Louis Glismann is an inspiration to many troubled children in his city of Copenhagen, but he has a side of him that the children do not know about, one that revels in choking people unconscious. As he looks to make a splash in BRAVE CF’s Welterweight division, ‘’Spartacus’’ is set to draw inspiration from his students on the road to gold.
He will take on Abdoul Abdouraguimov in the co-main event of BRAVE CF 44, which takes place in Bahrain, on November 5th, and hopes a win can fast-track him to a title shot against reigning champion Jarrah Al-Silawi.
‘’I think it will be a very fun fight, I’ve watched his fights and I thought it could be a really good fight, and it could definitely be a title fight. I actually think the winner should get a title shot’’, said Glismann, who’s coming off a monumental win against Henri Lintula on his BRAVE CF debut.
Helping troubled kids who come from poverty is his way of giving back to the community. While his guidance keeps the children inspired, what keeps Louis grounded is much more violent: fighting in a top global MMA promotion.
"I along with a few other fighters from my gym love working with the children, we focus on giving good values back to the kids and keeping them away from trouble and drugs. We engage them with sports, give them good food, and good surrounding of people who could be inspirational to them," he says about his social work
The 29-year-old, who has a degree in social education, says his job as a social worker gives him an advantage in his fighting career because he uses it as a motivator to the kids to show them the good that he could do. "I want to be an inspiration for the next generation."
After his debut loss, he has been on a hot winning streak of seven wins. He certainly has the best platform to elevate himself to become an even bigger inspiration as he takes on Abdouraguimov. If he passes this upcoming test, the sky's the limit for ‘’Spartacus’’ and the people that look up to him.
