Last week at their annual convention in Las Vegas, NV, the Association of Boxing Commissions (ABC) voted to approve unified rules for bare knuckle fighting in the United States. The vote opens the door for numerous additional states to host future Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) events.
Said David Feldman, President and Founder of BKFC, “This is a pivotal moment in the growth of bare knuckle fighting in the United States. Our growth in the first five years of the promotion has been extraordinary and this will heighten our ascent in this country. It’s a great day for BKFC fans in the United States.”
This week, BKFC presents BKFC-48 on Friday, August 11 in Albuquerque, New Mexico headlined by a sensational main event with local all-action attraction, #2 ranked John ‘The Magician’ Dodson, (2-0), battling #1 ranked JR ‘The Lion’ Ridge, (3-1), of Tampa, FL for the first ever BKFC Flyweight World Championship. Co-featured is the highly anticipated clash between Actor and Social Media Influencer Bryce Hall and BKFC fan favorite Gee ‘The Cutman’ Perez, (3-0). The event emanates from the famed Tingley Coliseum in Albuquerque, site of KnuckleMania 3 this past February in front of a sold-out crowd of over 8,000 fans.
On Friday, August 25, BKFC returns to South Florida with BKFC-49 headlined by the BKFC Welterweight World Championship between #1 Ranked Gorjan ‘GoGo’ Slaveski, (5-0), of Macedonia now residing in South Florida and #4 Ranked ‘Gypsy’ Jake Lindsey, (4-0), of Manhattan, Kansas from Arnold Hall at the Miami Dade Fairgrounds.
BKFC will launch the BKFC Prospect Series on Thursday, August 24 the night before BKFC-49 at the same venue.
