Jon Moxley, the current IWGP United States Champion will take on Davey Boy Smith Junior at Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport 5 on February 20th.

Announcing the match on Twitter with a video featuring Moxley, the former AEW World Champion states that he has targeted Smith as he is the “toughest out in Bloodsport.”

Moxley then goes on to say what he wants to do to Smith, in what is sure to be a violent encounter:

“I’m gonna rip his head off and put it on my wall.”

Jon Moxley made his Bloodsport debut at GCW Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport 3 in October 2020. He would defeat Chris Dickinson in the middle of the no-rope ring by choking him out following a ‘paradigm shift’ DDT. On that same night, Davey Boy Smith Jr. would defeat former IMPACT Wrestling Tag Team Champion, Josh Alexander by knockout.

Smith has competed on every edition of Bloodsport, remaining undefeated with four wins. As well as Alexander, Smith has defeated Killer [Karrion] Kross, ‘Filthy’ Tom Lawlor, and most recently Calvin Tankman at Bloodsport 4.

Jon Moxley has been extremely busy since leaving WWE in 2019. He has held the AEW World Championship as well as the IWGP US Championship, wrestling for both AEW New Japan Pro-Wrestling. He also took part in the grueling G1 Climax tournament in 2019. Moxley will be defending his IWGP US Championship against KENTA 6 days after meeting Smith at The New Beginning USA.

Smith is a former WWE Tag Team Champion as well as a 3-time IWGP Tag Team Champion with recent Moxley ally, Lance Archer.
