The action delivered on arrival last night (Sat., June 22, 2019) at Bare Knuckle FC 6 live on FITE.TV pay-per-view (PPV) from Tampa, Florida, as former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) headliner Artem Lobov outlasted former boxing world champion Paulie Malignaggi in a somewhat controversial unanimous decision win.
While the main event grudge match didn’t produce a decisive finish or incredibly-exciting melee, Malignaggi and Lobov did enough to please fight fans everywhere. In the end, despite his efforts to avoid big strikes and counter with crisp jabs and head movement, “Magic Man” was unable to contain the pressure of Lobov and eventually gave up the final three rounds on the judges’ scorecards.
