With a little bit more than a month before Jim “The Bare Knuckle Beast” Alers and Julian Lane toe the line as the co-main event of Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship’s next event BKFC 8, the two fighters have already begun to exchange unpleasantries and venom at one another via social media, particularly on a Facebook post from yours truly.
Alers was featured in a video promoting the bout and made it clear he felt that he was the real star of BKFC and that he will finish Lane when they face off October 18th at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, Florida.
Lane, never one to let someone talk and go unchecked made his own video to remind everyone just who he is, what he has accompilshed as a bare-knuckle fighter, and what he plans on doing to Alers when they hit the BKFC ring.
I shared both videos on my page, as I believe in equal time. Well, that’s where the fun begins. Alers saw Lane’s video and made a comment, and from there it escalated to a back and forth war of words, that I will share with you here.
So with 35 days left till fight night and the feud building, one can only hope that these two deliver on fight night. By the way, don’t worry they will!
