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.
