BKFC 13 results: Joey Beltran retains heavyweight title, Nico Hernandez wins bare knuckle debut


Beltran was connecting with shots, and then Stamps went down to the canvas claiming he was hit in the back of the head or neck, which replays didn’t seem to show.


“There’s a few guys that pop up in my mind, but I’lls ay it now, and I’ve said it since I won the title, but there’s only one I wanna fight, and that’s my man Arnold Adams,” he said.


BKFC/BKTV This was the bare knuckle debut for Kansas’ Hernandez, who won a bronze medal for Team USA at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, but whose pro career has been frankly stuck in his home state and gone nowhere since it began in 2017.


He hung in for four rounds with an Olympic bronze medal boxer without getting dropped, and though he was obviously out-classed in boxing skill, he was very game and tried his absolute best.


The 24-year-old Hernandez hadn’t had an organized fight since Feb. 2019, when he beat a club fighter in Mulvane, Kan., and he’s said recently he does plan to keep going in pro boxing .


These two talked a ton of trash during and after rounds, and Hernandez was just able to out-box Freriks; of the fights up to this point on the show, this was the one most obviously between two trained boxers, with jabs and feints and defense and actual movement and stuff.
