Former boxing world champion Paulie Malignaggi will make his return to the ring later tonight (Sat., June 22, 2019) at Bare Knuckle FC 6 live on FITE.TV pay-per-view (PPV) from Tampa, Florida, when he puts his name on the line in an anticipated main event clash with former UFC fighter and budding rival Artem Lobov.

This isn’t just your ordinary bare knuckle fight that seems to pop up last second. The matchup between Malignaggi and Lobov has been years in making, stretching all the way back to Paulie’s publicized sparring session with Lobov’s teammate and former UFC champion Conor McGregor in 2017. Malignaggi and Lobov have taken their own personal feud to a new level over the past couple of months and will be trying to knock each other silly later tonight at BKFC 6.

Given the magnitude of this rivalry and the carnage that should unfold once the fists start to fly, fight fans will not want to miss the action later tonight. But exactly when can fight fans count on the Malignaggi vs. Lobov main event to start?

With the PPV main card beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET and eight fights currently scheduled to take place before the headliner, “Magic Man” and “Russian Hammer” should be making their respective walks to the ring right around 11:30 p.m. ET. That time is subject to change, though, especially with how quickly the BKFC broadcasts seem to go.

Keep it tuned into Mania for any start time updates. will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire BKFC 6 fight card on Sat. night, starting with the FITE.TV “Prelims” undercard bouts streamed free at 8 p.m. ET, followed by the FITE.TV PPV main card start time of 9 p.m. ET.
