What is a Baklei Brawl?


Mads Krügger issues a special challenge to the CONTRA Hunter Alex Hammerstone

Last night Mads Krügger challenged the National Openweight Champion Alex Hammerstone to a Baklei Brawl in 2 weeks.

Of course, that left many wondering: what exactly is a Baklei Brawl?

Krügger challenges Hammerstone

Baklei is a term Afrikaans use for fighting.

A staple of the South African underworld, Baklei Brawls are bareknuckle, anything goes illegal prize fights.

Bakleis are often brutal yet big business in the slums with heavy betting on these outlawed and dangerous fights.

It is said that Mads Krügger fought in Bakleis in South Africa for years. Now, the CONTRA commander looks to trap Hammerstone in these familiar confines where he promises to “extinguish the mighty Hammerstone.”

Will the “Black Hand of CONTRA” eliminate the “CONTRA Hunter” Hammerstone from pursuing Jacob Fatu’s World Heavyweight Championship? Or will the National Openweight Champion conquer literally his biggest challenge and threat to date? We’ll find out in 2 weeks as Hammerstone fights Mads Krügger at undisclosed location in MLW’s first-ever Baklei Brawl.
