On paper, this event is headlined by the promotion’s first strawweight world championship fight and bolstered by several entertaining bouts.

OKBet Odds on BKFC 29
|Britain Hart Beltran||-205|
Originally, another fighter was supposed to face Beltran in this fight to determine the first BKFC strawweight world champion. BKFC Thailand strawweight champion Fani Peloumpi was set to knuckle down and toe the line, but COVID-related visa issues derailed that, allowing Sigala to step up.
Britain Hart Beltran’s BKFC 29 OKBet Betting Analysis
Beltran has one of the most impressive BKFC resumes on the team. She has previously competed for the BKFC flyweight world title, and her only defeats have come at the hands of Bec Rawlings (a loss she avenged in her most recent outing) and Christine Ferea (BKFC flyweight champion and number one women’s pound-for-pound fighter).
Beltran appears to be more at home at 115 pounds after carving out some memorable moments against larger opponents.
Beltran has one of the best fight IQs in the sport, and she hopes to leave this weekend with back-to-back wins and a world championship belt.
Charisa Sigala’s Opportunity to Make BKFC History
Sigala began her BKFC career on a two-fight losing streak, albeit to two top-five ranked flyweights in Taylor Starling and Pearl Gonzalez. She hasn’t lost since and has also found herself in a more natural weight category, dropping from 125 pounds like her opponent on Saturday night.
A victory here would be by far the most significant in Sigala’s bare-knuckle boxing career. However, the short notice dynamic, combined with Beltran’s depth of experience, makes the task difficult for her.
Tale of the Tape: BKFC 29
|Significant Wins||Jessica Link|
Finally, I see Beltran redeeming herself by succeeding in her second attempt at a Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship world title.
A pair of outcomes for Britain Hart Beltran are pretty close in value in terms of prop bets that present good value. Beltran winning by decision is worth +130, while Beltran winning by KO or TKO is worth +150. While Beltran has two finishes and this is a short-notice fight, Sigala has never been stopped in bare-knuckle boxing, and I believe her durability will carry her to the end of the fifth round in a largely one-sided fight.
In the BKFC 29 main event, I believe Beltran will win by decision to become the BKFC world champion.
Choose: Britain Hart Beltran (-205)
Josh Dyer vs. Joe Riggs
Riggs has a 4-2-1 bare-knuckle boxing record and was a former BKFC world title challenger. He made his bare-knuckle boxing debut in England, but has been with BKFC since his sophomore gloveless bout and first fought for them at BKFC 3.
Dyer has three wins and one loss in his bare-knuckle boxing career. He made his debut with Valor BK, his last three fights were under the BKFC banner, and he has a perfect finishing record. Riggs is the BKFC’s fifth-ranked light heavyweight contender, and Dyer is looking to build a name to potentially vault into the rankings.
For this co-headliner, I believe there are some prop bets that offer good value to potential betters. As opposed to winning on the judges’ scorecards, oddsmakers see a KO or TKO as the most likely path to victory for both (Riggs via knockout is +130, while Dyer via knockout is +180). In this match, I believe Dyer will prevail.
Josh Dyer is my choice (-105)
