David Mundell is ready to make his run.
On Saturday, he won his third straight fight with a fifth-round TKO over David Simpson at BKFC Fight Night: Tampa 2, LIVE on the BKFC app. With the win in Tampa, FL, he improved to 5-1 in the Squared Circle.
After three impressive victories in less than a year, Mundell has his sights set on the top of the BKFC light-heavyweight division.
“If they can’t get me an immediate title shot (against Lorenzo Hunt), I want to fight in a title eliminator right away,” said a fired-up Mundell, the No. 1 BKFC light-heavyweight contender.
“Right now the goal is to go in there and take (the belt). It would mean a lot, and it would only be the beginning.”
Mundell left the Squared Circle on Saturday with a mostly clean bill of health. But a cut he sustained during the fight triggered an automatic 60-day suspension from competition.
“I’ve got two months to do my own thing and train,” he said. “After that, whenever they want to set it up, I’ll be ready.”
