Watch the highlights as Artem Lobov defeats Paulie Malignaggi at BKFC 6 (VIDEO)
Malignaggi started the faster and looked to use his boxing in the contest, but Lobov would not be denied, and his relentless pursuit of the American eventually saw the bout swing in his favor as the matchup went into the later rounds.
With Malignaggi nursing a broken hand from the mid-way part of the fight, Lobov poured on the pressure to earn scores of 48-47 on all three of the judges' scorecards and claim victory over the trash-talking American.
It proved that being a world-class boxer isn't always enough in the world of bareknuckle competition, as Lobov's heart, grit and sheer toughness –as well as his own striking skills– helped carry him to victory in Tampa, Florida.
