Official Brave Press release below:
Undefeated welterweight sensation, Abdoul Abdouraguimov will compete in Brave 14 hosted in Tangier, Morocco on 18th August. Abdouraguimov is undefeated in his professional career with seven wins and a no-contest. He will face Sidney Wheeler from the United States of America. Wheeler has 8 victories in his 10 appearances. Wheeler had fought for the first time at Brave Combat Federation in Jordan, where he made an impressive split decision victory over Pawel Kielek.
Abdouraguimov is among the latest talent signed by the promotion in 2018. He had signed a multi-fight contract with Brave Combat Federation. Abdouraguimov is also a French national champion of Brazilian jiu-jitsu in the brown belt category. Wheeler at the same time is adept in both wrestling and striking combined with faced paced aggressive style which earned him the reference of ‘the next Brock Lesnar’ in MMA. He was originally set to face Mohammad Fakhreddine during Brave 13 hosted in Belfast, United Kingdom, however the bout did not take place due to the illness suffered by Wheeler during the weight-cut.
Brave 14 will be the first global mixed martial arts event to take place in the continent of Africa. A victory is crucial for both the fighters for their future goals at the Brave Combat Federation. The bout will be featured live on StarSat, VodaCom, Abu Dhabi Sports and Combate. Brave Combat Federation has revealed that the promotion will partner with more platforms to cover the event live in Europe, Asia and North America. The new broadcast partners will be announced by during the second half of July
