Britain Hart, the tough, scrappy boxer and bare knuckle fighter is ready to have her biggest professional fight as she prepares to face and welcome former UFC fighter PaigeVanZant to Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.
The bout is scheduled to take place on February 5, 2021, live on PPV, from Lakeland, FL
During this interview, Hart, like her fighting style, held nothing back as to why she feels she deserves this fight.
Hart believes she has earned this fight and plans to give VanZant one of the toughest fights that she’s ever competed in.
VanZant, the former UFC star, will make her brutal transition on February 5 as she faces Hart in her first bare knuckle fight.
Do numbers matter?
VanZant, with over (2.7M+) Instagram followers, is surely coming into this fight as the odds on favorite with Hart having (7K+) Instagram followers to date.
VanZant (26) has promised ‘blood’ when she debuts with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.
“February 5th. There will be blood. @bareknucklefc link in bio.”
Hart, 30, has boxed 11 times as a professional, with a record of 4-4-3.
She made her BKBFC debut in 2018 but was beaten, since earning a losing record of 1-2.
Hart herself has faced great good competition from both the boxing and MMA world during her professional fighting career, having faced MMA fighter Bec Rawlings (Split Decision – Bareknuckle Boxing – 08/25/18); and world class boxer Ikram Kerwat (Unanimous Decision – Boxing – 02/17/17), and more.
At first glance, when you think about VanZant’s popularity and when you look at Hart’s professional fighting record, one would think that this will be a fight for VanZant.
BKBFC president David Feldman himself has been on record in saying:
“Britain’s a real tough girl – she’s skilled, but she’s not the best technical boxer in the world.”
“Paige isn’t going to have to chase her down. It’s going to be competitive, but I think it’s going to be a good opponent choice for Paige on her first event.”
“[Paige is] getting paid very well, and I don’t think we could have thrown her somebody that never fought bare-knuckle before, or at least someone that had a pretty well-established record. I don’t think the fans would have liked that. We’re going to give the fans what they want.”
Hart herself agrees with Feldman, but she also feels that you can teach technical flaws, but you can’t teach a person to have “heart” when they’re in a fight.
“Feldman is right and to be honest, I don’t feel disrespected by his comment.”
“I may not have the boxing skill of a Claressa Shields or Amanda Serrano or Heather Hardy, but I can fight.”
“I’ve been through a lot in life. I’ve had my ups and downs, but I am going to show the world that it’s about what’s inside of you that counts.”
“No other female fighters called out VanZant. They’re rolling out the red carpet for her.”
“Once the bell rings, all bets are off I’m coming to fight and I’m coming to win.”
Listen close and intently to this great interview with Hart as she shares exactly who she is as fighter, mother, and inspiration to all.
