Brave 8 open workouts light up Curitiba as Carl Booth brings in ‘special guests’
Brave 8: The Rise of Champions will take place in Curitiba, on August 12th, but two days before the event, the excitement building in the MMA-crazed city was palpable. Hundreds of hardcore fans attended the official open workouts featuring some of the show’s biggest stars and cage announcer, the voice of Brave, Carlos Kremer.
While the main event title contender Klidson Abreu received the greatest applaud from the crowd, it was Englishman Carl Booth that made sure local fans will cheer for him as he battles Mohammad Fakhreddine in the co-main event.
“Bomber” enchanted the crowd with his deadly combinations and great ground game, but when he “called out” three kids from the crowd for a little training, the rest of the fans went crazy for Booth.
“It was a bit of fun, really. I saw all those fighters just hitting mitts and not really looking at the fans, so I wanted to something different, maybe get them on my side. Hopefully I’ll have Brazil’s support come fight night”, said Booth after training was done.
The Englishman’s strategy seems to have paid off as fans stopped him on his way back to take pictures and “face-offs”, something that has delighted Booth.
“It’s awesome to see everyone’s reaction. The Brazilian are very passionate people and it’s no different in MMA. I hope to see that passion on Saturday night”.
On August 12th, Brave lands in Curitiba for Brave 8: The Rise of Champions. While there, the promotion will crown two new champions. Local hero Klidson Abreu battles undefeated prospect Timo Feucht for the Light Heavyweight title. On the co-main event, Brave’s biggest stars will collide as Lebanon’s Mohammad Fakhreddine and Englishman Carl Booth face off for Brave’s Welterweight World Title. In November, the promotion goes back to Bahrain in great style as Brave rounds off the International Combat Week with a stacked card of its own alongside the IMMAF World Championships.
