BKFC 47 Heads to Florida with Middleweight Championship Main Event

Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship is gearing up for yet another exciting event as it returns to the sunny state of Florida. Set to take place on July 14 at a soon-to-be-named venue in Lakeland, BKFC 47 promises to deliver an electrifying night of bare-knuckle action to fans around the world.

The highly anticipated main event of the evening features a clash for the middleweight championship. Defending champion David Mundell, with an impressive record of 6-1, is prepared to put his title on the line against the formidable Mike Richman, a former Bellator standout. Richman, known for his exploits at light heavyweight, will be making the daring move down to the 175-pound weight class.

Mundell, at the age of 31, made a seamless transition from professional mixed martial arts to the world of bare-knuckle boxing during the early days of BKFC. With a career MMA record of 10-5, Mundell seized the BKFC middleweight title in December when he secured a third-round TKO victory over Francesco Ricchi at BKFC 34.

Currently riding high on a four-fight winning streak, Mundell will look to showcase his relentless determination and skill as he defends his hard-earned crown.

Meanwhile, Richman, aged 37, seeks redemption following a knockout loss to Lorenzo Hunt in a light heavyweight title fight at KnuckleMania 3. Although Richman managed to drop Hunt during the match, an unfortunate turn of events resulted in him being knocked unconscious in a wild and unforgettable sequence.

This upcoming bout presents an opportunity for Richman to prove his mettle in the world of bare-knuckle fighting, and he undoubtedly aims to make a resounding statement with a victory over the reigning champion.

While the main event promises fireworks, fight enthusiasts can also look forward to a line-up of additional thrilling matchups. Although no other fights have been announced thus far, BKFC has a reputation for delivering exhilarating contests that keep fans on the edge of their seats.

So, mark your calendars, prepare for an adrenaline-pumping experience, and get ready to witness the next chapter in bare-knuckle history as BKFC 47 takes center stage in Lakeland, Florida.
