is a French professional boxer of Moroccan descent, best known for winning a bronze medal at light flyweight at the 2007 World Amateur Boxing Championships. In January 2019 he became the World Boxing Council bantamweight world champion.

Amateur career[edit]

Oubaali is the 13th child of 18 siblings in total. In 2006 he became French champion.

At the 2007 World Championships the southpaw bested Arginian Junior Zarate (RSCO), Spaniard José Kelvin de la Nieve 33:12, and Georgiy Chygayev (UKR) 25-9. In the semis he was overwhelmed by Chinese top favorite Zou Shiming.

At the 2008 Olympics he beat Rafikjon Sultonov 8:7 and almost shocked local superstar Zou Shiming but lost 3-3+ (jury decision).

For the 2012 Summer Olympics, he moved up to flyweight (52 kg).[1] He beat Ajmal Faisal in the first round, Rau'Shee Warren in the second but then lost to Ireland's Michael Conlan in the quarterfinal.[1]

Professional career[edit]

Oubaali turned pro in 2014. In January 2019, he won his first world title by defeating former amateur rival Rau'shee Warren via Unanimous decision for the WBC Bantamweight belt.[2]
