Jon Moxley vs. Josh Barnett set for April's GCW Bloodsport 6


Much like when certain UFC fights keep falling through, GCW is going to try to make the Jon Moxley vs. Josh Barnett match happen once again at Bloodsport.

At the end of Saturday's Bloodsport 5 following Moxley's main event victory over Davey Boy Smith Jr., Barnett's voice could be heard saying, “Jon Moxley is always searching the world for fights to make him feel truly alive." Barnett then said the match more than a year in the making will happen at Bloodsport 6 on Thursday, April 8th at The Cuban Club in Tampa, Florida. The show will feature live fans and be held during WrestleMania weekend as part of GCW's The Collective.

The two were originally set to square off in September 2019, but a MRSA infection in Moxley's elbow put that on the shelf. It was then rescheduled for WrestleMania weekend last year, but didn't happen due to the pandemic shutting everything down.

Barnett is 1-0-1 in Bloodsport action, going to a draw with Minoru Suzuki in April 2019 and knocking Chris Dickinson out in September 2019. Moxley defeated Dickinson in his October Bloodsport debut.
