Jenel Lausa draws new opponent for BRAVE CF 47


BRAVE CF has announced that Rahmatullah Yousufzai of Afghanistan has withdrawn from his three-round flyweight contest against Jenel “The Demolition Man” Lausa of the Philippines at BRAVE CF 47: Asian Domination, which takes place on Thursday. 

Taking Yousufzai’s place in the bout is Ryskulbek Ibraimov. He was originally scheduled to face Kazakhstan’s Asu Almabaev on the same card.

According to multiple sources closely monitoring the situation, both Yousufzai and Ibraimov contracted COVID-19. Both have been isolated, while the fight league has assured that all the fighters competing in the card have not been in contact with the two.

The 29-year-old dynamo is one of the top flyweights to emerge from Kyrgyzstan. Possessing an 18-8 slate with six submissions and three knockouts, he has steamrolled through the competition in his home country.

The well-rounded Aikol Manas representative will face a tough challenge as he takes on Lausa.

Born and raised in Iloilo, Philippines, Lausa holds a professional record of 7-5 with two knockout wins and two by way of submission. He has a wealth of fight experience under various organizations on his resumé. He has shared the cage with some of the best mixed martial artists in Asia, including Ernesto Montilla Jr., Crisanto Pitpitunge, Yao Zhikui and Ulka Sasaki.

Apart from mixed martial arts, Lausa likewise made his mark inside the boxing ring, owning a perfect 10-0-1 standing with six knockouts. He captured the Philippine Boxing Federation Super Bantamweight Championship in 2016 and then clinched the Global Boxing Organization Asia-Pacific Super Featherweight Title three years later.
