This event is to be held at a secret location but for anyone expecting a barn or field Andy assures us that all the normal facilities are available as would be with any main stream boxing promotion.
 
All ticket holders will receive a message on the day confirming the location.
 
Andy is a nice guy, after speaking to him on the phone; I quickly realized he is a very passionate man about his sport. This event could ground breaking for the UK. 
 
Q/ BKB is often associated with Gangsters and Travellers, who fight to honour a family name. Is this true at your show?
A/ We do get travellers that fight, but we get people from all walks of life as they do in MMA.
 
Q/ How do you find the crowd behaviour at these events?
A / The crowds are so respectful and there is never any trouble at all.
 


B-BAD I also spoke to PADDY MONAGHAN who was born 19th February 1944 in the village of Ederney, Co.Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. When Paddy was 5 years old, his father,broke and desperately trying to make ends meet, uprooted the family to Abingdon, England.
 
Often bullied and ridiculed as a young lad for his strong Northern Ireland accent, Paddy, determined that no one would push him around, and quickly learned to fight with ferocity beyond his years. This was the beginning of a long and renowned career as a bare-knuckle fighter.
 
At a fighting weight of little more than 11 stonePaddy Monaghan Paddy Monaghan was not immediately as intimidating as bare-knuckle boxers like Lenny McLean or Roy Shaw. But if anyone dared to underestimate this man - as many foolish opponents did in the past - the full force of the hardest man in Ireland, a fine and ferocious fighting machine,would be unleashed.
 
His unbroken record of 114 bare-knuckle fight wins is not only testimony to his exceptional strategic skill and fearsome punching ability, but also to his sheer determination and passion. Paddy Monaghan simply has something inside him that will not allow defeat.
 
Q/ When did you retire ?
A/ I retired in the 80s after winning 114 fights and no losses.
 
Q/ What made you such a hard opponent to beat?
A/ Most men punch the head to get the knockout, but I used to punch the body, it is not as hard as the head and you can take the breathe right out of the man.
 
Q/ Who is the greatest ever BKB fighter?
A/ Bartley was the best heavyweight, he was big strong and a mean man. But I'll let you ask Andy who he thinks is the best.
 
To which Andy took the phone and said,You have just been talking to the greatest ever man at Middleweight in BKB"
