If you are a combat sports fan, then Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship is where you should be tuning in tomorrow night on December 11th. The BKFC offers an intuitive app with an affordable subscription to grant you access to all of their live events along with access to past fights and their Toe The Line Series as well.
With recent acquisitions of top tier UK fighters, Mark “The Hand Of” Godbeer and Tyler Goodjohn, it seems the BKFC is well on their way to being recognized internationally as the leading bare-knuckle boxing promotion. “The British are Coming” was the headline to this fight prior to the positive COVID-19 test of Mark Godbeer. Now just one Brit is fighting in the co-main event.
Not to disappoint, the matchmakers have Tyler Goodjohn slated to fight the man we all know formerly as Charles “Crazy Horse” Bennet, changing his nickname recently to “Felony”. Bennet (0-2) Vs. Goodjohn (2-0) has the potential to be one of the most electrifying fights in BKFC history. Don’t blink. Mark Godbeer was replaced by Bobo O’Bannon (2-0). Don’t let the lack of professional bare-knuckle fights fool you. Bobo has sparred with the likes of Deontay Wilder and fought many boxing pros.
In his last main event appearance on “Toe The Line” O’Bannon faced Mike Kyle. After being knocked down early in the first round, O’Bannon brought continuous pressure eventually knocking Kyle down to the canvas. Round two started with a flurry of punches from O’Bannon that put Kyle on the canvas twice more. Kyle was unable to make the call to toe the line for the third round and the fight was declared a TKO victory for O’Bannon.
Sam Shewmaker was Godbeer’s original opponent and with just a week’s notice O’Bannon stepped up to fill the Brit’s place. Shewmaker (3-1-1) last fought active UFC heavyweight Chase Sherman in a bout that went the distance and ended in a draw. O’Bannon was so impressive in his last fight, I’m anticipating an absolute war between these two men.
Before the main event and the co-main event, there are a couple of other fights you’ll surely want to watch. One of those fights is the only female bout on the card, Sheena Starr Vs. Jenny Savage. Starr will be the veteran with 3 fights and a 10 year age gap. The 27-year-old Savage will be making her bare-knuckle boxing debut. Expect Starr’s to fly during this one.
Chris Sarro (2-0) Vs. Josh Burns (4-4) is going to be one of the most explosive fights on the card. Burns is the more experienced bare-knuckle boxer and has raw strength capable of knocking out almost any opponent. Sarro has knocked out every opponent he has faced thus far and looks to do the same when he faces Josh Burns on December 11th at BKFC 15.
