MLW sent the following statement regarding a new match added to the February 2 SUPERFIGHT card:
PHILADELPHIA – Following a mid-December nightclub attack, a grudge match has been signed with Kotto Brazil promising an “eye for an eye” approach to his fight with Ricky “El Sicario” Martinez.
MLW today announced a Grudge Match: Kotto Brazil vs. Ricky Martinez (presented by Salina de la Renta) for MLW: SUPERFIGHT at the 2300 Arena. The event is an MLW FUSION TV tapings for beIN SPORTS.
Fans can buy tickets starting at $15 at http://www.MLWgo.com.
It’s been a long road to recovery for Kotto Brazil.
Brazil, a promising top-ranked middleweight was attacked following an altercation at a Miami nightclub in mid-December. The assailant allegedly smashed a champagne flute into the eye of Brazil leaving him with permanent eye damage.
In the weeks following, sources fingered Martinez as the alleged attacker. A hard drive containing the CCTV footage possibly identifying Martinez as the attacker was conveniently damaged beyond repair. With the police investigation at an impasse, league officials were obligated to reinstate Martinez following a brief suspension.
Despite losing vision in one eye, Brazil has been driven to get cleared to compete. MLW’s medical team has given the “Haitian Sensation” the green light to return. Realizing the animosity between the two middleweights could lead to further incidents away from the ring, league officials have agreed to sanction a grudge match between the two in the ring on February 2 in Philadelphia.
Will Ricky Martinez make good on his promise to permanently take out Kotto Brazil or will Kotto’s “eye for an eye” mentality lead to the humble Haitian unleashing hell on his alleged attacker?
