BKFC 26: Brito vs Palomino betting picks – Friday, June 24

Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship 56

Luis Palomino is looking to become a two-division champion when he takes on Elvin Brito for the BKFC Welterweight Championship this Friday night in the main event of BKFC 26. Here’s our betting preview for that fight as well as the highly anticipated Ulysses Diaz vs Francesco Ricchi and Bec Rawlings vs Britain Hart Beltran bouts.

Welterweight: Elvin Brito (+210) vs Luis Palomino (-270)

Luis Palomino won his first bare-knuckle boxing match against Elvin Brito by decision back in February of 2020 en route to becoming the BKFC Lightweight Champion. Palomino has successfully defended his title four times since beating Isaac Vallie-Flagg to obtain it, compiling a perfect 6-0-0 record in his bare-knuckle boxing career. If Palomino wins this fight, he will become the first two-division champion in the promotion’s history.

Brito has won four straight fights since his loss to Palomino and has claimed the BKFC Welterweight Championship in the process. Going up in weight as Palomino is attempting to do can often be difficult, but he’s facing a fighter in Brito who has won his last four fights by decision, so there shouldn’t be a big concern in regards to his power. Look for Palomino to cement his legacy as one of the all-time greats with a victory on Friday.

Middleweight: Ulysses Diaz (+155) vs Francesco Ricchi (-185)

Francesco Ricchi has opened his bare-knuckle boxing career with a perfect 4-0-0 record that includes three knockout wins. Ulysses Diaz is 3-1-0 with three knockout wins and one knockout loss in his bare-knuckle career including a three-second knockout win over Daniele Benedetto that stands as the fastest knockout in BKFC history. This one isn’t likely to go to the score cards as both of these fighters will be going for the knockout in this interim BKFC Middleweight Championship bout; we’ll take a shot on Diaz at these odds in what should be a fun one.

Middleweight: Bec Rawlings (+130) vs Britain Hart Beltran (-160)

Bec Rawlings won by split decision when these two last met in 2018 at BKFC 2. This rematch was originally supposed to take place on May 13, but had to be cancelled due to Hart Beltran dealing with a medical emergency. Britain Hart Beltran is 4-1-0 over her last five fights while Rawlings has been inactive since February of 2019. We’re siding with the more active fighter to get the job done.
