Two more bouts added to Brave's return to the Kingdom of Bahrain
Brave Combat Federation has been keeping fight fans around the world on the tip of their toes as upcoming bouts are being announced during the week. After confirming two title challenges for Brave 9: The Kingdom of Champions, set for November 17th, promotional officials made another two fights official. In an India x Pakistan showdown, Atif "Little Hawk" Mohammad will face Haider "Giant" Farman in a Men's Strawweight bout (up to 51,7 kg.). In the Bantamweight division, Bahrain's Hamza Kooheji battles Mohammad Farhad, from India, in a duel that could have title implications.
Both India's "Little Hawk" and Pakistan's "Giant" are coming off losses inside the Brave cage, coincidentally against the same opponent: Filipino contender Jomar Pa-ac, who beat Farman during Brave 2: Dynasty, last December, and topped Mohammad at Abu Dhabi's Brave 4.
Local star Kooheji, on the other hand, is looking to get his third straight win at home. He was one of the stars in Brave's first two shows, both in Bahrain, but hasn't fought since. He will try to improve to 6-1 in his professional career against India's Mohammad Farhad, who's also on two wins for Brave and is the owner of the fastest-ever KO in promotional history: he floored Irfan Khan in mere 40 seconds during Brave 5: Go For Glory.
Brave 9: The Kingdom of Champions will be the first event held in Bahrain this year. During 2017, Brave Combat Federation expanded its operations, holding groundbreaking events in Brazil (twice), Mexico, Kazakhstan, India and the United Arab Emirates. Brave 9 will be the culmination of the International Combat Week, alongside the IMMAF World Championships under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa.
