BKFC free fight: Ben Rothwell retires Josh Copeland after battering him for three rounds


Ben Rothwell is getting the hang of this bareknuckle boxing thing.

The former UFC heavyweight contender moved to 2-0 in BKFC this past April when he defeated Josh Copeland back at BKFC 41. After battering Copeland for three rounds, Copeland’s corner decided to throw in the towel and not send their fighter back for the fourth round. This gave Rothwell a TKO victory and his second win since transitioning from MMA.

You can watch Rothwell’s impressive win over Copeland in the video above.

Rothwell returns to the ring this Friday in the co-main event of BKFC 56. He takes on fellow UFC veteran Todd Duffee. The event takes place at Maverik Center in Salt Lake City. The pay-per-view streams on the BKFC app and other streaming platforms.
