Darren Till clears the air on Mike Perry BKFC fight talks

In a recent appearance on The MMA Hour, Till was asked about the terms of his upcoming combat sports comeback.

“It’ll be in boxing,” Till said about his return. “For a guy that’s been out of the fight game for 15 months, people still talk a lot about me…like [Mike Perry] went crazy the other day calling me every name under the sun. That fight has got to happen, doesn’t it?

“I’d love to fight Perry, I don’t really want to fight him in bare knuckle because I feel like…I’m still young and fresh, so I want to save it [for a future fight]…bare-knuckle’s not the move for me right now…I’m not saying [Mike is at the end], but he’s just a big dumbo. Who’s he been fighting? Eddie Alvarez, Thiago Alves, they got the brain capacity of a loaf of bread. I’ll give him [Michael Venom Page], but I’m not impressed.”

Perry is expected to return to the BKFC ring later this year against a to-be-determined opponent. A matchup with Till could potentially happen in the next year.

Before parting ways with the UFC, Till struggled inside the Octagon, losing five of his final six fights with the promotion. His skid began when he lost to Tyron Woodley for the UFC welterweight title at UFC 228.

Till hasn’t ruled out an eventual return to the UFC after his upcoming boxing ventures. A fight with Perry is still on the table, and it appears that the former UFC star is motivated for his comeback.
