From Scott Burt:
I have just been contacted and received notice that I will be travelling to the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, this Wednesday, March 23, 2016, to officially announce the Top 10 Ranked WORLD Heavyweight Bare Knuckle Boxers and the Top 10 Ranked AMERICAN Heavyweight Bare Knuckle Boxers; the first time in 130 years that an official announcement about bare knuckle boxing has ever been done. On hand will be Steve Westlake, publisher of the iconic National Police Gazette, reigning World BKB Champion Bobby Gunn, reigning American BKB Champion Danny Batchelder, and the belts. In February the Police Gazette named me as the only person in the World authorized to name Champions and to give out belts recognizing such....a privilege they have had since the 1880s. I am honored beyond words.
Scott Burt, BKB Hall of Fame President
