Lorenzo Hunt vs. Mike Richman set as main event for BKFC KnuckleMania 3 on Feb. 17


A light heavyweight title unification bout between Lorenzo Hunt and Mike Richman is set to serve as the main event for BKFC KnuckleMania 3, which will be held in Albuquerque, N.M. on Feb. 17.

Officials from BKFC confirmed Wednesday that the information was received by MMA Fighting.

In addition to Hunt vs. Richman, multi-time boxing champion Austin Trout is also expected to make his bare-knuckle debut on the same card in the co-main event with an opponent still to be determined.

Since joining the BKFC roster, Hunt has been one of the most active and most successful fighters in the promotion while also winning titles across two different divisions. Hunt is a formidable opponent to Joe Riggs, Quentin Henry and Hector Lombard.

Richman is a former Bellator fighter who has compiled a flawless 4-0 record ever since he made the switch to bare-knuckle. Richman was crowned interim champion light heavyweight after a tough victory over Isaac Doolittle.

BKFC has typically made KnuckleMania one of the biggest cards of the year for the organization and it’s expected that more title fights will be added to the final lineup.
