In anticipation of this weekend’s games, we present our top two storylines.
In the main event, welterweight monsters feast.
This Saturday’s Main Event pits two of bare-knuckle fighting’s brightest welterweight stars, American Jake “The Gypsy” Lindsey and England’s Connor “Brum Town Bomber” Tierney. Tierney is currently ranked fifth in the BKFC welterweight division, but a win for Lindsey in London would vault him into the top five for the first time. Tierney has a 7-1 record overall, while Lindsey is 3-0 in the BKFC with no losses. The three-time UFC veteran Lindsey is going for his fourth consecutive stoppage, while the undefeated Tierney is going for his sixth straight win and fourth KO.
Focus on the Supporting Act
Acclaimed works in English A pair of hard-hitting welterweights, Rico “Bon Bon” Franco (6-2, 4 KOs) and Dan “Hurricane” Breeze (1-1, 1 KO), will make their BKFC debuts on Saturday, and both hope to leave an indelible impression on the BKFC’s worldwide audience. Franco has been one of England’s best bare-knuckle fighters for quite some time, and Breeze enters his BKFC debut with a perfect 10-0 record in professional boxing. Both Franco and Breeze are hungry for a big win in this must-see co-main event bout, and the welterweight division is one of the deepest in the BKFC.
