Reigning BKFC champion Christine Ferea enters the weekend with a rematch against Bec Rodriguez at BKFC 56, and her only goal is to keep doing what she’s been doing in the bare-knuckle world. Since making the move to bare-knuckle boxing in 2018, Ferea has compiled a 7-1 record, with only one of those wins coming by way of decision, while her lone loss was also a decision.
Simply put, Ferea has been putting away the competition and cementing her legacy as one of, if not, the greatest woman bare-knuckle fighter to ever step inside the ring. After a brief run in MMA, Ferea made the move to bare-knuckle, where she’s undoubtedly found her calling. Since winning the title against Britain Hart back in 2022, the champion has gone on to defend her belt twice, with the most recent win coming by way of doctor stoppage. Although there was some controversy regarding the stoppage and how the fight was going, the champion plans to put it all to rest on Saturday night.
While being a guest for the ‘On The Mic‘ podcast, Ferea discussed the rematch against Rodriguez, how she felt things were going in the fight, and her plans to be the greatest female to ever step inside the bare-knuckle boxing ring.
Having plans to not only beat Rodriguez, but do so decisively as she done so often in her bare-knuckle career, Ferea says she also will send her opponent down to the 115-pound division where she “has a better chance to become champion” according to the reigning champ.
Watch the video below to see the full interview with Christine Ferea, discussing how rivalries fuel her, her desire to be the greatest ever, and how she found her calling in the bare-knuckle combat space.
BKFC 56 goes down Saturday, December 2 from Salt Lake City, Utah, which will see former UFC fighters Mike Perry take on Eddie Alvarez in the ‘King of Violence’ main event.
