Boxing News: Nguyen wins bareknuckle title » February 27, 2021

Nguyen wins bareknuckle title

By Zach Hirsch at ringside

Formerly world-rated boxer Dat Nguyen won a five round unanimous decision over MMA fighter Johnny Bedford to claim the BKFC bareknuckle lightweight world title on Friday night at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland, Florida. It was an exciting back and forth affair with Nguyen outslugging Bedford for a 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 victory.

In a startling upset, UFC darling Paige VanZant (0-1) saw her BFKC debut spoiled by boxer Britain Hart (2-2, 1 KOs). The highest-paid and most publicized BFKC fighter was beaten over 5 action-packed rounds.

Rounding out the card:

Travis Thompson (2-3, 3 KOs) TKO 2 David Allen Morgan (0-1, ) 5 rounds lightweights

Jarod Grant (3-0, 3 KOs) KO 3 Brandon Lambert (0-1) 5 rounds lightweights

Taylor Starling (1-0, ) UD5 50-43 2xs and 49-43 Charisa Sigala (0-1) 5 rounds featherweights

Jeff Bailey (1-0, 1 KO) KO 1 Andrew James Lipton(0-3,) 5 rounds light heavyweights

Chris Leben (3-1, 3 KOs) KO 1 Quentin Henry (2-1, 2 KOs) 5 rounds heavyweight

  • Not a surprise, Havnt seen him in a while , but a handful of years back, Dat Nguyen cöuld definitely fight. Congrats David Feldman

  • Go to YouTube and search “Lenny McLean Vs Mad Gypsy Bradshaw”. This was a sometimes bare knuckler I believe. Mclean knocked this guy out BEFORE the fight started and stomped his head a few times. This has nothing to do with the article above, just popped into my head because of the bare knuckle thing. Worth a look.

    • There are a few cracking fights on there from the Governor. One fight there was an all in brawl and someone’s shooter fell onto the ring canvas. Legit geezers in attendance.

  • Hopefully Paige VaZant realizes now that mma shrinking skill are different than boxing skills.
