About ten years after his last UFC outing, Alan Belcher won his first bareknuckle boxing world championship.
AT BKFC 36 on Friday night, BKFC heavyweight champion Arnold Adams and Belcher faced off in the main event. Eight highlight-reel knockouts were featured on the card.
Early on, Belcher’s situation was not favorable as Adams broke him open against the ropes with a flurry of blows. After escaping the first round, things got worse when Adams delivered a right that injured Belcher’s left eye.
Belcher gave another right hook to Adams that sent him to the canvas while grabbing his eye. Belcher responded to the referee’s count despite his agony and carried on.
Adams rushed in and used a flurry of blows to get another knockdown. Belcher was prepared to continue even before the referee finished his count because he did not want to give up.
Adams was sent to the ground by Belcher’s glancing strike seconds later, sending the fans into a frenzy. As Belcher sensed a sudden change in momentum, he unleashed his strikes. Adams was knocked down by a vicious uppercut delivered by Belcher with little over a minute remaining in the third round.
The bout was then officially called off and Alan Belcher was named the new BKFC heavyweight world champion.
