HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – Arnold Adams likes what he saw from who’s likely going to be his next title challenger but not enough to be worried.
The BKFC heavyweight champion was impressed by Alan Belcher’s latest win inside the ring. Belcher, a former UFC contender, picked up a first-round KO over Frank Tate in the main event of BKFC Fight Night: Jackson 2 earlier this month.
“He did his thing. I kind of had that fight as a tossup,” Adams told MMA Junkie. “Am I threatened by Belcher? Not at all. Am I impressed by his knockout? For sure.
“He overcame a 10-inch, almost 10-inch reach advantage to get the knockout. That says a lot about him, but at the same time, we know who Frank Tate is.”
Adams expects his next title defense to come against Belcher. Although Belcher is now 3-0 in bare-knuckle boxing and has plenty of experience fighting at an elite level in the UFC, Adams believes his style will be difficult for Belcher to prepare.
“He will get a title shot. As a matter of fact, his next fight and my next fight, we’ll be fighting each other,” Adams said. “But the thing is that with me, no one can prepare for me.
“You can watch all my fights, but in all my fights I show you something different. So what do you prepare for? And when you get in there with me, even though you prepared so much, it’s still 110 percent different. You don’t know what you’re getting from me in a fight.”
