Jared Warren ready to rinse a bad taste out of his mouth in Tampa

Tuesday, Jul 05 2022 by BKFC Staff

Jared Warren is eager to rinse a bad taste out of his month.

In his last fight, in the BKFC 23 Co-Main Event in April, Warren dropped a razor-close majority decision to Isaac Doolittle. 

“I’m not one to complain or be a sore loser, but the decision from my last fight definitely left a bad taste in my mouth,” admitted Warren, who dropped to 3-2 in BKFC action with the loss.

“In my mind, I’m 4-1.” 

Luckily for Warren, his shot at redemption is rapidly approaching.

The former amateur world kickboxing champ hunts for his fourth first-round BKFC knockout victory against undefeated light-heavyweight challenger JoMi Escoboza (7-0) in the Co-Main Event of BKFC Fight Night Tampa 2 on July 23, LIVE on the BKFC app.

At 6-foot-1, Warren is taller than the majority of his opponents. That won’t be the case when he takes on the rangy, 6-foot-4 Escoboza. 

Warren makes just one prediction heading into fight night.

“This one isn’t going to a decision. I got that out of my system with my last fight, and it’s not going to happen again,” Warren said. “It’s finish or bust; that’s the only way I want to win.”
