VanZant, 26, confirmed the fight on Instagram and wrote: “February 5th. There will be blood. @bareknucklefc link in bio.”

Hart, 30, has boxed 11 times as a professional, with a record of 4-4-3.

She made her BKBFC debut in 2018 but was beaten, since earning a losing record of 1-2.

BKBFC president David Feldman told MMAFighting: “Britain’s a real tough girl – she’s skilled, but she’s not the best technical boxer in the world

“Paige isn’t going to have to chase her down.

“It’s going to be competitive, but I think it’s going to be a good opponent choice for Paige on her first event.

“[Paige is] getting paid very well, and I don’t think we could have thrown her somebody that never fought bare-knuckle before, or at least someone that had a pretty well-established record.

“I don’t think the fans would have liked that. We’re going to give the fans what they want.”

VanZant will kick off her bare-knuckle career two days before the Super Bowl, which is currently scheduled for February 7 at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

As a result, the promotion are hoping to steal some attention from the NFL finale coverage before the fight.

VanZant signed for BKBFC after her UFC contract expired, as she walked away with an 8-5 MMA record.
