Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship will hold weigh-ins today in anticipation of tomorrow night’s BKFC 19 fight card, live from the the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, FL and broadcast on FITE.TV and the BKFC TV app.
In one of combat sports most widely viewed fights in 2019, Paige VanZant defeated Rachael Ostovich via arm bar submission on January 19, 2019 at UFC Fight Night in Brooklyn, NY. Now they will rematch….without gloves.
In the main event at ‘KnuckleMania’ on February 5, 2021, VanZant made her highly anticipated BKFC debut, competing valiantly in a very hard-fought decision loss to Britain Hart while Ostovich will be making her bare-knuckle debut against VanZant.
Just added to this already amazing event is a ‘Platform Showdown’ featuring three influencer matchups on the main card of BKFC-19 as Tik-Tok, You-Tube and Hip-Hop stars will battle in five-round boxing exhibitions.
Headlining the ‘Platform Showdown’, Hip-Hop superstar Blue Face clashes with rival Tik-Tok star Austin Sprinz. Blue Face is celebrating the release of his viral sensation single, ‘Respect My Cryppin’ featuring Snoop Dogg, the video for which has been viewed over 14M times on Youtube. Trujillo is among the most popular Tik-Tok stars with over 3M followers.
Also featured on the ‘Platform Showdown’, Evil Hero will battle fellow Tik-Tok star Dakota Olave. Additionally, Tik-Tok, You-Tube and social media influencer, DK Moneyy will battle Nick Ireland of the famed Ireland Boys.
