  • BKFC bantamweight champion Keith Richardson fought the referee without realizing he already got TKO’d
  • “Rockstar” joked about the incident after the fight

Now-former BKFC bantamweight champion Keith Richardson threw a couple of punches at the referee right after the fight was stopped at BKFC 62.

The fight went on

Richardson came in prepared to defend his bantamweight title against Alberto Blas at BKFC 62 last Friday at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. Unfortunately for Richardson, he did not only fail to do so but also humiliated himself in the process.

Blas hurt “Rockstar” early in the fight with some vicious strikes. Richardson had no answer for Blas and eventually got rocked and badly beaten. Referee Samuel Burgos was prompted to intervene and stop the fight just before Richardson gets flattened out.

Still dazed, “Rockstar” thought the fight was still on and began swinging at Burgos. The bizarre scenery only goes to show that Richardson clearly got TKO’d.

Richardson make light of it

In his post-fight presser, Richardson reflected on his loss and even joked about the incident. He is looking forward to moving on and figuring out what he should improve.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve taken an L, I’ll regroup and might take another shot at that ref. Y’all saved him. He didn’t want it,” he said.

As it stands, Richardson now has a 4-1 BKFC record, while Blas improved his undefeated BKFC run to five wins in a row. He is now the new BKFC bantamweight champion.
