Fight Day is just another day at the office for Houston Alexander.
“The Assassin” doesn’t have any superstitions when it’s time to take care of business in the Squared Circle. The battle-tested Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship standout knows the key to victory is found in preparation.
“We’re just ready to go. I get a little antsy the day of the fight, but it’s a lot of time to relax. It’s just another day at the office and we’re out there having fun,” Alexander says.
“It’s a little weird, but we’ve gotten so used to fighting that fighting is easy.”
Alexander is ready to have some more fun at BKFC 43 on May 19 in his hometown of Omaha, NE. He looks to improve to 4-0 with a fourth straight KO under the BKFC banner against his toughest task yet, Jeremy “Pitbull” Smith (3-1, 2 KOs), in the Main Event, LIVE on The BKFC App.
Alexander, 51, has been Midwest combat sports royalty since his days in the UFC. The Liberty First Credit Union Arena will be packed with his fans, friends and family. He’s ready to put on a show for everyone watching, but he isn’t fazed by the prospect of throwing down in front of his closest acquaintances.
“At some point in time I don’t hear anybody except my coaches (Curlee Alexander and Joe Baudler), and the only person I see is the fighter standing across from me in the ring,” Alexander says.
“I’m not paying attention to anything by my opponent – I’m pretty zoned in.”
Alexander hopes for a quick victory over Smith, but he’s ready to push the pace for five full rounds. He isn’t sure where a victory will place him in the BKFC universe, so he’s just rolling with the punches.
“Winning solves everything,” he says. “If winning one fight at a time puts us in a better position down the line, then that’s cool with me.”
