The Dempsey Name Fights On.

Joshua ‘Dempsey’ Gormley
, the grandson of former world heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey, will headline the BYB Brawl 1: Brawl For It ALL card on Friday, April 5, at Cheyenne Ice & Event Center in Cheyenne, Wyoming, it was announced today.

BYB Extreme Fighting Series (BYB), apparently bare-knuckle fighting’s ‘most intense combat sports promoter’, will host 10 bare-knuckle fights, as well as a couple of mixed martial arts bouts, and do so inside a Trigon Triangle cage.

Gormley, the night’s headliner, is a six-foot-five heavyweight with a 23-6 pro boxing record and 22 knockouts. He has been stopped by both Andy Ruiz Jr (TKO 3) and Travis Kauffman (TKO 2), yet, according to a BYB press release, is “tailor made for bare-knuckle fighting because, in addition to his rich bloodlines, Gormley has made a living putting opponents to sleep in a ring, wearing gloves, and he figures to be even more explosive sans gloves”.

The grandson of Jack Dempsey will fight veteran Illinois mixed martial artist Bobby ‘Zombie’ Brents (17-7), a former Shamrock FC champion who lost a split-decision to Gormley’s brother, Chase, two-and-a-half years ago on a Bellator event.

Interesting angle to this card of bare knuckle.


The 6', 5" Gormley, fighting out of Miami, has a 23-6 pro boxing record, including 22 eye-popping knockouts. He seems tailor made for bare-knuckles fighting because, in addition to his rich bloodlines, Gormley has made a living putting opponents to sleep in a ring, wearing gloves, and he figures to be even more explosive sans gloves.

Gormley will take on veteran Illinois MMA fighter Bobby "Zombie" Brents (17-7), a former Shamrock FC champion who, ironically, lost a split-decision to Gormley's brother, Chase Gormely, 2-1/2 years ago at Bellator 162.



Anyone seen him fight?

You'd think they would be hyping someone other than a mid-40's fighter. :lol:

I can't wait to watch, though. Is Malignaggi so far their Gabriel Rosado? IIRC, he was the most famous fighters on the BKB platform.
