The fight, which is to take place on August 20th, will be held in Page’s hometown of London. While “MVP” has no bare knuckle experience under his belt, the brash 35-year-old has scored knockouts both of his previous gloved boxing competition.

His opponent, “Platinum” Mike Perry, made his highly impressive debut to the biggest promotion in bare knuckle earlier this year where he defeated Julian Lane via unanimous decision. Previous to BKFC, Mike Perry had a 15-fight stint in the UFC, defeating the likes of Jake EllenbergerPaul Felder, and Mickey Gall.
