On Saturday, Wahidullah Nezhand, a prominent Afghan free fighter, will step into the fighting cage against his Czech opponent.

This fight is scheduled for Saturday, March 23, and Nezhand will face Jakub Báňik, a free fighter from the Czech Republic.

The match is set to take place under the organization of “Octagon” in Stuttgart, Germany.

This competition will be held in the 74-kilogram weight category, with Wahidullah Nezhand, the national free fighter champion, representing Afghanistan in the fight.

This comes as Nezhand recently surrendered to his formidable Polish rival, Tomasz Langowski, in the first round but emerged victorious.

Jakub Báňik, Nezhand’s competitor, has secured nine victories and four defeats in his record thus far.

Wahidullah Nezhand also has seven victories and two losses in his athletic career.

Despite Afghan athlete’s achievements during the past two decades,  Afghan athletes face indifference and limited support domestically during the two and half years of regime change in the country.

The lack of investment in sports infrastructure hampers their development, hindering their ability to effectively compete on the international stage.

Moreover, dire humanitarian conditions in Afghanistan force many athletes to seek refuge in neighbouring countries to reach them in Western countries in search of a brighter future.

The instability and lack of opportunities make it difficult for athletes to pursue their careers and represent their nation, underscoring the urgent need for more significant support and investment in Afghanistan’s sports sector.
