Davey Boy Smith Jr., 'Filthy' Tom Lawlor announced for Bloodsport


The third edition of Josh Barnett's Bloodsport saw several new names added over the last few days including two men that faced off against each other at last year's event.

Barnett announced Monday that Davey Boy Smith Jr. will return for the third time and try to remain a perfect 3-0. The news follows Sunday's announcement that former UFC light heavyweight and current PFL fighter "Filthy" Tom Lawlor will also return for action.

Smith and Lawlor faced each other at the second Bloodsport with Smith picking up a knockout win. This will be Lawlor's second Bloodsport as he was part of the inaugural Matt Riddle version and submitted by WALTER.

Barnett also announced Sunday that longtime wXw veteran Alexander James will make his Bloodsport debut.

The three men join a lineup that includes Barnett, AEW World Champion Jon Moxley, Impact Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo, Homicide, Killer Kelly, Chris Dickinson, Calvin Tankman, Josh Alexander, Erik Hammer, Lindsay Snow and Kal Jak. No matchups have been announced as of yet.

The event is scheduled for Sunday, October 11th as part of GCW's rescheduled The Collective weekend in Indianapolis, IN, originally slated for the canceled WrestleMania weekend in Tampa, Florida.
