Video: Bareknuckle boxer melted by body blow can’t shake post-fight punch print — Goldie on the call!

It is all over! Just ... like ... that!

South Carolina State Athletic Commission recently legalized bareknuckle boxing in “The Palmetto State” and BYB Extreme wasted little time in marking its territory. BYB 14: “Carolina Brawl” took place last weekend at Rock Hill Sports & Event Center and featured Sam Liera’s Interim Super Middleweight title win over LT Nelson, setting up a unifying title tilt opposite division champion Jose Fernandez at some point in 2023.

The highlights making the rounds after the Dec. 9 fight card featured hometown hero Joshua Oxendine, who melted Christopher Gonzalez with a brutal body blow in the opening round of their welterweight co-main event. The shot stuck with Gonzalez — literally — well after the fight as seen in the photo below.

“I like to baptize my opponents in the ring,” said Oxendine, a minister at Casa De Avivamiento/House of Revival since 2019. “As much as I love laying hands on people in the ring, it brings me even greater joy knowing I can use my passions to leave a positive impact on my community and the world.”
