Ben Rothwell can make his bare-knuckle boxing debut with BKFC later this season when he battles Bobo OBannon.

The person referred to as Big Ben was released by the best Fighting Championship earlier this season before a proposed match-up against Alexander Gustafsson, noting the next during an interview with Ariel Helwani.

We asked for the release in February, Rothwell said. I said Ive only got so many fights, which fight was only a fight to create money. The facts really likely to do easily fight Gustafsson, who’s a name, but hes 0-3 [in his last three fights] and the fight is a fight. Its a fight to create money, and Ive only got so many fights left in me to create money.

We just asked for the release, plus they said there is a period heading back and forth I believe it caught them off surprise if anything. Ive been using them for 13 years. So that they granted it to us plus they didnt need to. THEREFORE I have nothing bad to state. Ive had an excellent 13 years being truly a professional fighter, making my living from fighting, addressing do something I really like plus they granted it to us.
