Welcome to the BIGGEST Fight Week in BKFC history!

Sunday, Apr 21 2024 by BKFC Staff

It’s the BIGGEST Fight Week in Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship history.

BKFC, the world’s fastest growing combat sports promotion, breaks historic new ground this weekend with its hugely anticipated California debut. The must-see, can’t-miss KnuckleMania 4 is ready to blow the lid off the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles on Saturday, LIVE worldwide on The BKFC App.

All eyes in the combat sports world will be on Saturday’s Main Event as the undefeated BKFC King of Violence “Platinum” Mike Perry enters the Squared Circle against his toughest challenge yet, former BKFC World Champion Thiago “Pitbull” Alves. There’s no bigger star in the world of bare knuckle fighting than Perry, who will be trying to up his BKFC record to 5-0 with a third straight finish in the Squared Circle. Alves, who boasts a 2-0 record under the BKFC banner, is keen on stealing Perry’s immense spotlight. Perry has run through some of the biggest stars in combat sports during his electric run with BKFC, but it’s not hyperbolic to say that this is the BIGGEST fight in BKFC history.

More history is at stake in Saturday’s Co-Main Event as Lorenzo “The Juggernaut” Hunt tries to become the first fighter in BKFC history to hold three BKFC World Championships. Hunt currently holds BKFC World Titles in the light-heavyweight and cruiserweight divisions; on Saturday he challenges Mick Terrill for Terrill’s BKFC World Heavyweight Championship. Simply put, Hunt is the most dominant fighter in BKFC history. His 10-1 record is tops all time among BKFC fighters and places him atop the BKFC Pound-for-Pound Rankings. No fighter in BKFC history has more wins (10) and finishes (eight) than Hunt. This weekend, he’ll look to become the first fighter in BKFC history to win 10 consecutive fights. But it won’t come easy against Terrill, who dethroned Arnold Adams with a fourth-round finish in December. Terrill is the proud owner of some of the heavyweight hands to ever grace the Squared Circle; his 3-1 record is comprised entirely of stoppages. It’s no secret that these big men aren’t fans of one another, so Saturday night can’t come soon enough.

Batten down the hatches; two more of the most powerful heavyweights in combat sports will lock horns in a hugely anticipated grudge match in Saturday’s Feature Fight. MMA legends “Big” Ben Rothwell and Todd Duffee were supposed to do battle in December, but Rothwell had to withdraw due to illness on fight week. Both goliaths have fired shots at each other since their postponed showdown – now there’s nothing standing between them and destiny on Saturday evening in Los Angeles. 

KnuckleMania 4 is stacked from top to bottom. 

Mexican boxing sensation Alfredo “Perro” Angulo, a former champ with the World Boxing Association and World Boxing Organization, makes his hotly anticipated BKFC debut against fan-favorite Jeremiah “Big Rig” Riggs, who’s coming off a 49-second KO victory in the Main Event of BKFC’s debut in Canada. Crystal "Rugged Beauty" Pittman eyes her second straight stoppage victory against her toughest test yet, Sydney "Sundance" Smith. Russian powerhouse Evgeny “The Sailor” Kurdanov tries to up his bare knuckle record to 5-1 against fellow fan-favorite Julian "Let Me Bang" Lane, who will be making his 10th trip to the Squared Circle on Saturday. A dark horse contender for Fight-of-the-Night honors is the lightweight clash between Andrew Angelcor (3-0-1) and Ruben “Bad Boy” Warr (1-0).

All this and MUCH more goes down Saturday at KnuckleMania 4, LIVE worldwide on The BKFC App from the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles.
