BRACE 42 returns to the nation’s capital with the biggest card to date.

Headlining the event is young gun Jamie Mullarkey who at just 21 years of age has established himself as one of the best featherweights down under. The central coast local has racked up a professional record of 8-1 and is the reigning BRACE featherweight champion. Standing in his way is Luke Catubig a Filipino striker who has a penance for big first round knock outs.

In the co-main event Rick Alchin and Tristan Murphy have been matched-up in what is poised to be a fight of the night. These two mixed martial artists are the epitome of well rounded and will be ready to put on an explosive fight for the fans. Alchin is coming off a first round knock out of James Klingner whilst Murphy is coming off an impressive second round submission against Tom Kingston. Both of these guys will be ready to put it all on the line to progress in the BRACE welterweight tournament.

BRACE CEO Kya Pate said, “I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am for this next BRACE Canberra card. We have some of the very best guys from around the country descending on the nations capital ready to put on a show for the fight fans. I expect this event to be our best yet. BRACE42 is off the hook. Do not miss this event!”
