BRAVE Combat Federation last night confirmed that Abdul Kareem Al Selwady is set to face Charlie Leary in Jordan at Brave 10: The Kingdom Rises on March 2 at the Prince Hamzah Sports Hall in Amman.
Leary, who fights out of Crossface MMA, had accepted the challenge thrown out by Kareem.
After an inspiring performance which ended up as the fight of the night at Brave 4: Unstoppable against Ottman Azaitar, which he lost, Leary bounced back with an empowering comeback against Daniele Scatizzi from Straight Blast Gym Ireland at Brave 9: The Kingdom of Champions.
The multi-title winner from England made his ambitions clear for a rematch against Azaitar, who is the current lightweight champion, at Brave Combat Federation.
Al Selwady has eight victories out of his nine appearances while Leary, who is a veteran in England, has been victorious 14 times out of his 22 appearances.
Currently riding a four-fight win streak and undefeated at Brave, Al Selwady is a strong adversary with hometown support.
The former three-time British champion will fight a decisive bout that will determine the future of the lightweight division of Brave Combat Federation.
