Furr chasing his 3rd straight Reno Rodeo Wrangler Bullfight title
RENO, Nev. – Kris Furr doesn’t want to believe there’s a target on his back, but the paint may already be dry.
Furr is the two-time reigning champion of the Wrangler Bullfight Tour stop at the prestigious Reno Rodeo, now celebrating its 100th year. He’ll attempt to defend his titles against five other elite men from Bullfighters Only. The bouts are broadcast nightly on the Wrangler Network.
