BareKnuckle FC’s KnuckleMania has become an annual tradition for the bare-knuckle boxing outfit, and BKFC KnuckleMania 3 looked to be their biggest event yet.
With a light heavyweight title fight and names like Diego Sanchez, John Dodson, and Greg Hardy in tow, the Albuquerque, New Mexico-based card promised plenty of action. Of course, the main event featuring light heavyweight champ Lorenzo Hunt looking to defend his belt against Mike Richman was the crown jewel of the evening. Hunt was on a tremendous seven-fight win streak in bare-knuckle, with victories over Hector Lombard and Joe Riggs in that stretch.
Richman had won his last five, discounting a 2019 no contest.
Diego Sanchez, a New Mexican legend, and Greg Hardy were making their bare-knuckle boxing debuts. John Dodson, most recently seen in the RIZIN ring, was back for his sophomore outing in BKFC.
The BKFC: KnuckleMania 3 prelims will air live and free at 8 PM ET/ 5 PM PT on the BKFC website or app. The main card kicks off at 9 PM ET/ 6 PM PT for BKFC subscribers. The event is also available as a PPV via Fite.tv.
