Blueface easily won his exhibition fight — and a second, unsanctioned bout — Friday night in the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.
The rapper easily defeated TikTok artist Neumane, aka Kane Trujillo, by decision. He looked semi-proficient doing it, too. But then he found himself putting his fists to use again postfight.
Some unauthorized person walked up to Blueface in the ring and appeared to anger him. Blueface connected with two rights as the trespasser was being held back by security.
People rushed into the ring to be peacemakers or to finish off the intruder.
The actual fight, another exhibition between entertainers, wasn’t much to write about. First, the fighters wore gloves, which . . . this is the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship. Commit completely to the bit. Second, just look at the size difference.
No, the really interesting stuff was these three hidden gems in the after-brawl:
1. The invader carried a phone into the ring.
Doing it for the brand/clicks?
2. Blueface didn’t even say, ‘Hold my drink.’
He just switched hands as he kept clutching a can (which is now a can of whoop-ass, no matter what the actual liquid was) that was handed to him in the ring.
3. Someone has serious hops
See how the person on the right in the image below vaults the ropes to get into the ring.
Ah, the sweet science.
