BYB Announces Signing of Toby “2 Quick” Misech to Multi-Fight Deal

Former UFC and Bellator featherweight returns to the mighty Trigon at November 19th’s BYB 13 Tampa Brawl for it All

Miami, FL – Fresh off its UK debut, matchmaker Mel Valenzuela announced today the signing of Toby Misech to a multi-fight deal with BYB Extreme. Misech made an impressive bare knuckle debut at this past March at BYB 9, losing by fourth-round knockout to current BYB welterweight champion Seth Shaffer. Misech will return to the patented mighty Trigon on November 19th at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa against Julio Tanori, and is already eyeing a grudge-match against Shaffer.

Said Misech, “It feels great to get signed by BYB. It gives me a new drive. My last BYB fight, I was doing a mixture of boxing and MMA. Now, my focus is on point and locked in – I’m strictly focused on bare knuckle for this upcoming fight.”

He added, “I’ve won titles in MMA and now it’s time to win a bare knuckle title. You best believe I’m coming for a rematch [with Shaffer].”

“He has to earn it first,” responded Shaffer.

Misech is the latest in a strong group of fighters signed by BYB. Earlier this year, BYB announced that it signed BYB Heavyweight Champion Tony Lopez, Lorawnt-T “Smash” Nelson, Monica Medina, Miranda Barber, Chad Kelly, Mark “The Shark” Irwin, Sonya Dreiling, Mumia Abu Dey Ali, Cubb Hawkins, and Jamie Driver to multi-fight deals.

Said Valenzuela, “I’m excited to have Toby join our already-talented roster of fighters.  His pedigree stacks up against anyone in the sport. As a matchmaker, our signings, a combination of established talent and homegrown stars, has given me the ability to continue to put together the best match-ups in bare knuckle.  I challenge you to find better fights anywhere.”

BYB 13’s lineup features a trio of title matches. BYB’s Desmond Green will take on BKB’s Scott McHugh for both the BYB Middleweight title and the Police Gazette World Diamond Belt.  BYB Champion Paty Juarez and Tampa’s Monica Medina will face off in a rematch for the BYB Women’s Lightweight Title and Police Gazette women’s 135 Diamond Belt. Tony Lopez, undefeated in the Trigon, makes his first heavyweight title defense as he takes on challenger DJ Linderman
