The former BRAVE CF Super Welterweight title challenger Ismail Naurdiev is looking to bounce back from a defeat in his promotional debut. The “Austrian Wonder Boy” is taking on Olli Santalahti at BRAVE CF 54 and, despite acknowledging the danger involved in the upcoming match, is certain that he’s superior in every aspect of the match.
"Olli is a tough fighter, I think he is physically strong, but nothing much surprises me, nothing I haven't seen before", Naurdiev said. “Everything, I am the best in everything, better striker, better wrestler and better grappler".
Asked about his game plan for the bout, Naurdiev quoted the legendary “Iron Mike”. “I don't do any game plan anymore because you know, Mike Tyson says everyone has a plan until you get punched in the face. So I just go in and enjoy it”, he finished.
Holding a professional record of 20 wins and only 5 losses, Ismail Naurdiev has 16 finishes in his career and is looking for his first BRAVE CF victory.
BRAVE CF 54 takes place on September 25, in Konin, Poland. The event, held in association with Galana Exclusive Championship, will be headlined by the Lightweight title bout between the champion Amin Ayoub and the challenger Ahmed Amir.
