Charlie Milner Makes BKB Debut, Stops Veteran Antagonist Eric Olsen!
Some call Eric ‘Bloodaxe’ Olsen the ‘most controversial man in Bare Knuckle Boxing’. MyMMANews.com described Olsen as ‘more hated than Colby Covington, more brash than Chael Sonnen’ – hyperbole or not, Olsen is credited as a pioneer of Bare Knuckle Boxing (BKB), and represented a dangerous venture for 4-1 British MMA heavyweight Charlie ‘Kung Fu Panda’ Milner.
Sussex-based Milner, however, had no interest feeding into the mind games of the ever-expressive Olsen, and quickly dispatched the well-travelled American, letting his hands do the talking.
Milner, who some have labelled as a wrestling-based fighter in recent times, showed that boxing is and always has been at the heart of his development as a professional fighter, showing good footwork, shot selection, and fearsome power. Overmatched, Olsen was left busted up by the calm and composed technical style of Milner, who managed to avoid much damage and add another victory to his exciting start as a professional fighter.
If this display is anything to go by, the ever-hungry Charlie Milner will be a force to be reckoned with not only in MMA, but also in BKB in the coming months and years!
