When BRAVE CF Bantamweight champion Stephen Loman (12-2) faces Elias Boudegzdame (15-5) in the main event of Brave 22: Storm of Warriors on Friday, March 15, he will be fighting for more than the pride he feels for his country.
The 27-year-old Baguio-native will fight to honor his family.
Last week, one of Loman’s uncles passed away after falling victim to a hit and run incident, during the closing stages of his nephew’s grueling training camp.
Though grieving, Loman remains focused on the task ahead. Still, his teammates at Team Lakay can sense his sadness and have expressed their support for him.
With this, “The Sniper” will dedicate the fight to his uncle.
His uncle was one of Loman’s biggest supporters, and was looking forward to watching his nephew rise to the occasion once again, but this time as a member of the live audience.
In order to appease his family’s grief, half of them have stayed behind in Baguio City, also so as not to distract Loman and to keep him focused on the tough task ahead.
And Loman will do everything he can to give honor to his uncle.
