In a follow up to the star-studded BKFC 41 card, Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) staged BKFC 42 last night (Fri., May 12, 2023) from inside Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina. Despite a lack of high-profile names, BKFC 42 produced nine-equally devastating knockout finishes.
The main event of the evening featured a light heavyweight clash between undefeated BKFC contender Tony Soto and former BKFC champion Tyler Goodjohn. The fight went all five rounds with Soto pushing his bare knuckle boxing record to 5-0 with the win. It was an exciting headliner to watch, but certainly not the meat and potatoes of the card.
Sparking off the BKFC 42 “Prelims” undercard were three-straight knockout finishes. One in the first round, another in the second round, and one in the third. Once the BKFC 42 main card broke out another three straight fights ended via knockout. Two in the second and one in the first.
After a No Contest between Brandon Bushaw and Rick Caruso broke up the six-fight knockout streak three out of final five fights on the main card ended early. This included massive first-round knockout finishes by Brandon Allen and Keith Richardson. It was chaos at its finest.
