Jose “Shorty” Torres made a difficult decision after losing his father a little more than a month ago. He decided to fight on and face Marcel Adur for the inaugural BRAVE CF Flyweight title, in a bout that was supposed to take place this Friday, November 15th, at BRAVE CF 29, the organization’s biggest event of the year. However, the strain of the tragedy was too much to handle and Torres surprised the hundreds of people assembled at the Oasis Mall by pulling out of the fight with Adur.
Afterward, Adur gave his condolences once again to “Shorty”, but did say he would rather have heard the news earlier, as he had already made weight. Marcel continued by saying he would like to fight as soon as possible for the belt.
