A heated rivalry between BKFCs will be rewritten with the championship title at stake.
BKFC President David Feldman announced during Friday’s Knucklemania 3 event that a strawweight title fight between Britain Hart and Jenny Savage will take place at BKFC 39, which takes place March 24 at the Scope Arena in Norfolk, Va.
The pairing first met at BKFC 19 in July 2021, and Hart earned a third-round finish to extend her winning streak after defeating Paige VanZant at the first Knucklemania event five months prior. Hart won the inaugural strawweight title by winning a unanimous win over Charisa Zigala at BKFC in September.
Since the loss to Hart — which was at flyweight — Savage also made the move to strawweight, where she has won two straight, including a 38-second finish of Nekah Dmitriyeva at BKFC 29.
The bout will serve as the co-main event, and the first of two title fights on the card as Reggie Barnett will defend his bantamweight title against Gustaf Cedermalm in the main event.
