Jon Moxley set for Josh Barnett's Bloodsport 2020

A year after it was originally supposed to happen, AEW World Champion Jon Moxley is making his Josh Barnett's Bloodsport in-ring debut.

Barnett announced tonight that Moxley will be in action at Josh Barnett's Bloodsport 2020. The show is taking place at the Marion County Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, Indiana on Sunday, October 11 and is part of Game Changer Wrestling's The Collective. The show will be available live via Fite TV.

Moxley's opponent for Bloodsport 2020 hasn't been announced. He was supposed to face Barnett at Josh Barnett's Bloodsport II in September 2019, but Moxley had to miss the show due to a serious case of MRSA in his elbow. Moxley tweeted to Barnett at the time that they were going to "get this one back." They were again set to face each other at Bloodsport earlier this year before the show was rescheduled.

Josh Alexander, Homicide, Deonna Purrazzo, Calvin Tankman, Chris Dickinson, "Grizzly" Kal Jak, Lindsay Snow, Erik Hammer, and Killer Kelly have also been announced for Bloodsport 2020. Matches can only be won via knockout or submission.

Bloodsport 2020 and The Collective were originally supposed to take place in Tampa, Florida over WrestleMania weekend this April, but the events had to be rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Face masks are required for those attending the shows and they're being done at a reduced capacity with a staggered seating chart.
