The highly anticipated blood bath between the former two-weight boxing world champion Pauli Malignaggi and former UFC fighter Artem Lobov is finally getting a location.
Both guys are part of the current roster of the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship. David Feldman, the President of BKFC confirmed that they will face each other in New Hampshire on June 22. Feldman stated an exact venue or city has not yet been set, but Manchester is in the running.
Days before the fight between Lobov and Knight, Malignaggi and “The Russian Hammer” got into a scuffle at a Bare Knuckle FC media day in New York. Malignaggi slapped Lobov in the face during a staredown. Lobov said at the time there would be no retaliation.
