It’s going to be bombs away in the highly anticipated match at Brave 2: Dynasty between Gadzhimusa “Deadshot” Gaziev (7-1) and Carl “The bomber” Booth (6-1).
Both welterweights carry that fight-ending punching power and both fancy their chances of a knockout victory.
The man from England, Booth, has lived up to his nickname so far in his career notching some impressive knockouts along the way.
Yet Gaziev believes that this nickname will become quite ironic on fight night, as the Dagestani predicts he will be dishing out the bombs.
He said: “There is no doubt that I will win. What is more interesting is Carl’s nickname, which is BOMBER. Sounds pretty funny, because he will receive a bombing of my hands while he’s lying on the ground.”
A confident Gaziev believes he can bomb the Booth and his last fight would suggest he is more than capable of doing so.
‘Deadshot’ landed a telling bomb upon the face of Thiago Vieira at Brave 1 and shocked the world with a first round knockout victory over the Brazilian.
Yet Nottingham’s Booth is on a five fight winning streak and has finished five out of his six victims impressively, including Lebanon’s Jarrah Al Silawi after 39 seconds.
So both fighters’ careers are on an upward trajectory and this a fascinating, crossroads bout for the epic Brave 2 card, which will be headlined by the world title fight between Masio Fullen and Alan Omer.
Gaziev will be looking to make it two wins in two fights for Brave and insists that Booth will meet the same fate as his previous opponent.
He added: “My last fight was a knockout for Brave Combat Federation and I expect a similar result in this fight. I am absolutely ready for Carl Booth, I’ve been fighting for five years and training mixed martial arts for 16 years so you can be sure I’m ready for this and it’s my time.”
