In the bare knuckle light heavyweight title fight, Lorenzo Hunt aka “The Juggernaut” looked to defend his belt against challenger Mike Richman. Even before the opening bell rang, there was no love lost between these two opponents. The trash talking began as early as the pre-fight press conference brawl, where the two literally broke the stage.
As the actual fight finally got underway, it appeared that Richman’s early blows to Hunt’s head and body would keep Hunt from defending his title. In fact, Richman was so successful in his approach that he was able to score an early thunderous head shot that sent Hunt to the mat. But after a seven count, Hunt composed himself and retaliated like a man possessed. Hunt went on the attack and countered with a massive right hand of his own that instantly knocked Richarman’s lights out. Despite being out-punched 43-28, Hunt was able to walk away with his title intact.
