BKFC 14 Preview

Thus far, BKFC has announced officially two fights. The first fight will determine BKFC bantamweight interim champion. In this scrap, Dat Nguyen will “toe the line” with Reginald Barnett Jr. Nguyen’s original opponent, undefeated bare-knuckle boxer Johnny Bedford, was pulled from the fight due to injury.

Nguyen holds an impressive pro boxing record of 20-3, earning his last bare-knuckle victory via TKO in the first round. Barnett holds a professional combat sports record of 8-6.

Nguyen will come out on top. The Vietnamese fighter will outwork Bennett in the clinch.  His fight IQ, toughness, and constant forward pressure will add up to be too much for the 34-year old Barnett to handle. In the end, Nguyen’s experience will provide him the edge in this fight, and will earn him the BKFC 135-lb. Interim Championship.

The main event features Luis Palomino as he defends his BKFC super welterweight title against Jim Alers.

This fight promises fireworks. Jim Alers, a UFC vet, and the undefeated bare-knuckle boxer have earned 3 of his 4 BKFC victories by TKO/KO. While competing in MMA, “The Beast” finished 12 of his 14 professional victories.

Luis Palomino is also known for his finishing ability. Of his 26 MMA victories, the “Baboon” has finished 17 of them. The 40-year old Peruvian has faced off with the likes of Justin GaethjePat Curran, and Jorge Masvidal. Palomino defeated Isaac Vallie-Flagg at BKFC 11 to become the inaugural BKFC Super Welterweight Champion.

This fight will be a slugfest and will not see the judge’s scorecards. Alers will knockout Palomino in an upset victory to become the new BKFC Super Welterweight Champion.

All in all, it promises to be an outstanding night of fights and the two title fights will undoubtedly deliver in action and violence.

  1. This article is bias. It does not give a true picture. Reggie Barnett currently has the 2nd highest wins in tbe league finishing the same two guys as Dat without shedding a drop of his own blood. Dat got knocked on his ass by the same guy Reggie had on his bicycle for 5 rounds. Dat’s first BKFC win was to a guy who took fight on a week notice. Lastly Reggie’s Bareknuckle record is 5-1. CHECK THE FACTS…

  2. Hey there,
    As per the nature of the article, it is an opinion.
    Secondly, I stated that Barnett has a professional combat sports record of 8-6. I did not claim his bare knuckle record to be 8-6. I did check my facts as those are the facts.
