BKB CHAMP DANNY BATCHELDER READY TO DEFEND USA HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE
Inside and out of the boxing ring, there isn’t much Danny Batchelder hasn’t achieved. He has won world titles at light heavyweight and cruiserweight inside the squared circle, as well as fought wars with future hall of famers.
But what may be more impressive is what he has done on the bare knuckle boxing circuit. Batchelder has put together a solid 44-0 record, including 44 knockouts in the original form of pugilism. This accomplishment has not only earned him the title of the Bare Knuckle Boxing USA Heavyweight Champion, but also got him inducted into the prestigious BKB Hall of Fame. Scott Burt, President of the BKB Hall of Fame said it was a no brainer inducting Batchelder, the first ever living USA champion to be honored.
But with all the success from his gloved boxing days, and well as his continued success in the BKB world, Batchelder remains humble and gives back to the fight sport that has been such a big part of his life.
In addition to working with his two sons passing along his God given talent, Batchelder has been lending his tutelage to MMA fighters and up and coming boxers.
“The fight game has been and always be such a big part of my life,” says Batchelder. “I’ve achieved what people dream of the first time they lace up their gloves, and I’m far from done yet.”
Next month Danny Batchelder will be putting his BKB Hall of Fame belt on the line as he goes to war once again in the only second sanctioned Bare Knuckle Boxing show since 1889. There he looks to improve his impeccable undefeated record to 45-0 and solidify his legacy as one of the greatest bare knuckle pugilists of this era.
