Gorjan Slaveski Has Three Possible Foes for BKFC Title Fight
Gorjan Slaveski could fight one of three men for BKFC gold.
David Feldman is the figurehead of BKFC and recently offered insights into Slaveski winning the BKFC 35 title eliminator and how his next opponent is not necessarily a hundred percent clear.
Feldman broke the news to me in a recent interview following BKFC’s kickoff event of 2023.
Feldman stated that BKFC 35's Gorjan Slaveski will next fight for the welterweight title in June vs either Luis Palomino or the winner of Connor Tierney vs Jake Lindsey for 165 lb gold if Palomino chooses to vacate

The excerpt quoted below is what the BKFC figurehead had to say about the next title clash at 165 pounds.
Gorjan Slaveski recently winning a title eliminator at BKFC 35 and three possible opponents for Gogo in his welterweight championship fight
“Well, we’ll see what happens with Luis (Palmino). We’re going to see if he wants to keep the ’65 (belt) or give up the ’65. We would do the winner of Connor Tierney and Jake Lindsey versus Gogo (Gorjan Slaveski) for the 165-pound championship. I’ll know that any day. But it’s either going to be probably a June event for Gogo versus Luis. Or if he decides to give up the 165 and we do the other eliminator on there, then it’s probably going to be around the same time as well.”
Slaveski is 5-0 in BKFC and last fought on January 27th. He finished the current number five ranked middleweight Yosdenis Cedeno in the fourth round.
Palomino is currently a double champion within BKFC and holds the lightweight belt as well as the welterweight title.
Lindsey is 3-0 within the BKFC ring and has a one hundred percent finishing rate so far in bare knuckle boxing.
Tierney freshly cracked into the BKFC rankings. He is now ranked number five at welterweight. Tierney has captured lineal and tournament titles within BKB and is presently 2-0 under the BKFC umbrella.
Feldman appeared on Bowks Talking Bouts once again to break news on not just this 165-pound title scenario. The BKFC figurehead also got into international expansion plans in the Philippines and Canada, the BKFC Norfolk main and co-main events, plus so much more.
