Dubai, UAE – After closing 2022 out with historical firsts, including the first-ever sanctioned women’s bare knuckle matches in the United Kingdom and South Carolina’s first-ever bare knuckle fighting event, BYB CEO Gregory Bloom announced today that the US-based BYB Extreme Fighting Series will host the first-ever bare knuckle boxing event in the Gulf-region. BYB 16: Desert Brawl will take place St. Patrick’s Day weekend at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium in the United Arab Emirates in the heart of the city’s Irish Village.

“BYB promised to bring bare knuckle boxing to a mainstream, global audience, and BYB 16 will be the next step in doing just that,” said Bloom. “The UAE has fast become a cultural hub and international destination for sports and entertainment. Through BYB 16 and our partnership with CoreSports, BYB will spread its reach at that of bare knuckle boxing to not only the UAE, but to countries throughout the region, as well as to parts of Europe and South Asia.”
