BYB Extreme Announces Two-Fight Broadcast Partnership with Stadium
BYB 12: London Brawl scheduled for October 16th and BYB 13: Tampa Brawl for it All scheduled for November 19th to be broadcast live on the Stadium App and WatchStadium.com, with prime time, multi-night replays to air on Stadium’s OTA affiliates across the US.
Miami, FL – BYB Extreme Fighting Series CEO Gregory Bloom announced today that BYB will broadcast its October 16 London and November 19 Tampa cards live and exclusively on Stadium’s over the top (OTT) and over the air (OTA) platforms.
“BYB had been approached by a number of potential broadcast partners eager to expand bare knuckle boxing coverage to its existing, sports-hungry audiences,” said Bloom. “We are pleased and enthused to have found a partner like Stadium whose familiarity with the sport and bullishness on its future has enabled us the opportunity to bring our action-packed form of entertainment to a broader, more mainstream viewership.”
He added, “Once new fans see our product, they are going to be hooked. Our patented Trigon ring ensures non-stop action and an unprecedented knockout rate. We give fans what they want – competitive matches decided by the fighters, not by the judges.”

BYB 12: London Brawl will air at 10 AM ET on Sunday, October 16, 2002 live from the Indigo at the O2 in association with its bare knuckle alliance partner BKB.
BYB 13 in Tampa will feature three title fights including BYB’s Desmond Green taking on BKB’s Scott McHugh for both the BYB Middleweight title and the Police Gazette World Diamond Belt, and a rematch between champion Paty Juarez and Monica Medina for the BYB Women’s Lightweight title.
This past November, the US-based BYB and UK-based BKB announced a talent exchange that culminated in a series of high-intensity, cross-promotional bouts at each of the organizations’ past several shows. October 16 marks the first standalone show by either promotion in the other’s backyard.
The October 16 card will feature a series of BYB vs. BYB matchups, as well as BKB vs. BKB and BYB vs. BKB cross-promotional bouts. Over a dozen fights are slated for the card including the main event for both the BYB Welterweight Title and the Police Gazette World Diamond Belt between Carlos “El Diamante” Guerra and Seth “The Body Snatcher” Shaffer. Both bare knuckle brawlers are undefeated in the division. Jozette Cotton and Miranda “She Hulk” Barber will face off for the inaugural BYB Women’s Welterweight title and the Police Gazette Diamond Belt – the first women’s bare knuckle championship fight in the UK.
