Seef District, Bahrain – 27 January 2021
It took less than 24 hours for Muhammed Mokaev’s challenge to reach Abdul Hussein. And the challenge sounded like music to Hussein’s ears. The Finnish Flyweight took the proposal of Mokaev very seriously and, judging by his comments, is about to hit the gym in order to get ready for the clash of two world champions in the amateur ranks.
Muhammad Mokaev, the 23-0 amateur superstar and 4-0 pro star had previously announced his intention to drop down to Flyweight following total domination at Bantamweight and took on social media to let fans around the world know what was his next intended step.
“I believe this is the number one fight in the BRAVE CF Flyweight Division. The best fight outside of the tournament”, “The Punisher” said, mentioning the ongoing Flyweight World Title Tournament to decide the inaugural BRAVE CF Flyweight champion.
Hussein not only gave his approval to the match-up, but in fact raised the stakes even more. “This fight is not only gonna determine the top Flyweight in BRAVE CF but in the whole world. This is a challenge that I’ve lived for and I’m gonna bring the best version of myself”, he stated.
“Inshallah, we’ll get the win”, he continued. “The date will be announced soon”, ”ABBA” concluded, returning the ball to Mokaev’s court, and adding pressure to BRAVE CF officials in order to confirm the highly-anticipated contest.
With a professional record of seven wins and only a single loss, Abdul Hussein is currently on a three-win streak under BRAVE Combat Federation’s banner. As his counterpart Mokaev, Hussein is also an IMMAF World Champion, having finished his amateur career with a perfect record of 10 wins and no losses.
