Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) is setting up to launch a pension plan for their roster fighters. The move will ensure that competitors are compensated for their contributions to the sport long after their fights. BKFC President Introduces Pension Plan BKFC President Dave Feldman released a statement to MMA fighting in regards to their pension plans. In the report, he explained how the program would work and the trajectory of bare-knuckle boxing. \u201cOur fighters are the most important asset of the company,\u201d said Feldman in the statement. \u201cWe want to ensure that they are compensated not only on the night of the fight but also looked after in retirement. For each BKFC fight, money will be placed in a pension account for them to draw on upon retirement. \u201cBKFC is the hottest, fastest-growing and most exciting sport in the world, and we want to ensure that our fighters are taken care of in every possible way.\u201d Details of the Plan However, to receive the pension, a fighter must be a part of the roster with a multi-fight deal. This means that boxers brought in for a box office one-off event would be excluded from the plan. Plus, fighters will have to be retired for five years before they can touch the money. As Feldman continued to speak, he explained why the organization created the pension plan. \u201cI\u2019ve been in this sport for a long time and I\u2019ve seen my dad put a lot of money away for fighters in the past and they did everything they could to break it. A lot of them went broke. \u201cThat\u2019s why we put a minimum of five years on it, so they have it and they\u2019re not just going to go out and blow it. They\u2019re going to have it when they need it.\u201d The introduction of BKFC and their pension plan could be a blueprint that sparks conversation with other mainstream combat sports organizations. Now that the foundation has been laid, maybe others will soon follow.
