Erko Jun is back! Light Heavyweight superstar leads announcements for BRAVE CF Slovenia event
Feb 02, 2024
BRAVE Combat Federation hosted, in association with WFC, the Slovenia Press Conference to launch the partnership between the two organizations, as well as to officially announce two BRAVE CF events taking place in Ljubljana this year – on April 20 and October 19. BRAVE CF president Mohammed Shahid was joined by WFC president Zlatko Mahic and esteemed guests such as IMMAF president Kerrith Brown and Serbia MMA Federation president Luka Nikolic.
During the press conference, BRAVE CF 81 was announced to take place on April 20, with several fighters confirmed for action. Most notably, the curtain-raiser for 2024 at BRAVE CF will count with the return of Erko Jun. The Light Heavyweight superstar last fought for BRAVE CF in Slovenia and will now get back to action in search of a 205-pound world title shot.
Also confirmed for action at BRAVE CF 81 is one of the best up-and-coming Heavyweights in Europe, as Pavel Dailidko will look to book a world title shot of his own following a historic campaign in 2023 – he became the first BRAVE CF fighter to record three KO victories on the same calendar year.
Other familiar faces to return to action are that of David Forster, who won the Fight of The Year for BRAVE CF in 2023 when he pushed Mohsen Mohammedseifi to the limit at BRAVE CF 79, and Monika Kucinic, who had choice words for Sabrina de Sousa, the best amateur of all time, also signed under BRAVE CF.
Finally, Haris Aksalic will also be in action once again, following a thunderous BRAVE CF debut, when the former boxing champion dismantled his opponent in the first round.
BRAVE CF 81 takes place in association with leading regional promotion WFC, at the Hala Tivoli, on April 20, in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
