The hottest and fastest-growing combat sport Bare Knuckle Fighting headed up by the world’s leading promotion Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship just announced it’s next event.
BKFC 12 will take place on September 11th live in Daytona Beach, Florida, and will include a special tribute to honor our fallen Americans who lost their lives on September 11th, 2001.
President David Feldman has not announced any bouts just yet, rumors are circulating that a fight between reigning 155lb Champion Luis Palomino and Jim Alers, both from Florida is expected to headline the card, which according to my sources will be able to have fans in attendance.
I personally think that we will have to wait for Palomino and Alers to “Toe The Line” against one another till later this year, due to the fact that they have some big names that they want to get fights for like UFC veteran Thiago Alves, whom David Feldman has high hopes for, and 135lb Champion Johnny Bedford is chomping at the bit to get back to work, and deserves a headline spot.
The Palomino vs Alers fight is going to happen, it is destined to. However, the folks at BKFC may just keep us waiting a bit longer as these two guys simmer for a minute on the way to a rolling boil.
Stay tuned here for more information.
