Seef District, Bahrain – After Middleweight world champion Mohammad Fakhreddine spoke out about the possibility of facing Mohamed Said Maalem for the vacant BRAVE CF Light Heavyweight title, other fighters have stepped up and put their names in the hat for an eventual title fight.
Swedish phenom Anton Turkalj, who has won twice in two BRAVE CF bouts, commented on social media about going for the title, rejecting the idea of Fakhreddine and Said Maalem fighting for the belt. Turkalj said he would even face both men in the same night and would bet his fight purse that he would come out victorious.
Later, Anton used his own profile to put up a montage of him holding the BRAVE CF title as if he was Captain America – using the belt as his shield.
Todd Stoute, on the other hand, had already expressed his desire for a rematch against Said Maalem. ”Black Hulk” lost to Mohamed but has bounced back with a win against Cristian Constantinov.
Currently ranked as the number one Heavyweight and number two Light Heavyweight in Canada, Stoute believes he deserves a title shot after impressing in all of his three BRAVE CF contests, with one loss and two wins.
After Fakhreddine’s call-out of Said Maalem, Todd went on to say the title shot was his, and claimed he would be interested in fighting the Middleweight champ for the vacant Light Heavyweight world title as well.
