BKB, known for its action-packed, close-range style of boxing, added additional fights to the card for the third event with son of Hall-of-Fame boxer “Sugar” Shane Mosley, Shane Mosley Jr., making his BKB debut in “The Pit” against Boston’s own Jason Kelly.
BKB3 is being held at Mandalay Bay Event Center on June 27 at 10 p.m. ET and will be available on Pay-Per-View from DIRECTV and DISH, as well as cable and telco providers through IN DEMAND and Vubiquity for $29.95.
“BKB is an exciting brand of boxing forcing fighters to put up or shut up,” said Mosley Sr. “My son’s fighting style is a perfect fit for the BKB format. All of his wins have come by way of a knockout and we plan to continue that trend at BKB3.”
BKB3’s main event features the inaugural Heavyweight Championship fight between BKB veteran Julian Pollard and former K1 Heavyweight Tyrone Spong. A $30,000 bonus will be awarded to the fighter if he knocks out his opponent.
Featuring seven action-packed fights, BKB will again provide its exclusive HitChip technology, which debuted at BKB2 last April, providing the PPV audience stats on punching power and velocity data. To incentivize fighters further, BKB3 will give $10,000 bonuses for “punch of the night” and “BKB HitChip hardest punch.”
