Mohammad Fakhreddine has sent a stark warning to his opponent Thiago Vieira ahead of their Brave 1 showdown in two weeks.
Vieira had previously shown respect to “The Latest”, but stated his intention to finish the fight early, as he has done to all his other eight opponents.
This enraged Fakhreddine, who launched an impassioned response to Vieria’s confident claims, and made the undefeated Brazilian a promise ahead of their main event battle in Bahrain.
“I promise you one thing – I am like no one you have faced before. You can take that crazy idea out of your head that you’re going to finish me quickly, you might be aggressive and you might be good, but I am just as aggressive and just as good. I have heavy hands as well and would love to see you make a mistake in this fight – I guess that is enough said for now.”
Fakhreddine’s response came in as a comment on Brave Combat Federation’s article on Facebook which quoted Vieira’s statement:
Fakhreddine has only ever been finished once, by submission, but he avenged that defeat and has won every other fight.
He will be confident that perhaps he has faced tougher opposition than the Brazilian, who has ran straight through all eight of his opponents so far.
“Monstro” Vieria is certainly a massive danger to Fakhreddine’s legacy considering his imposing size, nasty kicks and killer instinct.
However “The Latest” is also a killer in that cage, with excellent boxing and concussive, one-shot knockout power, which is what makes the clash such a mouth-watering main event.
Brave 1 takes place at Khalifa Sports City, Isa Town, Bahrain and features a host of mouth-watering clashes involving international and home grown talent from the middle-east – all looking to make a statement in this prestigious new promotion.
