Donald McPhee is as you might guess from north of the boarder. Not exactly New Era as he was first seen at B-BAD 7 where he fought Jacko Jackson  and has stepped in at the last second to fight Seth Jones. 'The Highlander' is ready to storm England like a latter day William Wallace make no mistake the Highlander is coming. Look out for him at a B-BAD Promotion in the near future he is easily recognised by the tattoo on the left side of his face. Jon P

I now asked Donald to give me a paragraph on B-BAD here is what he wrote.

" I think B-BAD is the number 1 Bare Knuckle Boxing Promotion out there. Everyday it goes from strength to strength. On 22nd November B-BAD invade's american soil for the biggest BKB event in the world and its all on live pay per view World wide and I know the B-BAD fighters will take the wins back their all great fighters going over and hard as nails. The owner of B-BAD Joe B-BAD, and Aaron 'Popeye' Watts and all involved with running and setting events up do a Great Job and am honoured to be part of it," 

I also asked Joe B-BAD to write a wee message about the legend Donald McPhee

" Donald is much loved in B-BAD promotions, he is a true warrior and not many people know this when he fought Seth Jones in Newcastle I called him 5 days before and he jumped at the fight with both hands, never runs never, he has a very bright future in Bare Knuckle and we hope that is with B-BAD."

So there we have it the first interview done and dusted, I would like to thank Joe B-BAD for letting me be involved.

A big thank you Donald McPhee for stepping up as my first interview.
