Loman retains Bantamweight title after five tough rounds


By Robert Jones

Brave 13 concluded at the SSE Arena, Belfast on Saturday night with Team Lackay's Stephen Loman from the Philippines defending the championship title against Frans Mlambo from SBG Ireland.

In the nail-biting five-round bout, Loman in the end won the fight by a unanimous decision to retain his Bantamweight crown.

The co-main fight went the distance when local star, Stormin' Norman Parke from Bushmills defeated rival Myles Price from the Republic of Ireland.

The fight was the Brave Combat debut for Parke and a rematch of the fighters' first encounter, which happened back in 2010.

Earlier in the night, The 'Notorious' Conor McGregor made a big entrance to the SSE Arena to celebrate with SBG Ireland team-mate, Cian Cowley after his stunning defeat of Daniel Olejniczak in the first fight on the main card.
