Mike Perry: Big boxing opponent would be ‘super fire’ – especially Tommy Fury

Free agent Mike Perry has plenty of options on the table.

Perry’s star continued to grow under the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship banner when he defeated former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold by TKO at BKFC 41. He ended the night in an in-ring faceoff with Irish superstar Conor McGregor, who was in attendance for the fight.

“Platinum” has three straight wins, and he isn’t ruling out a future with BKFC. But Perry also sees some big fights for him in boxing – including Tommy Fury, who’s coming off a win over Jake Paul in February.

“Another couple weeks and I believe we should know where I’m going and what I’m doing,” Perry told MMA Junkie Radio. “They should get me locked down, and then sometime this year I’m looking for a boxing match. So if there’s any opponents out there, maybe (Jermell) Charlo – Charlo needs to box somebody 175, 180 (pounds). I can do that. Let me fight (Dmitry) Bivol at 180 … KSI – I could fight KSI.

“A big name in boxing would be super fire. The Tommy Fury fight, that’s a big fight. I think that’s very ideal, considering the success I’ve had in bare-knuckle boxing. I am a professional boxer, as well. He’s only 8-0 as a boxer, and you know they don’t fight huge fights like that until they’re like 20-0 and things like that. So I think that’s a big chance. I’m calling for some tough fights here.”

Perry has found a perfect home at BKFC and has thrived under its rule set. He also sees himself having big success in boxing.

“I know I can box,” Perry said. “I can box. I can box so good, you could punch me and it don’t matter – (I’ll) head butt your hands and then punch you in the face and knock out your teeth. What the hell – I can’t lie: That’s where I’m at. I love to box, and no matter the sport, I’m going to box you up.”
