Dana White has always been a spur of the moment, outspoken promoter. So it seemed to keep right along with his usual ways when he announced during the Mayweather/McGregor promotion that he was looking into doing boxing as well.
Now it has been confirmed to not just be his normal banter. On Tuesday evening, while speaking with Peter Berg at his Wild Card West Speaker Series, White confirms that not only will he go into boxing he will keep his job as President of the UFC.
Here is what White had to say:
“I am getting into boxing 100%. I’m not leaving the UFC. I’m getting into boxing with Ari and the UFC will be doing boxing, too. It’s still early. We’re still working on it. I’ve got to get my [stuff] together, but I’m getting into boxing, man. It’s coming.
Here is a video of White discussing the UFC and boxing with Berg:
Imagine the great boxing matches we could have among the UFC’s best!
How do you think boxing would do mixed between MMA bouts during a card?
When all is worked out who would be your 1st choice to box in the UFC?
