Nawras Abzakh announced to redeem his career at Brave 10: The Kingdom Rises to be hosted in Amman, Jordan. Abzakh signed with Brave Combat Federation during the ninth edition of the event hosted at Bahrain on short notice to face veteran fighter from Brazil, Felipe Efrain. Abzakh went toe to toe against a well prepared Efrain, however in the following bout Abzakh lost his first ever professional fight by technical knockout.
Jordan has high expectations for Nawras to come back in his second fight since the bout is happening in his home turf before his friends and family. The initial plans by Brave Combat Federation was to provide a bout against Michael Deiga-Schek, a similarly experienced fighter who is coming off a loss. Deiga-Scheck had to pull out of the bout due to injuries he sustained which prompted the promotion for a new opponent. Although it appeared that Ahmed Fares had made his case to step in for Deiga-Scheck, the promotion managed to sign the first event European and 2016 IMMAF World Champion at Bantamweight category, Abdul Hussein.
The gold medalist has a record of 4 straight wins, all via stoppage with only one fight getting out of the first round. Hussein is also the first fighter of Palestinian origin to win all national, world and European amateur championships. Nawras has to win against the new comer with an impressive record in front of his countrymen to gain the momentum and revive his career to the next level. Two will lock horns at Amman, Jordan on March 2nd, 2018 at King Hussien Sports City. The match is a priority for Jordan since it is the golden opportunity for Nawras to bounce back with a victory or the rise of a new legend from Palestine looms in the horizon.
