     On July 2nd of 2018 Felony took on James Freeman in an MMA bout at the Island Fights promotion based in Pensacola, FL. Felony hit freeman across the head with his right knuckle and caused a small fracture (shown in x-ray photo). Meanwhile Felony was making big moves and had signed to fight with the BKFC (Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship).
     Felony made his bare knuckle boxing debut two months later on August 25th with his already injured finger. He didn't realize his finger was broken until well after the Island Fights event was over, and without health insurance he toughed it out and fulfilled his obligation to fight at BKFC2.  He severely injured his finger even further during the fight and subsequently suffered from a "boxer's fracture" break in the other hand while pushing through the event. 
   Due to the hard times Felony has fallen financially. He made one more go in MMA with his injured hands on 12/01/18 which i cornered him for.  The fight didn't go our way. 
Felony is suffering from Chronic Mallet Finger along with a severe bacterial infection inside the bone which can eventually become deadly if left untreated. 
His other manager Jason and I were able to get him subsidized insurance and start the process of getting him treated. It is a VERY expensive procedure that insurance will cover a good portion of, but not all...
     Please donate to this GoFundMe campaign to help get our beloved & favorite 'Felony' back on his feet swinging and provide the treatment he urgently needs. We all love seeing him fight and being the hilarious guy he is on his YouTube channel. https://YouTube.com/FelonyCharlesBennett .
         Funds will help pay for the upfront costs for surgery, heavy antibiotic regimen, physical therapy, medications, and subsequent medical bills to come that are not covered by insurance. 
You can also donate and help by purchasing merchandise from his Teespring shop listed above if you would like something in return. https://teespring.com/stores/felony352

Charles is a loving father of four children Jovanney, Daisha Marie, "Stone", & Charles Bennett iii. 

Thanks & love you all,
    - Jon

Hello everyone,

I wanted to provide an update on Felony’s condition. Unfortunately, His finger became infected again despite completing the 6-week antibiotic IV drip treatment. He called me last week and told me he needed to go to the hospital because his finger became swollen and in pain again. (Picture and video are from his YouTube channel when he had to check back into the ER)

We were hoping he would be able to fight again by this summer & get himself back on track, but it looks like he’s going to need much more time to heal as his doctors are still trying to figure out what more is needed.

Please keep him in your prayers for a speedy recovery. As always, any bit of support wether it be a share or a additional donation will go a long way for him.

Thank you all,

Jon

Hello all,

Upfront, I would like to thank everyone for their support for our beloved & favorite ‘Felony’. He is extremely greatful for all the fans & fellow fighters that offering him help through this tough time.

I also would like to give everyone a bit of transparency in regards to the campaign. As one of his managers, I will be withdrawing the donations in my name and appropriating the funds towards his medical expenses & bills.

There was a large down payment required for his surgery upfront that we couldn’t collect in time. Thankfully we were able to have the hospital still go through on the surgery and agreed on a payment plan to be set up for him. He only had $20 in his pocket when he checked in.

Right now Felony is being driven back home from the Orlando Health Clinic after starting his first day of the 6-week antibiotic IV drip regimen (I apologize in the last update I said 60-day, it is in fact 6-weeks). The clinic would like a good faith payment to continue his IV treatment. The donations accumulated so far that I will be withdrawing are going directly towards that.

Thank you all again for your support and kind words. Please keep Felony in your prayers during his treatment and help spread the word & share as much as you can during this tough time. Every little bit helps him.

If anyone has any questions I am more than open to speaking. You can email me directly at jhamill99@gmail.com

Kind Regards,

Jon Hamill

Thank you for all the support so far everyone. Every donation, share, like, etc has been very helpful. Felony’s wound was diagnosed as being Septic. He will be starting a 60 day antibiotic Iv drip regimen on Monday that has to be treated every day. He is very lucky to be alive. Special thanks to the professionals at Orlando Health Orothoedic Clinic that saved his life.

God Bless,

- J
