Video interview with Elvin Brito above
On Saturday, January 29th, History will be made in Jackson, Mississippi as Bare-Knuckle Fighting Championship will crown their inaugural welterweight champion.
The trailblazing promotion for bare knuckle fighting is just a mere 3+ years into business and has produced an astounding number of action-packed cards, fights, and some of the most decorated athletes in the world.
With two consecutive wins after his first barnburner of a bout with Kaleb Harris, Elvin “El Bandido” Brito and Harris are set to face off, once again. This time with a lot higher stakes as the pair is set to square off for the vacant BKFC welterweight title.
This title matchup comes off of the heels of a brawl outside of the ring at a recent BKFC live event. “Platinum” Mike Perry was guest commentating when Julian Lane taunted Perry during a live broadcast. Lane was scheduled to face Kaleb Harris at that particular point in time but when Perry took Lanes bait, a brawl broke out which resulted in Julian Lanes suspension and a matchup between Lane and Perry was inevitable to be booked further down the road (KnuckleMania 2).
Brito, on the other hand, isn’t much for theatrics. Instead, preferring to let his fighting do the talking for him. He is currently riding a 3-fight win streak, continues evolving in every fight and the young promotion (BKFC) needs a worthy welterweight champion. Win, lose or draw, Brito shows up to scrap in every fight he’s taken part in.
“I’m the kind of guy that feeds off my opponent. I always try to manipulate his psychology, so it really depends on what fight Kaleb is bringing to me but I’m going to be prepared for anything that he brings,” Brito acknowledges. However, he fully realizes he has to “finish Kaleb. I have to beat him undeniably,” Brito elaborates.
