Even though the battle with Amir Ahmed at Brave 9 ended in a close split decision loss, Carlsson was able to attract the attention of many individuals with his display of skill and fortitude. This performance has earned him a reputation as a combatant that will press the action and bring spectators out of their seats.
The promotion has recognized his potential and decided to match him up with another explosive up-and-comer in Abdul-Kareem Al-Selwady.
These two exciting athletes will face off at BRAVE 13, the promotion’s first trip to Europe, in Belfast on June 9.
In this interview, Erik “Last Viking” Carlsson spoke with John Hyon Ko about the reasoning behind relocating to Phuket, working with the Hickman Brothers at Tiger Muay Thai, not being interested in a rematch with Amir Ahmed, the keys to victory in his matchup against Abdul-Kareem Al-Selwady, a possible move to featherweight and more.
