Artem Lobov successfully crossed over from mixed martial arts to the world of bare knuckle fighting, now the former UFC fighter is looking to head into boxing?
Lobov had the biggest fight of his career at BKFC 6, as he took a unanimous decision win over former world champion boxer and Conor McGregor enemy, Paulie Malignaggi, and now it seems like he wants a crack at Amir Khan.
First presented as an idea by SBG Ireland head coach John Kavanagh for BRAVE CF’s debut in the Kingdom of Bahrain, Lobov would reply to the idea on Twitter accepting the challenge and calling out a few other names as well.
My last fight was called the event of the summer by FORBES, if you want BRAVE to make real waves in combat world I am your man!! Khan, Broner, Manny, whoever…..when I fight the world is watching!!!

“My last fight was called the event of the summer by Forbes,” the former UFC featherweight wrote on Twitter. “If you want BRAVE to make real waves in combat world I am your man!! Khan, Broner, Manny, whoever…..when I fight the world is watching!!!”
While the fight against Malignaggi was on a more even bare knuckle playing field, Lobov would be facing Khan in a traditional boxing match.
And while Lobov is down, Khan has not responded, possibly due to his fourth round drubbing of Billy Dib on Friday in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
