Liverpool’s Bryan Creighton is known in the local stage as “The Big Bad Wolf” for his aggressiveness and never back down style. He hopes to take this form into the international stage as he makes his Brave Combat Federation debut against Andy Young at Brave 13: Europe Evolution, set for June 9th, in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
The veteran Flyweight will have a slot on the main card, and he hopes to entertain the crowd with his walk-out and his fighting style, but guarantees the focus is on extending his win streak to four against a tough Young.
“I had some tough times in my career but I’m back. Mentally and physically I’m better than ever before. I’ve been able to put together a nice win streak and the fans can expect a lot of showmanship, a good, entertaining fight and a win for me. I respect Andy Young but I’m going to unleash “The Big Bad Wolf” on him”, warns Bryan.
Even though he hails from Liverpool, which is somewhat near Belfast, he won’t have the home court advantage, as he will be facing a Northern Ireland native. However, Creighton believes he has the edge over Young when comparing their fighting styles.
“I know he likes to entertain the crowd too and I’m happy with that. I want to wait and see if he’ll stand up with me. Everyone that comes up against me says they’re going to stand with me, but once I get my hands going that gameplan goes out the window. I’m aggressive, entertaining, I like to use my walk-out to entertain the crowd as well, using my wolf mask. I always say a happy warrior is a clever warrior”, who has his eyes on the main event.
“I’m a Bantamweight as well so I’ve got my eyes on the main event for my own reasons. I hope to watch a great fight between the champion Stephen Loman and the challenger Frans Mlambo”, says the Englishman.
Brave 13 marks the first time Brave Combat Federation enters into European territory. Northern Ireland will become the ninth country to host a Brave show after Bahrain, Brazil, United Arab Emirates, India, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Jordan, and Indonesia.
