Ben Rothwell and Todd Duffee squared off in a Heavyweight contest earlier tonight (Sat. April 27, 2024) from Peacock Theater in Los Angeles, California for BKFC: Knucklemania 4.

It didn’t last long.

Rothwell advanced behind a high guard, showing Duffee his elbow. Before long, Rothwell fired a heavy combination, flooring Duffee in the opening 30 seconds with a straight punch. As soon as Duffee was back on his feet, Rothwell floored him a second time. Duffee wasn’t able to continue, handing Rothwell a knockout win inside a minute.

The problem came when the slow-motion replays started airing. What the heck did Rothwell actually land? The second knockdown didn’t demonstrate any clear connection, as the most significant impact came when Duffee hit his head on the canvas falling backwards a second time. Per Duffee, his shoulder was injured from the fall(s), and he opted not to continue.

It sure felt like Duffee quit after “Big Ben’s” first land.

Rothwell took the mic afterward and was pissed! He wanted a dramatic knockout or statement win, and instead his moment disappeared before it ever really started. It’s still a win, but will Rothwell receive the next Heavyweight title shot? There’s no guarantee because of the weirdness.

Result: Ben Rothwell defeats Todd Duffee via first-round knockout
