BYB Extreme Bare Knuckle Fighting Series Founder and Combat Sport Pioneer Dada 5000 Invites Major League Baseball Brawlers Jose Ramirez and Tim Anderson to “Take off the Gloves and Stake their Claim as the New Mr. October in the Mighty Trigon”

MIAMI – In light of the recent “basebrawl” that resulted in the suspension of Chicago White Sox's Tim Anderson, Cleveland Guardians' Jose Ramirez, and four additional players, BYB Extreme Bare Knuckle Fighting Series Founder and combat sport pioneer Dhafir “Dada 5000” Harris has invited Ramirez and Anderson to settle their score in BYB’s mighty Trigon. Dada rose to fame from his staging of backyard bare knuckle fights, which went viral online and subsequently became the subject of the “Dawg Fight, a Netflix documentary by Billy Corbin.

“I’m not gonna lie.  As a guy who has been around combat sports for decades as a fighter, promoter, matchmaker, ref, you name it, I like the spark I saw in these guys.  You have some combat leagues and bare knuckle organizations that have these big bullpen-sized fighting surfaces that allow guys to dance around and evade confrontation.  Our Trigon is the exact opposite of that - the smallest fighting surface in combat sports with the tightest angles in the corners.  It forces combatants to engage.  With Anderson and Ramirez, those fellas didn’t need that prompting.  They put their heads down and their knuckles up and said “Let’s go!”  They were made for our sport.  Since baseball frowns upon their actions and went so far as to and suspended them, I think it’s only right that they get the chance to settle it the right way - in the Trigon and with me serving as the ref just like I used to do in the World Famous Greenhouse in West Perrine. In the likely chance neither team makes the playoffs, I want to personally invite them to face-off on our 10/21/23 card with the winner being crowned the New Mr. October. 

BYB 21 will take place October 21 in Rock Hill, South Carolina and will feature a rematch for the BYB Lightweight Title between champion Mark Irwin and Josh Oxendine, as well as a Heavyweight Title matchup between champ DJ Linderman and Rashad Coulter.  

The smallest fighting surface in combat sports, BYB Extreme’s patented three-sided “Trigon” ring features 60-degree angles that guarantee 180 degrees of adrenaline-filled matches, structured to entertain viewers. Fights are decided by the fighters and not the judges, with a 90% knock-out/finish rate.


Originating in South Florida with backyard legend Dada 5000, whose backyard fights gained worldwide popularity online, BYB was founded to harness the excitement of bare knuckle fighting into a more structured product for a wider, more mainstream audience. Since 2015, BYB has worked diligently to grow the reach of bare knuckle on both a domestic and international level, hosting events in Wyoming, Mississippi, Florida, South Carolina, London, and Dubai, and is continuing to work with athletic commissions throughout the United States globally to expand the fanbase growing sport of bare knuckle fighting.
