Sean ‘Razor’ McFarlane released from BKB contract

Bare Knuckle Boxing veteran Sean McFarlane has been released from his contract following an amicable discussion with BKB management. Both parties agreed that this is the best move going forward and hold no ill will.

Despite a relatively late start in boxing, Sean quickly rose through the ranks to achieve a notable 6-2-3 Bare Knuckle record. Introduced to boxing during his time in the army, Sean had four gloved fights, before racking up an impressive 17-1-1 record on the unlicensed circuit. Warrington’s McFarlane certainly made an impression at UBBAD, winning three consecutive fights via first-round KO. He then went on to become Light Heavyweight Champion at another promotion, also making a successful defence of his title. In his BKB career, McFarlane fought the best. The 39-year-old’s CV boasts the promotion’s biggest names, including pound-for-pound number one and two, Ricardo Franco and Jimmy Sweeney. McFarlane’s last outing was at BKB17 in a tough encounter with rising BKB star and British title contender Scott McHugh.

Sean will continue fighting Bare Knuckle at another promotion. He also looks forward to sharing his invaluable experience by coaching and cornering other fighters.

I’ve loved being involved with the biggest and best company in the world, where my biggest achievement was fighting at the 02. I have massive respect for everyone at BKBtm, including all of the fighters, the fans and Jim and Joe for having me.

- Sean ‘Razor’ McFarlane

BKB look forward to seeing Razor at the shows, where he will be recognised as the loyal, hard-working and fearless fighter he is. Praised as ‘insanely tough’ by BKB’s commentary team, McFarlane will be remembered by his heart and fighting spirit. Toe the Line wish Sean the best of luck in the next chapter of his fighting career.
