The Tingley Coliseum is located at 300 San Pedro Dr. NE, Albuquerque, New Mexico, 87108. BKFC-59 will also be broadcast internationally as part of the BKFC+ Subscription for $7.99 per month on the BKFC App – The Best Value in Combat Sports and is sponsored by Forged Irish Stout, Bucked Up, Grunt Style, Fubo Sports, MIT 45, Only Fans and Crescent Tools.


“We love promoting events in Albuquerque whether it’s the huge shows at the Tingley Coliseum or our tremendous sold-out BKFC Prospect Series event this past Friday night at the Revel,” said David Feldman, President and Founder of BKFC. “The deep local talent pool of great bare-knuckle fighters and the overwhelming support we’ve received from local fans over the last two years makes Albuquerque one of the very best cities for BKFC.”

“John Dodson has looked sensational in his first three BKFC fights but Dagoberto Aguero is a tough and talented Dominican with an impressive professional boxing record and he made a remarkably impressive showing in his BKFC debut in November. “


“As our two previous events at Tingley Coliseum have sold-out, I strongly encourage fans to purchase tickets in advance to ensure entry on fight night.”


Following an acclaimed MMA career in the UFC and with other international promotions, John Dodson made his BKFC debut with a first-round stoppage of Ryan Benoit at BKFC-28 on August 27, 2022. He followed that up with two additional first round knockouts; Jarod Grant at Knucklemania 3 and JR Ridge at BKFC-48, the latter earning him the inaugural BKFC Flyweight World Title. All three fights took place in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
