Those of you intrigued by bare knuckle boxing but not willing to shell out for pay-per-views are in luck. Mike Coppinger reports that Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) will stream a “special series of events” on DAZN starting in August.
The promotion, which just passed the second anniversary of its inaugural event, has proven to have more staying power than expected. Its shows regularly feature a number of noteworthy MMA competitors and it’s even attracted a few solid boxers in their primes, including Dat Nguyen and Olympic bronze medalist Nico Hernandez. Shot-but-still-dangerous veterans Randall Bailey and Shannon Briggs have signed on but are yet to debut.
Their last event, headlined by former Bellator champion Hector Lombard, went down in February. A planned April event featuring a trio of UFC veterans has yet to be rescheduled.
