Join the BYB (Back Yard Brawls) Revolution…
Inaugural event “BYB Brawl 1: Brawl for it All”
Apr. 5 in Cheyenne, Wyoming
LIVE ON WORLDWIDE PPV
MIAMI (March 21, 2019)– The electrifying fight that stole the show in the original “Dawg Fight” documentary could very well turn out to be the Fight of the Night on April 5, when Miami-based backyard brawlers Alphonso “Chocolate” Frierson and Mike “Dragon Hulk” Trujillo throw-down for the third time on the “BYB Brawl 1: Brawl For It ALL”pay-per-view show, at Cheyenne Ice & Event Center in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Frierson’s sensational one-punch, knockout of Trujillo in their first fight went viral, however, Trujillo forced Frierson’s retirement in their second encounter, setting the stage for this rubber match for their trilogy, albeit in the first sanctioned showdown between the two middleweights in a sanctioned, professional bare-knuckles brawl.
“BYB Brawl 1: Brawl For It ALL” Is the inaugural sanctioned-event promoted by BYB Extreme Fighting Series (BYB), bare-knuckles fighting’s most intense combat sports promoter, and presented by title sponsor Pure and Natural (www.getpureandnatural.com), featuring 10 professional bare-knuckle fights and 2 mixed-martial-arts fights, fighting inside “The Trigon” cage, and available to watch live worldwide on pay-per-view.
“BYB Brawl 1: Brawl For It ALL”, ironically, also concludes production of “Dawg Fight 2”, in which iconic backyard brawler Dada 5000 is the subject and star, produced once again by award-winning documentary filmmaker Billy Corben(Rakontur). Dada 5000 will be cage-side serving as a commentator.
As underground back-yard brawl fans are salivating at the prospects of watching the third Frierson-Trujillo fight, both combatants agree about one thing, that their trilogy match has the potential to be Fight of the Night.
“It can be the Fight of the Night because we have some history from the first fight when I knocked him out,” said Frierson, who is a comic-book illustrator. “He will always remember that punch. I didn’t really train for our last fight. I had a lot of stuff going on. Nothing (in the past) matters once the bell rings, it’ll just be me and him in the cage. I‘ll just go in there to fight. I didn’t predict the first fight and won’t predict this one either, but I did knock him out.”
“I agree that we could be the Fight of the Night because we do have history,” Trujillo added. “We’ve fought twice before in the backyard and this one is going to be good, too. I’m a professional fighter. I’m past the knockout. We fought again and I made him quit. Whether he quits again, or gets knocked out, I’m going to win this fight.”:

BYB Extreme Fighting Series is taking Bareknuckle Brawling into the 21st and even the 22nd centuries, not back to the 1800’s. Let’s Brawl!
