“The Russian Hammer” Artem Lobov hasn’t been shy in challenging a few of boxing’s top names, as he has asked BRAVE Combat Federation to make his dream fight happen. Initially, Amir Khan was the sole focus for Lobov, who will be in attendance at BRAVE 24: London, a historic show set to connect the top of the MMA world with the highest level of influencers, celebrities, politicians and businessmen.
Artem is expected to seek a meeting with BRAVE CF president Mohammed Shahid during the event, as Shahid himself has said that he would like to make Lobov vs Khan happen. The bout was targeted by Lobov’s coach John Kavanagh for November, during the International Combat Week, the largest combat sports festival in Asia, hosted by BRAVE CF.
Lobov also wanted to meet Khan at BRAVE 24: London, but the champion won’t be attending the show anymore as he has urgent matters to attend to on July 25th, which means Artem has also called out other top boxers, namely Adrien Broner and Manny Pacquiao.
Artem tweeted that he wanted to fight for BRAVE CF, and called on the promotion to find him a fight against Khan, Broner or Pacquiao, claiming that when he fights “the world is watching”.
If Lobov is looking to sign on to fight for BRAVE Combat Federation, BRAVE 24: London is certainly the place to be, as the promotion has announced some of the biggest names in combat sports for the UK and beyond will be attending the show, as Brad Pickett and Chris Eubank Jr. possible targets for “The Russian Hammer”, aside from Aaron Chalmers, Paul Daley, Jimi Manuwa, Dan Hardy, Chris Eubank Sr. All of them will be attending BRAVE 24.
