Swedish fan favorite Nicholas Bryant will once again be back in the MTFL ring. On March 31 he will face rising UK star Ian Gibson – known for his tremendous punching power.

The Swede was originally scheduled to face Alfie Ponting, who was unfortunately forced to withdraw from the bout. However, the change of opponents doesn’t matter at all to the experienced Bryant, who is used to adjusting his fighting to all kinds of challenges.

“It affects me in a way that I have to adapt to an opponent with another style of fighting,” Bryant tells Frontkick. “This guy is boxing a bit more and has a different stance, but as a fighter you are supposed to be able to take on anyone.”

The heavy-hitting Liverpudlian represents 4 Corner Combat Fitness and trains under coach John Gillies. Gibson has an impressive record of 17-1 and is definitely a hard challenge for any fighter.

“The dude is tough and won’t back down. It will be important to establish my distance and rhythm early in the fight. He will of course work on finding his game. The plan is to not let him find it at all.”

Nicholas Bryant is a fan favorite in MTFL

Bryant has become a fan favorite in MTFL, and in Scandinavian Muay Thai in general. In his mind, the promotion is by far the best in the region and has the potential to grow even more as it establishes itself internationally.

“It’s fantastic, easily the best organization in Sweden. There are no other promotions with their network or reach. It will probably not take long until ONE Championship will start to scout and take fighters from MTFL.”

With three gold medals in the Swedish Championships and a WMC European title to his name, the 7-1 Gothenburg fighter is ready to take on anything and anyone.

What do you have planned for 2024?

“Just fight of course, this year I’m going to be as active as previous years, as long life allows it.”
