Triller, BKFC’s Owner, Aquired By Hong Kong-Based Company

Triller, the parent company to BKFC, has been making moves in the social content space in recent years, and now the media conglomerate has been acquired by AGBA out of Hong Kong as a result of a $4 billion merger.

The companies will now be traded together publicly under AGBA Group Holdings Limited on the NASDAQ stock market, where share value has increased dramatically since the merger.

It is fairly common knowledge that in recent years Triller has been making moves in an effort to go public, and through the deal with AGBA they have accelerated that process due to the finance company’s existing public trading status. The merger is expected to close in late May, but it seems that all parties are on board and things are falling into place.

Back in 2022, Triller purchased a large portion of BKFC, but this was not their first endeavor in the combat sports world. Triller was part of their first fight event in 2020, with a highly publicized exhibition matchup between Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. headlining, with Jake Paul taking on former NBA star Nate Robinson in the co-main event.

While the PPV sales that were reported for the event ranged, and were heavily debated, the bottom line became that Triller successfully entered into the combat sports space. The company went on to promote their own events, most notably featuring former UFC stars such as Frank Mir, Mike Perry, and Matt Mitrione. Of course, this was prior to Triller getting into business with the BKFC.
