It’s official now, with a location and everything: Paulie Maligniaggi and Artem Lobov will headline Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship 6 on June 22 at Florida State Fairgrounds Entertainment Hall in Tampa, Fla.
But before the two heated rivals step inside the ring, they held a news conference on Monday at Dave & Buster’s in Times Square, and it went how you’d expect. Neither former boxing champion Malignaggi nor former UFC fighter Lobov had anything nice to say about each other. There was lots of swearing and lots of name-calling.
BKFC president David Feldman attempted to square off the fighters at the conclusion of the news conference. Malignaggi and Lobov faced off but had to be separated as they continuously jawed and pointed fingers at each other. Then Malignaggi spit on Lobov, and that was the end of it.
