Ellsworth, Maine - Although it has been some speculation for the last couple weeks now, New England's #8 Ranked Pro Heavyweight and only signed Bare Knuckle Boxer; Chris "Golden Gloves" Sarro (2-0, 1-0 BKFC) will indeed toe the line at Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship 11; Friday, July 24th in Oxford, Mississippi. Sarro will be making his second appearance under the BKFC banner and will be looking to improve upon on a first round, one punch, knockout of John McAllister in November of 2019 at BKFC 9. Since his knockout of McAllister, Sarro has become one of the promotions biggest stars, with his eyes securely set on the promotion's top prize; The BKFC Heavyweight Title and the National Police Gazette American Heavyweight belt. Sarro has been training at MXA Fitness in his hometown of Ellsworth, Maine with his good friend, head coach and mentor Garth Krane for this entire fight camp. A fight camp which, if you include his scrapped bout in April due to Coronavirus, dates back nearly eight months. With the culmination of this camp just around the corner, "Team Golden Gloves" have their eyes set on their next opponent; Riverton, Wyoming brawler; Billy "The Kid" Martin (7-24 pro MMA, BKFC debut). A veteran of over 30 professional MMA bouts, Billy "The Kid" has never seen the final bell, win or lose, Martin comes out to end fights early, something Chris Sarro has made his living on since he turned pro last year. Sarro ended his first two professional bouts in the very first round, landing brutal right hands in both!
The eyes of the Bare Knuckle world will be set on the Lafayette County Multipurpose Arena in Oxford, Mississippi Friday, July 24th as New England Bare Knuckle Legend; Chris "Golden Gloves" Sarro continues his climb to title contention, when he shares the "Squared Circle" with Billy "The Kid" Martin in a featured bout at 205 pounds. BKFC 11 is also due to headline with a Lightweight World Title Bout between Luis "Baboon" Palomino (26-16 pro MMA 1-0 BKFC) and Isaac Vallie-Flagg (16-7 pro MMA, 3-0 Bare Knuckle, 2-0 BKFC), Vallie-Flagg will be replacing former headliner Jim "The Beast" Alers (14-4 pro MMA, 4-0 BKFC) who was forced to pull out of the bout when a member of his corner tested positive for Covid-19. BKFC 11 will also be co-headlined by Fan Favorite Kaleb Harris (3-1 pro MMA, 2-2 BKFC) as he takes on Elvin "El Bandito" Brito (9-8 pro MMA, 1-2 BKFC).
