Sparks fly at KnuckleMania 4 Press Confierence!

Thursday, Apr 25 2024 by BKFC Staff

Sparks flew at the final KnuckleMania 4 Pre-Fight Press Conference on Thursday at the legendary Peacock Theater in Los Angeles ahead of the historic event on Saturday, also at the Peacock Theater.

The star-studded KnuckleMania 4 – the biggest event in bare knuckle fighting history – is available Saturday via YouTube Pay Per View ($29.99), and free of charge to subscribers of The BKFC App. 

“Platinum” Mike Perry (4-0, 2 KO), The BKFC King of Violence

"I'm honored to be on top of the card of these crazy fights. All these fights are insane. I'm going to be watching these fights in the back and I'll be excited to perform myself. I've gotta steal the show. These guys are trying to steal the show from me, so I've gotta take it up a notch at the end of the night."

"If it ain't broke, don't try to fix it. I've been on the same path all this time since I got here, and that's putting my knuckles up against people's faces. They call, they offer me a name, I say yes to it, and we prepare. I think I've had a tough selection of fights in bare knuckle, which is why I can have that designation as the face of bare knuckle, and that's why I'm on top of the card."

“I’ve been saying it for years – the next one is the best one, and this is the best one. I’ve been climbing, every fight has been better than the last and it’s always been against a tougher opponent. He was a BKFC Champion, but I don’t think he’s ever beat a UFC Champion, and I did. I think he’s bringing it, and I can’t wait to meet him in the middle on Saturday.”

Thiago “Pitbull” Alves (2-0, 1 KO), former BKFC World Champion

"I prepared my mind, my body – I'm ready to go. You'll see it."

“It was the Mike Perry name and the money (that brought me back).”

Lorenzo “The Juggernaut” Hunt (10-1, 8 KO), BKFC World Light-Heavyweight Champion and BKFC World Cruiserweight Champion

"I feel great. I'm the best that's ever done it. I'm already the GOAT. I'm not sure if you pay attention to the numbers, but I've got more fights and more wins than everybody else up here combined. There's no (expletive) way that I should be up here on the 'B side.' I've bled for this; teeth, blood, bones."

"I am the show. I'm not the face of bare knuckle, as they keep telling me; I'm the knuckles of bare knuckle."

"After I become the three-division World Champion, I will allow the other divisions to crown new champions. For now, I'll let them breathe"

"When I came to this organization, I came through the tryouts. I knew for a fact how I would be and how it would go. I told everybody, but they didn't believe me. After I become the triple World Champ, I'll grab the mic and I'll say, 'Do you (expletive) believe me now?'"

Mick Terrill (3-1, 3 KO), defending BKFC World Heavyweight Championship

"I think the thing with Lorenzo is; I think he's well suited back at school. He's got the mentality of a 10 year old. I think he'd be more suited there."

“Big” Ben Rothwell (2-0, 2 KO), former MMA star

"I love this company. David Feldman and the BKFC staff are trail blazers. They're making history. Each one of these events are historic, and I want to be a part of it. I'm out here to perform and set my place in BKFC history."

Todd Duffee (BKFC debut), former MMA star

"I'm going to go out and make history on Saturday night."

Alfredo “Perro” Angulo (BKFC debut), former WBO and WBA gloved boxing champion

“I’m very excited to be a part of BKFC. You guys are going to see a spectacular performance on Saturday. You’re going to see what it means to be a Mexican bare knuckle fighter.”

“When I got the offer (from BKFC), it was like a new life. I was born to fight. When I got this offer, I was awakened. Saturday night, ‘The Dog’ is coming out to fight.” 

David Feldman, BKFC Founder/President

"Are you guys not (expletive) excited? This is (expletive) unbelievable. First of all, I want to thank Andy Foster and the California state athletic commission. I want to thank him for welcoming us with open arms to California. From Hollywood, Florida to Hollywood, California, we are (expletive) here. I want to thank my team. My team is incredible. They work tirelessly; 18 hours a day, seven days a week. I love you guys and it's all about to pay the (expletive) off.”

"I just want to say thank you to the fighters. Without you guys, we wouldn't be here. You bleed for us, you risk your life for us day in and day out. Thank you to the fighters, thank you to the sponsors. Let's (expletive) go. Saturday, April 27, let's (expletive) go."

“(BKFC is close to being legislated) everywhere. There’s really no reason for anyone to say no to this sport anymore. We didn't just create a promotion or a sport; we created a phenomenon. When we started this thing, the media wasn’t writing about us. When we sell the kind of tickets we sell, and the kind of views we do, they can't say no to us anymore."
