BILOXI, MS (May 28, 2022) – BYB Extreme made its Mississippi debut this weekend at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum with ten action-packed bare knuckle brawls in BYB’s patented Trigon. Headlined by a pair of title bouts, the historic evening featured three women’s matches, including the main event which pitted undefeated BYB Lightweight Champion Paty Juarez against talented hometown fighter Monica Medina.

Juarez and Medina went 7 rounds and saw Juarez win on split decision. In addition to retaining her title, Juarez was named the inaugural Police Gazette women’s 135 Diamond Belt, just the 19th to be awarded in the organization’s 141-year history.

In the co-main event, after weeks of trash talk, Tony Lopez was crowned the first BYB Heavyweight Champion, controlling Jordan Mitchell for most of the contest before referee Bobby Wombacher stopped it in the 2nd.

Multi-sport fighter Lorawnt-t Nelson and Ricardo Franco slugged it our latest BYB-BKB pairing, with Nelson stopping Franco by TKO in the 2nd.

Robert Serna impressed in his bare knuckle debut against hard-hitting Mattia Fonda with a 3rd round TKO.

After 5 solid rounds, Miranda Barber scored the split decision against Sonya Dreiling, improving her bare knuckle record to 2-0 and setting up a matchup with Jozette Cotton.

Joey Angelo and Brandon Johnson looked poised to go the distance before a torn biceps prevented Angelo from starting the 5th and final round of their cruiserweight matchup, giving Johnson the TKO.

The show opened up with back-to-back 1st round knockouts as Mark Irwin defeated Spencer Ruggeri improving to a perfect 2-0 in bare knuckle, and Nick Hawkins impressing in his bare knuckle debut toppling Mumia Abu Dey Ali. Jamie Driver followed up with a first round TKO over Randine Eckholm.
