ABOUT BYB AND THE PATENTED MIGHTY TRIGON
The Trigon was designed to promote confrontation in the center of the ring, leaving the results in the hands of the fighters and not the judges. Being the smallest ring with the tightest corners, the patented design has resulted in the highest KO/TKO rate in combat sports with over 90%.
Originating in South Florida with backyard legend Dada 5000, BYB has put together the top competition in the growing sport of bare knuckle as well as a support team consisting of some of the biggest and most respected names in combat sports, including Nelson Sweglar – Executive Producer WWF/WrestleMania; Al Bernstein – SHOWTIME Boxing; Mike Goldberg – UFC / Bellator; Paulie Malignaggi – 2x World Champion & SHOWTIME Boxing; Claudia Trejos – ESPN, DAZN; Benny Ricardo – CBS Sports; and Dave Ryan – ESPN.
