Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship, the world’s fastest growing combat sports promotion, made a smashing first impression to Virginia combat sports fans on Friday with BKFC 39, the first ever bare knuckle fighting event in state history, at Scope Arena in Norfolk, VA, LIVE on The BKFC App.

In the Main Event, Chesapeake, VA’s Reggie “Educated Hands” Barnett Jr. improved to 9-2 (2 KOs) with a doctor stoppage TKO victory over Daniel Alvarez at the end of the third round of their fight. The bout was deemed a non-title fight after Alvarez, who accepted the matchup on eight days' notice, missed weight. Barnett Jr., who made his debut at BKFC 1 in 2018, on Friday became the first fighter in BKFC history to compete 11 times in the Squared Circle. With the loss, the Mexican-American Alvarez dropped to 1-1 (1 KO). 

In the Co-Main Event, Britain Hart, representing Bedford, VA, defended her BKFC World Women's Strawweight Championship for the first time with a Unanimous Decision over Jenny "Savage" Clausius. Hart improved to 7-3 (2 KOs) with the win and made history Friday as the first female fighter in BKFC history to enter the Squared Circle 10 times. With the loss, Clausius fell to 3-2 (2 KOs).
