When referee Sam Burgos stepped in during the BKFC 62 co-main event, he ended the fight – but inadvertently started another. Seemingly dazed from a series of punches that led to a first-round TKO stoppage, Keith Richardson (4-1) didn’t pick up on the fight being over nor who was his intended target Saturday at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla.

After Burgos entered the pocket to halt the action, Richardson continued to throw, only the referee was the one he aimed at instead of opponent Alberto Blas (6-0). Burgos kept Richardson at bay, despite the confused fighter appearing to be functional in body but not mind. Eventually, a BKFC official wrapped up Richardson in a bear hug against the ropes. With the victory, Blas took home the promotion’s 135-pound title, while Richardson lost for the first time in bare-knuckle boxing.

Keith Richardson’s BKFC Journey

Richardson, known for his well-rounded skills, initially made a name for himself in MMA. His ground game was particularly impressive. When he joined the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC), he adapted quickly to the unique challenges of bare-knuckle combat. Despite being primarily known for his ground skills, Richardson found his power later in his career, surprising opponents with his striking abilities.

In a pivotal moment, Richardson faced the long-reigning Reggie Barnett Jr. for the BKFC World Bantamweight Championship. He secured victory by TKO in round two, claiming the title and solidifying his status as a force to be reckoned with.
