Harold Banario (4-1) will have to deal with a last-minute change in his plans for Brave 22: Storm of Warriors, set for March 15th, in Manila, Philippines.
The younger brother of Honorio Banario was initially scheduled to take on Gamzat Magomedov (3-1), but the Russian powerhouse has been forced to pull out due to undisclosed reasons and will be replaced by Ariel Oliveros (3-3).
Banario, who will be making his promotional debut, was set for his first fight with Brave CF back in December of last year but was forced to pull out himself. Now he will take on a dangerous opponent in his countryman.
Oliveros will become the 11th Filipino fighter in the promotion’s first trip to Manila.
He is coming off a tough submission loss in his Brave debut, as he was forced to tap from a ninja choke applied by Haider Farman, at Brave 17, in Lahore, Pakistan. Ariel will look for his first Brave victory in front of his home crowd.
Meanwhile, Gamzat Magomedov’s comeback fight for Brave Combat Federation will have to wait.
Brave CF 22 will be headlined by a title fight between defending Bantamweight World champion and local hero Stephen Loman and challenger Elias Boudegzdame.
