The wait is over and everything is set to go for the most anticipated fight in the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship. The main event of the night features a former two-weight boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi (36-8) against formerUFC fighter Artem Lobov (13-15-1).
The heated rivalry between the two will finally explode tonight, as there was a lot of pushing, shoving and spitting, and most of all big-time trash talking.
The 39-years-old Malignaggi weighed-in at 70.2 kg while “The Russian Hammer” came in at 70.1 kg. The final face-off between the two was long with neither one of the fighters wanting to turn around to the cameras.
This will be Lobov’s second fight in the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship. In April the 32-years-old Russian from Ireland defeated Jason Knight.
“Magic Man”, on the other hand, hasn’t fought professionally since 2017 when he lost via KO to Sam Eggington.
