Bobby Fish Challenges CM Punk To An MMA Fight

Bobby Fish Challenges CM Punk To An MMA Fight AEW

Bobby Fish has challenged AEW World Champion CM Punk to a professional fight, suggesting several disciplines for a potential match-up.

CM Punk was reportedly involved in a physical altercation backstage following his verbal tirade during the All Out post show press conference. Per a previous report, Punk did ‘throw punches’ during the fight.

Speaking on The Undisputed Podcast, Bobby Fish stated that he’d be open to facing punk in a boxing, kickboxing, MMA or bare knuckle fight.

Officially challenging the AEW star, Fish said:

“Let’s just make this a formal invitation to Phil (CM Punk). Yeah, I’m down. If that’s the direction he wants to go and I mean, he could pick the time, the place, we can do it in Chicago.

“Yeah, that would be kind of fun, right? It can be boxing, it could be kickboxing, it can be MMA. I mean s**t, we can do this bareknuckle. Whatever sounds good to Phil. He can pick the weight, he can pick the place like I said. I mean whatever he wants to do but yeah, let’s make it official. Like come on Phil (Fish chuckled).

Fish has previously criticised Punk’s kicking technique. During this podcast, Fish joked about Punk’s involvement in the alleged confrontation:

Oh, they are atrocious (Fish described Punk’s kicks). Well, you said what you heard on the sheets was that he came out throwing haymakers. He didn’t come out throwing kicks, because he ain’t hitting anybody with those (Fish laughed).

A new report has indicated that there are ‘pending legal issues’ based the backstage altercation, which you can read more about right here.

Fish finished up with AEW at the end of August, with the two sides unable to come to terms on a new deal before his contract expired.
