Extreme Bare Knuckle Fighting Makes a Comeback in Biloxi on September 16th

Bare Knuckle Fighting is making its return to the Bayou with a lineup of intense matchups!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 16th, as the BYB Extreme Fighting Series comes back to Biloxi, Mississippi, bringing the much-anticipated "BYB20: Brawl on the Bayou" to the Mississippi Coast Coliseum. The doors will open at 7 p.m., and the thrilling matches will kick off at 8 p.m. Exciting clashes await, featuring both new and familiar contenders, all within BYB's distinctive three-sided "Trigon" ring.

The spotlight of the electrifying evening will shine on Monica Medina, a native of Biloxi. She's set to finally face off against the reigning champion, Paty Juarez, in a rematch that has been long overdue. This battle is not only for the BYB Women’s Lightweight championship but also for the prestigious Police Gazette women’s 135 Diamond Belt.

A new name in the bare-knuckle arena, Kaelii Medina, previously seen in Bellator, will make his bare-knuckle debut against Lebanon’s Mohamad “The Killer” Ghorabi. Another highlight is the return of Julio Tanori, recipient of the Bare Knuckle Boxing Hall of Fame’s 2022 BYB Debut Fighter of the Year award. He's stepping back into the ring for a lightweight showdown against the fresh face of BYB, Jeremiah Potts.
