Argentine Franco Tenaglia , currently residing in Alicante, is the continental champion of Bare Knuckle FC. Alternating between bare-knuckle boxing and MMA, on June 29 he will be the protagonist of a mixed martial arts event in Alicante.


The year 2024 has been crucial for Franco Tenaglia . Known as "The King of the Street", this 27-year-old Argentine has overcome many challenges.

His appearance in "King of the Streets" (extreme fights posted on YouTube) was his springboard to sporting success.


Two years ago he arrived at the Climent Club in Alicante with the aim of getting away from his previous dangerous life, and thanks to sport, he achieved it. Since then, he has steadily progressed and found a family in the gym where Ilia Topuria made his name. Tenaglia shared his story at a martial arts event organized by YouTuber Jordi Wild. "Participating there gave me great visibility. Many brands approached me, but I am very authentic and guided by energies. Some companies tried to impose limits on me, but I rejected them, even if I needed the money," he commented in an interview with Relevo.
