Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship, a Triller property known as the world’s fastest-growing combat sports promotion, is set to make its return to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, FL on February 2, 2024, with BKFC 57.
The headline event features a welterweight clash between BKFC #1 Pound-for-Pound Fighter Luis ‘Baboon’ Palomino and former boxing World Champion Austin ‘No Doubt’ Trout. Tickets for the event are now available on BKFC.com, and the President and Founder of BKFC, David Feldman, encourages fans to secure their tickets early for what promises to be another packed house at the Hard Rock venue.
Palomino, undefeated and celebrating his four-year anniversary with BKFC 57, faces the tough challenge of Trout, who expressed excitement about competing at the highest level of BKFC. In addition to the thrilling live matchups, BKFC announced a strategic investment from Fubo TV, a premier sports and streaming platform. The collaboration between Fubo and BKFC includes the broadcast of live events, the “BKFC Prospect Series,” and the development of a reality series named “BKFC: What’s your Why?” aimed at creating an emotional connection between fighters and fans.
David Gandler, Founder & CEO of Fubo, has joined the BKFC Board of Directors. Feldman sees the Fubo investment as a significant milestone, validating BKFC’s growth and evolution. The partnership is expected to boost viewership and distribution through Fubo’s extensive reach.
Feldman said, “The investment by Fubo is not only a milestone for BKFC because it signifies and validates our continuing growth and evolution, but also will increase viewership and distribution exponentially through Fubo’s extended reach on the Fubo Sports platforms.”
Bobby Sarnevesht, CEO of Triller, BKFC’s majority owner, said, “I am very proud of this new partnership, as BKFC is the fastest growing combat sport in the world, we are very excited to bring it to the new audience. We have massive announcements coming up.”
