Former UFC and Invicta FC athlete Pearl Gonzalez will continue her bare-knuckle boxing career next month.
On Sunday, BKFC officials announced that Gonzalez (1-0 BKB) would face Britain Hart (3-2 BKB) at BKFC Miami on November 22. The duo join a pair of title fights on the card, numerically BKFC 22.
Gonzalez made her bare-knuckle debut for the promotion earlier this year, earning a unanimous decision win over Charisa Sigala back in June. Coincidentally, that bout also took place in Miami.
Prior to joining Bare Knuckle FC, Gonzalez spent a couple of years under the Invicta FC banner, and challenged for the flyweight title there. Before her Invicta run, “The Chi-Town Princess” competed twice for the UFC.
After losing her first two fights under the BKFC banner and taking a few matches under the traditional boxing ruleset, Britain Hart returned to BKFC in November of 2020 and has not looked back. She’s won three straight fights, most notably against the high-profile Paige VanZant. Most recently, she finished Jenny Clausius in July.
Hart will look to make it four in a row against Pearl Gonzalez, which could boost her profile even higher.
BKFC 22 takes place November 12 at the James L. Knight Center in Miami, Florida. The card is headlined by a cruiserweight title fight between current champ Hector Lombard and challenger Lorenzo Hunt. The event is expected to air on PPV via Fite.tv and on the BKFC App.
