Jordi Requejo took the title via first-round TKO against Stefan Meszaros last May. The Spanish kickboxer is making his second appearance in the headliner of BFS, following his bout against Mickael Pignolo in March 2019.

Christian Berthely was last seen in action last March when he scored a unanimous decision against Altynbek Zhunusov and retained his WKN Intercontinental super welterweight title. The French fighter earned the belt by knockout in the first round against Nordine Saidane in November 2016.

The co-main event features a newly-crowned WKN European super middleweight champion Samuel Dbili making the first defense of his title against a yet to be named challenger. The representative of the country-host took the strap by split decision against Branko Babachev last month.

In addition, BFS 2 Nimes features WKN World Grand Prix contested in the format of 75 kg four-man knockout tournament. The roster includes local Jeremy Antonio, Belgian Soufiane Ait Ouccime, Latvian Janis Ziedins and American Omar Moreno.
