French knockout specialist Levy Carriel is poised to make his highly anticipated debut for BRAVE Combat Federation next month, marking a historic night for both European and French MMA. The event is scheduled for September 7th, as France becomes the 29th nation to host a BRAVE CF event when the promotion lands in Nantes.
Carriel's inaugural appearance on the global MMA stage will see him face off against the Democratic Republic of Congo's Eliezer Kubanza in a Super Welterweight clash, as part of a fight card co-promoted by the esteemed European brand Hexagone MMA.
Carriel's foundation in Muay Thai and Kickboxing is evident in his fighting style, which leans heavily towards striking. His impressive record speaks volumes, with an unblemished professional standing that boasts three fights, all of which ended in stoppages.
Notably, Carriel's thunderous first-round left hook against Germany's Thorsten Jackobs at Intergra FC 15 in 2021 stands out. Earlier this year, he solidified his reputation with another professional knockout against Brazil's Emerson Silva at FMMAF's Xplosif event in January.
The upcoming bout against Kubanza promises excitement, as both fighters possess exceptional speed and knockout power.
Kubanza has recently garnered attention for his viral knockout victory over Rayani Atmani, setting the stage for an electrifying encounter as he squares off against another knockout artist, Carriel. Both fighters are driven to leave their mark on BRAVE Combat Federation in Nantes, France.
