Mike “The Marine” Richman of Rosemount, MN makes his Bare Knuckle Boxing debut and Minnesota’s Kou Lee of defends his XFN kickboxing title this Saturday night.
Richman is in London, England where he will face Marcus Gaines for BKB which is boxing with no gloves. Richman has competed in boxing and MMA at as low as 135 pounds but his fight against Gaines has The Marine moving up to 180 pounds. He says the huge jump in weight is no concern because he is confident that his boxing skills will negate the size advantage his opponent will hold. The show begins at 1 pm local time and Richman is one of the first fights. You can watch live at this link, CLICK HERE.
