Artem Lobov will be making his bare knuckle boxing debut next month (Sat. April 6, 2019).
“The Russian Hammer” faces off against fellow former UFC fighter Jason Knight under the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC)
Speaking to BJPenn.com recently, Lobov said his performance at BKFC will be a preview for what he has in store for Malignaggi:
“April 6th, please tune in and see for yourself, and treat this as a little preview for what I have in store for Paulie Malignaggi,” Lobov said. This is fight [with Knight], I will burst through this guy, literally.
“Choo Choo motherf***er. The Siberian Express is on its way. So I will burst through this guy April 6th, and then down the line I want Paulie Malignaggi. This is the fight that I’m really after.”
