Jon Moxley to face Josh Barnett at Bloodsport


As was promised when their match fell through last year, a new date has been set for Jon Moxley vs. Josh Barnett.

It was announced tonight that Moxley vs. Barnett will happen at Josh Barnett's Bloodsport III over WrestleMania week. The show is taking place at The Cuban Club in Tampa, Florida on Thursday, April 2.

Moxley vs. Barnett was supposed to headline Barnett's Bloodsport II in September 2019, but Moxley had to be pulled from the show due to the MRSA infection he had in his elbow. It also forced Moxley to miss his scheduled match against Kenny Omega at All Out.

Moxley sent a tweet to Barnett telling him they're "gonna get this one back" after their original match fell through. Barnett defeated Chris Dickinson at Barnett's Bloodsport II.

Bloodsport is being put on by Game Changer Wrestling and Barnett. Matches are hybrid MMA/pro wrestling style, have no ropes, and can only be won by knockout or submission.

Jeff Cobb has also been announced for April's Bloodsport show.
