On Thursday, April, Brave CF hosted Brave CF 50: Al-Silawi vs. Naurdiev from the Arad Fort in Bahrain.
In the night’s main event, Jarrah Al-Silawi defended his super welterweight title against promotional newcomer Ismail Naurdiev.
Gold was also supposed to be on the line in the co-main event as current middleweight champion Mohammad Fakhreddine looked to become the first two-division titleholder as he squared off with Mohamed Said Maalem for the light heavyweight title. However, Fakhreddine suffered an illness and the bout was postponed.
