Previously world-rated boxer Dat Nguyen gained a 5 spherical unanimous resolution over MMA fighter Johnny Bedford to say the BKFC bareknuckle light-weight world title on Friday night time on the RP Funding Heart in Lakeland, Florida. It was an thrilling backwards and forwards affair with Nguyen outslugging Bedford for a 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 victory.
In a startling upset, UFC darling Paige VanZant (0-1) noticed her BFKC debut spoiled by boxer Britain Hart (2-2, 1 KOs). The very best-paid and most publicized BFKC fighter was overwhelmed over 5 action-packed rounds.
