BKFC 19 is starting to take shape for July 23. With Paige VanZant vs Rachael Ostovich already announced for the card, Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship have now announced that Britain Hart will face Jenny Savage on the show, as well.
You’ll recall that Hart “spoiled” VanZant’s BKFC debut in January at KnuckleMania, by which we mean she beat her. You may recall Hart’s incredible post-fight interview in which she made clear she is not a person but a “fucking feeling,” and was interrupted at one point in yet another cornball BKFC bit where they had somebody interrupt a post-fight interview, which they do way too often for it to ever seem less than contrived at this point.
Hart is 2-2 in BKFC, losing fights to Bec Rawlings and Christine Ferea in 2018-19, before bouncing back with victories in her last two outings. Savage is 1-0, making her debut last December with a second round stoppage win over Sheena Brandenburg.
We’ll also note while we’re here that BKFC 18, a loaded card, does have an official date now, and it’s June 26, which puts it ad odds with the Tank Davis-Mario Barrios PPV and the Vasiliy Lomachenko-Masayoshi Nakatani fight on ESPN, which stinks on our end because it’s a terrific BKFC card but the date means we won’t have live coverage for that one.
