Carl “The Bomber” Booth, 29, of Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England is looking to extend his victorious run. Coming off a two-win streak in BRAVE Combat Federation, he is set to face Leonardo “Macarrão” Mafra Texeira, 30, of Balneário Camboriú, Catarina, Brazil at “BRAVE CF 35.”
BRAVE CF will hold “BRAVE CF 35” in Balneário Camboriú. The bout between Booth and Texeira will be in the super lightweight division.
Not even the adverse conditions of Booth’s next challenge seem to slow down his confidence. He guaranteed he will win at “BRAVE CF 35″ by using Mafra’s home field advantage as motivation and make a case for a potential world title match up next.
“I’m looking forward to my fight next month with the explosive Leonardo Mafra,” Booth said. “I can’t wait to massacre him in front of his home crowd and solidify myself as a number one contender for the BRAVE CF world title.”
With a professional record of 9 wins and 3 losses, Booth is no stranger to BRAVE CF title bouts. On August 12, 2017, he competed for the inaugural BRAVE CF Welterweight World Championship title but he lost to Carlston “Mocambique” Harris, 32, of Skeldon, Guyana.
Booth will make his super lightweight debut at “BRAVE CF 35.” He is coming out of two consecutive BRAVE CF wins over Dino “The Lion” Bagattin, 38, of Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa and Hayder “Hulk” Hassan, 37, of the United States.
“BRAVE CF 35” marks Mafra’s third bout in BRAVE CF. Born and raised in Balneário Camboriú, he will be making a very special homecoming bout as he has not fought at home since 2014.
Mafra has been competing professionally since 2011. Before joining BRAVE CF, he competed in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Pancrase and Immortal Fighting Championship, among others.
When Mafra made his BRAVE CF debut at “BRAVE 12: KHK Legacy” in Jakarta, Indonesia on May 11, 2018, he was knocked out by Gadzhimusa “Deadshot” Gaziev, 27, of Makhachkala, Dagestan, Russia. The Brazilian fighter bounced back by defeating Djamil “Dynamite” Chan, 29, of Rotterdam, Netherlands via unanimous decision at “BRAVE CF 25” in Belo Horizonte, Brazil on August 30, 2019.
