Kaine Tomlinson Jr. made an epic first impression in the BKFC Squared Circle on Saturday at the sold-out Revel Arena in Albuquerque, NM.
The explosive 23-year-old Roanoke, VA fighter needed just 33 seconds to KO his opponent, Apostle Spencer, in their BKFC Prospect Series welterweight matchup.
Bare knuckle fighting is a family affair for the Tomlinson clan. Kaine Sr. is a four-time BKFC vet, and Kaine Jr.’s brother, Zion Tomlinson, was at one time the youngest fighter on the BKFC roster.
Now that Tomlinson Jr. has his feet wet with BKFC Prospect Series, he wants to jump right into the deep end with BKFC. He even has an ideal opponent in mind – Trukon “The Carolina Gamedog” Carson. Carson is 2-1 on the strength of back-to-back, first-round finishes in the Squared Circle.
“We’ve had words a couple times, we’ve been face to face a couple times going back and forth, and he fights at the same weight class I do,” Tomlinson Jr. says.
“I’ve watched his fights and he’s definitely tough, but I’m tougher.”
Tomlinson Jr.’s goal with BKFC is simple.
“I need that belt around my waist.”
