Interview with Quentin Henry above
Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship is closing in on its third anniversary. As they gear for their 15th event, the reception is growing astoundingly.
BKFC: KnuckleMania invades Tampa, Florida in under 2 weeks. With a stacked card from top to bottom, fans are particularly clamoring for the scheduled retirement bout between Chris “The Crippler” Leben and rising star and hard-hitting, Quentin “The Hero” Henry.
Henry, 2-0 in the squared circle with 2 first-round jaw-dropping knockouts, has a wealth of experience in combat sports. Between MMA, boxing, and now bare-knuckle fighting, “The Hero” feels he’s found the sport that suits him best.
“I think for my particular skill set, the things that I feel I’m very good at,” Henry says, “just fit right into Bare Knuckle.” Elaborating, “My style is made for this!”
Interestingly enough, the combat sports legend, Leben asked specifically who called for Henry in his retirement bout. A request that Henry takes as a sign of respect, opposed to a call out.
“At the end of the day, Chris Leben called me out because he knows I’m the best,” Henry says. As far as Henry’s concern, “him doing that just legitimizes me,” he explains.
Riding the momentum of 2 spectacular knockouts, “The Hero” says he’s ready “to come out here and look like a different animal in this fight.” Doubling down with, “And I want it to look like when I’m done, I deserve that belt and there’s no one that says I don’t!”
When the bell rings and it’s time to “Knuckle up”, Henry’s convinced “it won’t go past the first round,” he says. In that time frame of bare-knuckle action, Henry presents one of his infamous “Hero; One-Liners,” stating “He’s (Leben) coming to fight for one (round) and I’m coming to fight for one (round)! So, I’m gonna give him 205 pounds of hard dick for that first round!”
