The BRAVE CF 70 make-or-break Bantamweight duel between Izzedine Al-Derbani and Eduardo Mora is shaping up to be an epic fight, with the two athletes going at it on social media before of their fight on April 23rd in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Mora, Colombia's wonderkid, shared a picture of himself standing in a cave on the rocky Colombian coast with the caption: "Ready, now to secure the victory." Colombia vs. Jordan, April 23rd, BRAVE CF 70."

Al-Derbani praised his impending opponent's post, calling it a "nice view," to which Mora replied, "I'll have a better one when I crush you."

“You are excited now, do not say words, it will cost you a lot. You will lose many of your bones in this fight, my dear. If you are a solid fighter, you will return to fighting after a year, at least. If not, you will retire.” The Jordanian superstar added.

On his BRAVE CF debut last year, former Desert Force Featherweight interim champion Al-Derbani suffered his first loss in six fights, falling to Jose Torres at BRAVE CF 65. Eduardo Mora has hit rock bottom after losing back-to-back matches to South Africans Nkosi Ndebele and Hamza Kooheji. Mora was unbeaten before to those defeats, with five wins dating back to 2018.

With BRAVE CF Colombia on the horizon this year, the three-time Amateur Colombian champion will need to earn a significant win to book his seat on that card and keep his spot in the BRAVE CF Bantamweight stable.
