Boxing legend Amir “King” Khan, 32, will renew his love for mixed martial arts on July 25, 2019 when he once again will attend a Brave Combat Federation event. He will be one of the exclusive guests for “Brave 24: London,” a groundbreaking, invite-only event set to change the landscape of martial arts in Europe.
Khan is an Olympic Silver medalist and a former unified light-welterweight world champion in boxing. He is no stranger to Brave CF as he has been to a show before when the Bahrain-based MMA promotion organized a show for the first time in British soil on June 9, 2018 at “Brave 13: European Evolution” at the SSE Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
At “Brave 13: European Evolution,” Khan witnessed the victorious debut of Cian “The Warrior” Cowley, 25, of Dublin, Ireland and the successful defense of reigning Brave CF Bantamweight World Champion Stephen “The Sniper” Loman, 23, of the Philippines. Training out of Team Lakay in Baguio City, Philippines, the Filipino champ defended his title from Frans “The Black Mamba” Mlambo, 28, of Dublin.
Brave CF has close bonds with Khan as he visited the Kingdom of Bahrain and spoken to His Highness Shaikh Khaled bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the founder and visionary of Brave CF. The British boxer was impressed with Shaikh Khaled’s dedication and hard work towards the development of the sport.
“His initiatives support the sport and make it possible to host major sporting events that develop talented athletes, support culture and the economy of the hosting city,” Khan said of the Brave CF founder. “The initiative from the Kingdom is changing the sport of MMA around the world.”
The British icon is just the first on an extensive list of A-List guests scheduled to soak in a truly unforgettable experience as “Brave 24: London” will look to connect the highest level of celebrities, influencers, politicians, and businessmen to mixed martial arts. The goal is to empower the sport and allow it to grow in the eyes of a totally different and new audience, thus elevating the exposure of London MMA to a never-before-seen level.
