Team Lakay’s Jeremy Pacatiw to make history in Morocco at Brave 14

Jeremy Pacatiw will be competing in his sixth fight in Brave 14 hosted in Tangier, Morocco becoming the fighter with most number of appearances in Brave Combat Federation. The bantamweight fighter from Team Lakay had previously represented Philippines in Bahrain, India, Brazil and Indonesia.

Jeremy had participated in Brave 2, Brave 5, Brave 8, Brave 9 and Brave 12. Pacatiw is also the only fighter from Philippines to be included in the first global mixed martial arts event hosted in the continent of Africa.

Pacatiw will face Keith Lee, the brother of UFC sensation Kevin Lee. Both the fighters made weight during the weigh-ins. Kevin Lee accompanied his brother during the weigh-ins while Jeremy Pacatiw was accompanied by Mark Sangiao, Head Coach of Team Lakay.

Jeremy Pacatiw is returning after two disappointing losses in the promotion and the bout is critical for his career. Training alongside the current champion of the division, Stephen Loman will be an added advantage for the bantamweight sensation. However his opponent had set one of the toughest camps under the guidance of his brother bringing forth world class sparring partners at Xtreme Couture.

The fight night will take place in Tangier, Morocco. Mohammed Shahid, President of Brave Combat Federation has announced that plans are in progress to host Brave Combat Federation in Philippines. A victory for Pacatiw will add momentum for the initiative to Philippines.
