On December 22, 2018, Mounir made his Brave CF debut at “Brave 20” at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium in Hyderabad, India. He defeated John “Trouble” Brewin, 24, of Auckland, New Zealand via unanimous decision.
On April 19, 2019, Mounir and Martinez battled it out in the lightweight division at “Brave 23: Pride and Honor,” which took place at the Martyr Rashid Al-Ziyoud Hall Boxing Arena in Amman, Jordan. The Paraguayan-Canadian contender went for a low kick in the first round.
Although accidental, the kick was illegal. Mounir was unable to continue so the bout was declared a No Contest.
