Britain Hart will be fighting in Pattaya on November 4th. The bare knuckle champion has been matched with Thailand’s Po Denman on the card that will be headlined by Buakaw Banchamek’s match with with Saenchai PKSaenchaigym.

Hart holds the BKFC flyweight title and has a record of 7-2. She lost her first two bare knuckle fights but has won seven out of her last eight and holds wins over numerous mixed martial artists.

In 2021 she beat Paige VanZant. It was the UFC veteran’s bare knuckle debut and probably generated more media interest than any fight in the recent history of bare knuckle boxing but Hart had her hand raised at the end.

She also holds wins over UFC veterans Bec Rawlings and Pearl Gonzalez.

Non title

Hart won the BKFC strawweight title in 2022 and has defended it once. This will be her first time fighting outside of the US and her belt will not be on the line because she is moving up to 125lbs.

Her opponent at BKFC Thailand 5 is Denman who holds a 1-0 record in bare knuckle boxing. But while Hart might be more experienced when it comes to competing without gloves the Thai’s boxing pedigree is far superior.

Denman holds a 17-1-1 record in traditional boxing. At BKFC 4 she beat Tai Emery, the Australian who became famous for bearing her breasts after winning a bare knuckle bout in Bangkok.

Two legends

The event will be headlined by the eagerly anticipated bare knuckle Muay Thai fight between Buakaw and Saenchai. The two men are firm friends outside of the ring but have agreed to face one another at BKFC Asia 5.

The event is set for the Pattaya Exhibition and Convention Hall. There was a press conference yesterday in Bangkok in which Buakaw and Saenchai went head to head and made it clear that they would indeed be fighting each other.

But the star power is not just restricted to the top of the card. One of BKFC’s most photogenic fighters and a reigning champion is flying all the way from the US to take on Thailand’s top female bare knuckle boxer.
