Ran Nakash (born 1978, French Naccache, Hebrew רן נקש) is an Israeli cruiserweight boxer. He is currently Chief Commander and Head Instructor of the Israel Defense Forces Krav Maga Instructional Division[2] and holds a professional boxing record of 26 wins with 18 by knockout and one loss.[3] He scored his latest victory on January 21, 2012 defeating Derek Bryant by unanimous decision.[4] Nakash’s only loss occurred on April 2, 2011 against WBO Cruiserweight champion Marco Huck.[3] Despite accepting the fight on short notice as a late replacement for Giacobbe Fragomeni, Nakash fought a competitive fight, pressing his opponent throughout the 12-round bout, though Huck was ultimately awarded the victory on points.

Nakash was featured on the Discovery Channel’s Fight Quest where he demonstrated the techniques of the Israeli martial art of Krav Maga.[5]
