El Mir was born in Palestine. His family moved to Denmark when he was a year old. Twelve years later he started training Muay Thai and he has been with his current trainer since he was 15.
“Hans Olesen took me in as if I was his own. He taught me everything that I know from thai-boxing but also what kind of person I would like to become,” he says.
“I have travelled half the world and fought many difference places. This is my life, this is my passion and this is what I want to be remembered for. I want to become the best and I will do what ever I can to make that happen.
El Mir has consistently dominated his weight class in the domestic and Scandinavian circuits. GLORY represents kickboxing's premier world league and he wants to replicate that success here.
“If life have taught me anything it is that you can't take no for an answer. That is also why I would never turn down a fight. I fought against some of the biggest names at our time and I am not afraid to face anyone in the ring. This is my time!” he says.
