Reggie Barnett Jr. Fiancee: He Wouldn’t Do This
Krystal Martinez, the fiancee of Barnett, posted a video on her Facebook page adding that he was last seen at a local 7-Eleven store before no-showing an open gym session he was due to attend.
“I’m terrified, because he wouldn’t leave his kids like this,” Martinez said. “He wouldn’t do this. He wouldn’t just leave. He always comes home – always.”
Barnett, 36, has been a regular for BKFC since 2018.
He became the interim bantamweight champion following his most recent win in July over Jarod Grant.
