Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship Fight Week hosts back-to-back events this weekend. On Friday, BKFC makes its debut in Bulgaria with BKFC 54 at Arena Sofia in Sofia. On Saturday, the squared circle returns to Leeds, England with BKFC 55 at Planet Ice Leeds. All the action, as always, streams live worldwide on The BKFC App. Friday’s BKFC 54 from Bulgaria features Bulgarian MMA legends Rosen Dimitrov and Georgi Valentinov dropping their gloves in separate bouts. Dimitrov’s MMA record is an immaculate 35-5, and he’s been victorious in his last 13 fights. He’s hunting for the 13th KO of his fighting career against Todor Zhelyazkov. Valentinov is 22-6 as a professional MMA fighter. He’s looking for the sixth KO of his career against Bojan Kosendar, also in middleweight action.
Saturday’s BKFC 55 main event sees the unbeaten United Kingdom contender Danny Christie try to improve to 4-0 in the squared circle with a fourth straight KO against United States fan-favorite Jared Warren (5-2, 1 NC). In the co-feature, former BKFC UK title challenger Anthony Holmes looks to improve to 5-1-1 in bare knuckle action against Bart Król (2-0, 1 KO) in a middleweight fight. Saturday's can't-miss event features three of the sport’s top cruiserweight prospects – Dawid Oskar (3-0), Darren Hendry (4-1) and Mason Shaw (6-4-1) – and a full slate of BKFC UK’s most exciting and hardest-hitting fighters.
