Ricky Hatton, a former opponent of Paulie Malignaggi, speaks with The Mac Life about Malignaggi's June 22 blockbuster BKFC 6 fight against Artem Lobov.
“I was quite surprised,” Hatton said. “When you think of bare knuckle you think toe-to-toe, having it out, a bit of a slugfest. Paulie’s style was more boxing skills, hand-speed, so I was quite surprised really. He’s a bright lad, he must know what he’s doing.”
The main card for this can't-miss night of fights will begin at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT and will see former UFC veteran Chris Leben in his second BKFC attraction, as he takes on Dakota Cochrane. Plus, the finals of the BKFC Lightweight Tournament will pit Reggie Barnett against Johnny Bedford in a showdown for the BKFC Lightweight Championship. All leading up to the main event pitting former boxing world champion Paulie "The Magic Man" Malignaggi against UFC veteran Artem "The Russian Hammer" Lobov.
The event will be broadcast across the United States and Canada, exclusively on pay-per-view through MultiVision Media, Inc., on all major television distribution outlets for $39.99. It will also be available worldwide via stream to all in-home and out-of-home connected devices at FITE-TV and www.bareknuckle.tv.
Tickets for "BKFC 6: The Line Is Drawn" are available now exclusively at www.bareknuckle.tv. Florida will become the latest state to host a BKFC event after previous contests have been held in Wyoming and Mississippi, plus an event that took place in Cancun, Mexico.
