“I’m back and ready to knock everyone out in the baddest promotion there is. Everyone knows I can knock people out, and that’s what I’m planning on doing. I can’t wait to take the gloves off and Rumble for BKFC.”
Hardy had previously announced that he was going to box in a Black Sheep Promotions event in October but it’s unclear if that’s still happening after he signed with BKFC.
