What do you know about the Carrera Formula One title fight?
Posted November 04, 2018 07:23:38 When you think of a great Brazilian fighter, you may think of the late Rua Paulo da Silva, or the fierce striker Ricardo Carrera.
In his prime, Carrera was the best pound-for-pound fighter in Brazil, winning the Intercontinental Championship, the Inter-continental title, and the World Boxing Association (WBA) world title.
Carrera also held the WBC and WBO titles.
But what do you really know about Carrera?
How much did he fight?
And what were his wins?
Now that the fight between Carrera and undefeated world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. is finally coming to an end, we take a look at his life and career.
Carrera started boxing in 1964 when he was 13 years old, fighting at the local school in Sao Paulo.
He was a very humble kid who would often take his father’s hand in the ring and ask him to beat the other guy.
He loved it, and it was a part of his life until the age of 14.
But by then, he was already getting into trouble.
He got into fights with the police, and he was arrested by the police for being drunk.
After losing his father to cancer, Carrae decided to fight for a living and he fought in a few different promotions.
He started with the famous TUF: Brazil, which was a reality show show.
He ended up on the big screen with UFC: Brazil in 2013, but he didn’t make it past the first round.
The first time he was seen on the UFC: Fight Night was in 2016, where he lost to a young prospect named Joao Carvalho.
Carvalha got away with a very simple elbow on Carrera’s chin, which caused Carrera to bleed heavily and the bout was eventually stopped due to blood loss.
But the next time Carrera fought, he faced a much different prospect.
This time, Carrey was in the main event of UFC: The Ultimate Fighter 19.
Carrey lost his first fight to Michael Bisping, who was the youngest UFC champion.
Carreia was a champion in his second fight, against Jose Aldo.
In the end, Carrea was stopped with a knee in the first, but his next opponent was a fighter who had won a title by knockout before.
He was the only fighter to beat Aldo and win the belt.
After his victory, he received a phone call from UFC President Dana White saying, “We can’t wait for you to fight Jose Alda,” but the Brazilian was too upset to fight.
The UFC eventually pulled the fight, and a few months later, Carrecia got a rematch against the now undefeated Aldo, who came back from a two-fight losing streak to win his first ever fight.
