Former two-division world champion Paulie Malignaggi has signed a promotional contract with Bare Knuckle FC to fight former UFC bantamweight contender Artem Lobov on June 22 at Florida State Fairgrounds Entertainment Hall in Tampa, Fla.
The beef between Paulie and Lobov is intensifying by each passing day and both fighters had a press conference on Monday at Dave & Buster’s in Times Square where Paulie ended up spitting on Lobov. Before that Paulie had slapped Lobov last month.

“This guy here was known as a punching bag with a loud mouth, who was known as the guy who trained with Conor McGregor. What are this guy’s accomplishments?,” Malignaggi said.
This only infuriated Artem Lobov where he said he was going to put Malignaggi in a cooler and piss on his mouth.
“You’re a piece of sh*t and I’m going to treat you like the dirtbag that you are,” he stated.
“I might take out my d*ck and p*ss on you. I’m going to take my d*ck out after I knock your teeth out, and I’m gonna p*ss in your toothless mouth.”
