31. Heavyweight aspirations or so he thought…

Micah Brakefield was the BFL amateur middleweight champion. He beat Justin Lansing by knockout just 25-seconds into their BFL 9 title bout and just two months later, Brakefield wanted a larger challenge.

At BFL 11, after heavyweight Adam Santos had his original opponent fall out, the ‘Mitey’ one decided to step up two weight divisions on just 10-days notice. This bout was for the vacant amateur heavyweight title.

Things didn’t go Brakefield’s way in that fight, in fact, Santos finished him in just 22-seconds. However it showed that some fighters will fight anyone and Brakefield is definitely one of those fighters.

Brakefield went on to defend his middleweight gold twice, against Jer Kornelsen and Ryan Allen. He then decided to turn pro.

Santos also defended the heavyweight belt on two occasions, against Kyle Francotti and Jamie Smyth. He then turned pro and has gone 1-1. The heavyweight has not fought since his 2014 loss to Arjan Bhullar.
