Pulev was beaten by Joshua as he vyed for the heavyweight crown last year[/caption]
Topping the bill of this inaugural event is heavyweight boxing star Kubrat Pulev, who was last in the ring for his 2020 world title defeat against Anthony Joshua.
He will take on former MMA star and wrestler Frank Mir, who hasn’t been since his victory over Roy Nelson at Bellator 231 in 2019.
What are the rules?
In effect, the bouts will see a combination of boxing and MMA.
The fighters will wear MMA gloves and every clinch position is permitted.
All the punches in the book including hammerfists and spinning backfists are also allowed, so expect plenty of brutality.
Things that AREN’T allowed include kicks, elbows, takedowns, trips, footsweeps, headlocks and submissions.
Rounds will last for two minutes and in the case of Pulev vs Mir, the bout goes on their pro record.

What they said
Frank Mir: “I just make it everything but a boxing match.
“It’s too close to the fight to really worry about letting the cat out of the bag, but yeah, behind every punch, he’s not going to be able to throw combos.
“Every punch, I’m grabbing him afterwards, and then I’m going to work the clinch and just drag on him and really push his grappling cardio, which he doesn’t have to the experience that I do. It’s different.”
Kubrat Pulev: “So I don’t like to speak too much what I will do because you know this is like one little war.
“But for sure, I will be very, very heavy for him because I’m very combative.
“That’s why I’m prepared good, I have lot of power, and I feel great to fight with him because he’s also a great fighter and I respect him.”
