BKFC 38 Fight Card & How to Watch
Bare Knuckle FC returns to Florida for its next event.
BKFC 38 takes place this Friday March 17 in Delray Beach, roughly 50 miles north of Miami.
Dat Nguyen Returns to BKFC
The 12-bout fight card is headlined by comebacking former champion. Former BKFC bantamweight champion Dat “Be Dat” Nguyen makes his ring return after a 16-month absence.
Nguyen, a former pro boxer with a 3-1 BKFC record, meets Bellator MMA veteran Daniel Straus in a featherweight contest. It’s the first bare knuckle fight for Straus, a former Bellator champion.
Jake Bostwick vs Isaac Doolittle
The co-main event is an intriguing match up between two BKFC veterans. Light heavyweight contender Isaac “The Honey Badger” Doolittle meets Jake Bostwick of the UK.
Doolittle returns from a heartbreaking stoppage defeat to Mike Richman last October. “The Honey Badger” badly hurt Richman in the second round. Richman survived, stopping a fatigued Doolittle in the third.
“The Honey Badger” is looking to get back in the win column against Bostwick. The Brit comes off a win against Chris Fishgold at BKFC 27 in London last August.
Bostwick improved his record to 2-2 with the wing against Fishgold. His losses are to former title challenger Francesco Ricchi and veteran Julian Lane.
Ricchi was knocked out in devastating fashion by David Mundell at BKFC 34 in December.
