After a weekend of abuse on social media by ex pro Jamie Hearn, the unbeaten Bare Knuckle favourite Billy ‘Bang Bang’ Hawthorn (6-0) is set to go toe to toe in the ring with Hearn on May 7th at the second Coventry UBBAD BKB super show.
Hearn who is an ex professional boxer and mixed martial artist has been relentless in his stream of insults to Hawthorn on social media for the past few days, on speaking to Hawthorn and asking what he knows about Hearn’s history he was quoted as saying “I don’t follow has been’s”
This will be the first Bare Knuckle bout for Hearn who’s professional boxing record stands at 11 wins, 5 by way of knockout and 8 losses, 5 of those being by way of knockout and one draw. As yet Hearn has been unavailable for comment.
Fans of BKB are positively salivating on the prospect of this match and as always people will be wondering if Hearn can transfer his boxing skills to Bare Knuckle, something which not all ex pro boxers can do.
The bookies and fans firm favourite in Hawthorn to win by KO first round but only time will tell.
