Tampa, FL (July 5, 2022) Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC), The World’s Fastest Growing Combat Sports Promotion, has announced BKFC Fight Night Tampa – 2 set for Saturday, July 23 in the Entertainment Hall on the Florida State Fairgrounds.

“This is our fifth event in Tampa and we’re thrilled to return and promote this world class event for the outstanding Florida BKFC fans,” said Dave Feldman, President of BKFC. “Our main event between Reggie Barnett and Jarod Grant promises fireworks from the opening bell and our co-main light heavyweight clash featuring Jared Warren versus John Michael Escoboza is an exciting match-up between two very big punchers and big opportunities for the winner.”

Pembroke Pines, Florida native Jarod ‘Kid Gatti’ Grant has built a reputation as one of the most exciting fighters in BKFC since his debut two years ago. Sporting an undefeated record of 5-0 with four stoppages, the 24-year-old returns to the squared circle following a commanding unanimous decision over Anthony Retic on March 12, 2022. The #1 ranked BKFC bantamweight also holds victories over Travis Thompson, Brandon Lambert, Chris Johnson and Jason Boudreaux.

Nicknamed ‘Educated Hands’ for the pinpoint precision of his fists, Reggie Barnett, of Virginia Beach, Virginia is a BKFC veteran who fought on the promotions’ first event in June 2018. Having compiled a record of 6-2, Barnett’s only losses have come to current BKFC Bantamweight World Champion Johnny Bedford, most recently losing a hard-fought decision on August 20, 2021. He is ranked #3 in the division.

Grant vs. Barnett will be contested for the Interim BKFC Bantamweight Title.

Co-featured in the light heavyweight division, the undefeated and heavy-handed John Michael ‘Jomi’ Escoboza of Tamarac, FL has composed a record of 7-0 with three knockouts in bare-knuckle fighting and made his BKFC debut with an impressive first-round stoppage of Zion Tomlinson on February 19, 2022 at KnuckleMania 2.

Ranked #5 in the weight class, hometown favorite Jared ‘Captain Deadpool’ Warren of Tampa, Florida sports a record of 3-2 with all three wins coming by knockout. He returns to battle against Escoboza following a hotly contested majority decision loss to Isaac Doolittle on April 8, 2022. His victories in BKFC have come against Brian Maxwell, Zion Tomlinson and Scott O’Shaughnessy.

Further undercard bouts for BKFC Fight Night Tampa -2 will be announced shortly.
