At Brave 20, Kantaraj will face Jalal Al Daaja from Jordan who is also a national kickboxing gold medalist.
The bout is one of the most crucial in the career of the undefeated Indian fighter who has a professional record of 10-0-0, which is to date the best in Indian MMA.
For the first time, Kantaraj will enter a fight as an underdog as Al Daaja is currently having a dominant run in Brave Combat Federation defeating two of the emerging prospects from Team Lakay which is recognised as one among the finest fight teams in Asia.
Al Daaja has set the camp alongside the reigning welterweight world champion of the promotion, Jarrah Al Selawe, Hashem Arkhaga, Nawras Abzakh and Ali Qaisi.
