Eleven years and 36 fights into his professional career, Frenchman Michel Mothmora was very much the epitome of a journeyman in November 2011. His record stood at a less than stellar 15-21, and there were no real signs that anything was going to change what appeared to be his destiny in boxing. While he had pulled off an upset and defeated Mehdi Nekaies (15-4) a year earlier, three losses had followed and he was brought in for the rematch so that Nekaies could rectify the “mistake” in his hometown of Toulon. However, Mothmora had not read the script and this time he stopped the local man in five rounds.
