BKFC 6: The world will (literally) be watching Paulie Malignaggi v. Artem Lobov
Combat sports fans in the United States will be waiting with anticipation as we are so close to Paulie Malignaggi v. Artem Lobo in a bare-knuckle boxing bout. Taking place inside the Florida State Fairgrounds Expo Hall in Tampa, Florida, BKFC 6 will be broadcasted on a number of platforms in the United States. Now, another part of the world will be getting a chance to watch what is sure to be a violent affair.
BKFC has teamed up with Premier Sports, a U.K.-exclusive streaming service. The platforms that are a part of Premier Sports include Sky and Virgin. The fight between Paulie and Artem will be watched by a program available in over 16 million homes. The cost to view the platform is £9.99 per month for new customers.
This is another huge win for BKFC, who teamed up with FITE.TV and local PPV stations to stream the fight for $39.99 in the United States.
Premier Player will be the best way to get access to all things BKFC.
What is at stake? A chance to watch Lobov (13-5-1, 1NC MMA) and Malignaggi (36-8 boxing) exact a measure of revenge against one another. In a fight expected to be bloody and not technical at all, a new audience will get a chance at seeing what BFKC is all about.
As BKFC continues to grow, the market of fans will as well. Having programming in the U.K. may help an eventual tour around the world come to fruition.
