The Ray Way – Victor Rabei wants to be moved like Moylette following Assassin switch

Victor Rabei [3(0)-0] wants some of the Ray Moylette treatment and signed with Assassin Promotions to get it.

Mayo man Moylette [8(3)-0] was Ireland’s busiest pro prospect in 2017 fighting eight times between March and November.

The 2011 European gold medalist has fought in Ireland, England, and America and looks set for Massachusetts State title fight in March.

If that title fight comes off, ‘Sugar Ray’s’ debut year will go down as a standard bearer.


Hungry pro Rabei has certainly been impressed and wants to do something similar to his fellow lightweight

Rabei has fought three times since turning over with Red Corner Promotions but has teamed up with Assassin this week after being promised regular fights and a chance to trade leather around the globe.

“I’m very excited to have signed with Assassin. I think they have done a very good job with Ray and they have a similar plan for me,” he told Irish-Boxing.com

“As a fighter, I want to be in the ring as much as possible and Assassin can provide that for me. This year we will be fighting in Ireland, USA, U.K. And hopefully Mexico too. So I’m really excited for this year.”

The Steven O’Rourke-trained Rabei has worked closely with Red Corner up and until this point and it seems the relationship will continue.

Red Corner are working together with Assassin for the inaugural Ireland’s Last Man Standing card on March 3rd – a bill which features Rabei – and it seems they will work together with regard to ‘The Chisinau Cyclone’.

“Things with Red Corner have not changed, I’ll be on every show they run,” stated the Rathmines-based Rabei.

“I’m extremely happy with how they run things. Jonathan, Andy and Paddy are doing a phenomenal job. So I’m looking forward to working with them too.”

Rabei becomes the sixth Irish boxer affiliated to Assassin alongside Moylette, Darren Cruise, Vladimir Belujsky, and Paddy and JJ McDonagh.
