Denver, CO – BYB Extreme Bare Knuckle Fighting Series announced today that it will return to Denver’s Stockyards Event Center September 21 for BYB 31 Stockyard Brawl. Headlining the card will be a rematch for the BYB Lightweight championship between champion Julio Tanori (3-0, 2 KOs) and former champion Mark “The Shark” Irwin (3-1, 2 KOs). The pair put on a showstopping performance last December at the same venue in what was awarded not only the BYB 22 Fight of the Night, but was honored by the Bare Knuckle Boxing Hall of Fame’s 2023 Fight of the Year. In that fight, Tanori bested Irwin by 6-round majority decision and, in turn, at 21 became the youngest active world champion in both boxing and bare knuckle. Tickets are on sale now at

Never short on confidence, Irwin says: “This ain’t over. It’s just getting started. I’m getting my belt back. Get ready for the rematch of the greatest fight in bare knuckle history.”

The usually soft-spoken Tanori didn’t mince words when it came to defending his title:  “They should have stopped the first with that big ass hematoma on his head. I’ll make sure he won’t feel much pain in this one. I’ll tuck him in and put him to sleep. One-punch KO. Like It happened in our first fight. Literally, the first punch to land.”

BYB Hall of Fame Matchmaker Mel Valenzuela also announced the co-main event matchup between BYB Lightweight Women’s Champion, Denver’s Paty Juarez, and Parker, Colorado’s Khortni Kamyron in a Super Lightweight non-title fight.
