Are BKFC pros picking Mike Perry or Thiago Alves at KnuckleMania?

Wednesday, Apr 24 2024 by BKFC Staff

Sports fans around the world are counting down the seconds until KnuckleMania 4 on Saturday, when “Platinum” Mike Perry and Thiago “Pitbull” Alves collide in the most anticipated fight in BKFC history, LIVE worldwide on The BKFC App. There’s no bigger star in bare knuckle fighting than Perry, who’s undefeated in his first four trips to the Squared Circle. He’s looking to score his third straight stoppage victory against his toughest challenge yet, the undefeated former BKFC World Champion Alves.

Before this must-see Main Event rocks the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles, we asked for fight night predictions from some of BKFC’s biggest stars. 

James “Get Down” Brown: We love Alves, but I just don’t see him coming back after three years and winning versus an active Perry. Perry, third-round TKO.

Zach “Shark Attack” Calmus: Mike Perry will win in the third round. He is the dominating force at BKFC. 

Noah Cutter: I'd pick Mike Perry over Thiago, probably by stoppage.

Michael “Papa G” Larrimore: I expect an absolute war between Mike Perry and Thiago Alves. That’s any man’s fight and Mike better keep that damn chin tucked! 

Wayna “The Rated R Superstar” Reid: I’m going with “Platinum” Mike on this one. Mike has shown he can take a punch and can deliver one himself. Not to mention he’s the King of Violence, but he’s a very sturdy fighter and he has a chin.

“Royal” Ryan Reber: I’ve got Alves in the Main Event. I think his skill set will take care of Perry. 

JR “The Lion” Ridge: Mike Perry by split decision. I think Thiago may have a lil’ ring rust. All in all, it’s going to be an exciting fight.

Esteban “Mohawk” Rodriguez: Man, Mike Perry is going to show the world why he's the King of Violence. 

Gabrielle “Jersey’s Warrior Princess” Roman: I’m picking Mike Perry.

Crystal “The Lovely” Van Wyk: This is such a good matchup, with both fighters coming from MMA backgrounds and neither afraid to stand and exchange. I think Mike Perry is the more experienced and active fighter. He’s also extremely tough, so he takes the win. 

Jared "Captain Deadpool" Warren: I’m picking Perry over Alves. Perry has been on a roll over some big names. Alves has been inactive for a few years, and one of his only two bare knuckle fights was very controversial over Julian Lane. I thought Julian won that fight.
