John Cris Corton will be the first Team Lakay fighter to compete since the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic broke out worldwide.
The 27-year-old fighter out of La Trinidad, Benguet has been booked to face debuting Russian Magomed Idrisov on Thursday, September 17 during BRAVE CF 41.
The bantamweight bout takes place in Bahrain.
Corton is 6-5 in his prizefighting career but is currently on a two-bout skid, bowing via submission to Abdul Hussein back in March of 2019 and by way of unanimous decision against Zia Mashwani last October.
His last win was a dominant decision victory against Hussain Maki during Brave CF 16.
Though making his debut in the pro scene, Idrisov has amassed a 9-3 record in amateur league IMMAF.
