BKFC’s David Feldman Talks About Importance Of Upcoming KnuckleMania 4 Show In LA

Earlier this year, BKFC, the California Athletic Commission, announced they were legalizing bare-knuckle boxing for the first time.

Immediately after the announcement, BKFC president David Feldman announced that BKFC would hold their annual “KnuckleMania” in Los Angeles.

On Wednesday, Feldman and BKFC held a press conference in LA to promote KnuckleMania 4’s main event, Mike Perry vs. Thiago Alves.

During the event, Feldman spoke about the importance of BKFC’s upcoming show in California.

“It took us a while to get bare knuckle fighting regulated and legal here in California. We’ve got a great relationship with the commissioner, Andy Foster, and he’s welcomed us with open arms. This is going to be an amazing event. The buzz, the ticket sales, the interest around this event has all been historic for us. We’re so excited to be in Los Angeles.”

“We’re building this sport from the ground up and from the top down. From the ground up, we’re doing tryouts and smaller shows around the world. We’re doing fights in nine different countries this year, so we’re expanding globally. From the top down, we’re bringing in world champions from boxing and MMA so they can bring their fans over to see the baddest sport on the planet. This is the most exciting combat sport on the planet, hands down.”

“We have some very special signings that we’re going to announce at KnuckleMania IV, we’re certainly going to have some surprises there.”
