Minoru Suzuki vs. Chris Dickinson set for Josh Barnett's Bloodsport III


After headlining two of the previous events, Minoru Suzuki is returning to Bloodsport.

It was announced tonight that Suzuki will face Chris Dickinson at Josh Barnett's Bloodsport III. The show is taking place at The Cuban Club in Tampa, Florida on April 2, which is the Thursday of WrestleMania week.

After Low Ki pulled out of Matt Riddle's Bloodsport in 2018, Suzuki replaced him and defeated Riddle in the main event. Suzuki and Josh Barnett then went to a time limit draw at Josh Barnett's Bloodsport I over WrestleMania week last year.

Dickinson is also a previous Bloodsport headliner. Barnett defeated Dickinson in the main event of Josh Barnett's Bloodsport II last September, with that match being made after Jon Moxley had to miss the show due to the MRSA infection he had in his elbow.

Barnett vs. Moxley will now take place at Josh Barnett's Bloodsport III. Jeff Cobb and Davey Boy Smith Jr. have also been confirmed for the show, though their opponents haven't been revealed.

Bloodsport features hybrid MMA-style pro wrestling matches that have no ropes and can only be won by knockout or submission.
