Lobov: I Want To Hurt Malignaggi Extra Hard - For Everyone!

This Saturday night, in the main event of Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship 6, former two division world champion Paulie Malignaggi will collide with UFC veteran Artem Lobov in a bare knuckle fight.

The tension for the fight has been red hot.

Malignaggi slapped Lobov in the face at one media event, and then spit in his face in a more recent media function.

In a recent interview, Malignaggi even stated that he would have spit in the face of Lobov's mother.

And for that, Lobov has promised to do a lot of damage on Malignaggi in the fight.

“It ticks all the boxes for me except one,” Artem Lobov said to The Mac Life. “I always seek the highest challenge, the biggest challenge. I always look to truly challenge myself. When I was in the UFC I challenged some of the biggest guys in the world. When I was fighting in Europe I did the same. Anywhere I was, I always seek the hardest challenge. I win some, I lose some but I always take the hardest challenge.

“This is not the case this time, this is personal, this is about settling a score. This is about punishing someone that’s done a lot of wrongs. Somebody that’s been running his mouth a bit too much, somebody that’s been behaving like an animal, not like a human. Somebody that’s been so disrespectful on so many levels. I have to make this right, that’s what this is about.

“I want to hurt this guy extra hard, I want to punish this guy extra long. I want to play with this guy as much as I want,” he said. “I want to get him for everything that he has said. I want to get him for everything that he has done — not just for me, but for everyone around the world.”

1) I will not root for Malignaggi despite me being 100x more pro-boxing than MMA. He has disgraced boxing, sporting, and humanity itself. And has been long before this. 2) If this whole thing isn't just a WWE scam to…

[QUOTE=Scopedog;19843608]Honestly yeah, I’m rooting for him to do just that. Paulie’s behaviour has been pathetic- it’s like he’s trying to work from the trash talk playbooks of Duran and Mayorga, only those two were hard men who fought toe to…

Boxing fans support Paulie in that fight, MMA reject Lobov hopefully will be the one hurt extra hard.

Paulie would have to be super shot to lose this. Artem is tough but has no skill at all. I fully expect Paulie to light him up especially as it is just 10 minutes and he knows Conor will probably…
