Mickael began his career in 2005 and in 2006 he took the French Muay Thai Championship in the B Class at 71kgs.

His bad beat ended with a tournament in Melbourne Australia as he was able to best Erkan Yldiz, Willy Borrell and Baris Nezif at the A1 WCC promotion. He took home the middleweight tournament belt.
