BRAVE CF Super Welterweight sensation Levy Carriel set the MMA world abuzz last Thursday with an extraordinary knockout, instantly becoming a top contender for the 2023 Knockout of the Year. The electrifying moment unfolded at BRAVE CF 74, held in Nantes, France, as Carriel unleashed his striking prowess in dramatic fashion.
Facing off against the initially scheduled opponent Eliezer Kubanza, Carriel's performance took an unexpected turn when Kubanza encountered visa issues and had to withdraw on short notice. Stepping up to the challenge was the courageous Mathieu Rakotondrazanany, turning the matchup into a Catchweight bout at 81kg.
Upon delivering a spectacular knockout that left Rakotondrazanany unconscious, Carriel swiftly shifted into promoter mode. In a bold move, he immediately issued a challenge to Eliezer Kubanza, showcasing his readiness to take on the Super Welterweight division's best.
"Kubanza, no problem! I come for the belt! I'm ready to fight him now!" exclaimed Carriel in the immediate aftermath of his unforgettable performance. His adrenaline still pumping, Carriel made it clear that he aimed to make a statement at BRAVE CF's inaugural event in France.
Following the event, Eliezer Kubanza himself took to the online platform to express his lack of awe at Carriel's performance. He boldly declared his intentions to establish himself as "the king of the jungle" when he faces Carriel inside the cage.
"Levy, I am not impressed at all, and when I'm locked in there with you, you are going to understand who the king of the jungle is. I'll expose and stop you," stated Kubanza confidently. Kubanza, known for his remarkable athleticism, had previously made waves with a sensational knockout victory at BRAVE CF 72, marking his promotional debut with the most globally recognized MMA organization.
The exchange between Carriel and Kubanza escalated further, with Carriel responding to Kubanza's comments with strong language. Kubanza, in a playful yet taunting gesture, replied with an emoji of a chicken. The heated exchange between the two fighters has set the stage for what promises to be a colossal showdown in the Super Welterweight division in the final quarter of the year.
As the anticipation builds for this impending clash, MMA fans around the world eagerly await the moment when these two formidable fighters will finally share the cage, setting the stage for an epic battle in the Super Welterweight ranks.
