Artem Lobov will make his return to bare-knuckle fighting. However, this time, it won’t be with Bare Knuckle FC. This time, Artem will face Denys Berinchyk for the Mahatch FC promotion on July 24th.
Lobov’s last three bare-knuckle performances took place on the Bare Knuckle FC platform. He currently holds a 2-1 record in the promotion with victories over notable names such as Jason Knight and Paulie Malignaggi.

Promoting the Event
Back in April, the promotion released a press conference for Lobov vs. Berinchik. The fighters exchanged gifts, fielded questions from media members, and promised that the battle would be must-see TV, guaranteeing their all.
During the presser, Artem admitted that he chose the wrong approach to training for bare-knuckle boxing. After his first fight against Jason Knight, he realized that fights with bare fists are different than regular boxing. So, he completely changed his approach for the matchup against Denys Berinchyk.
