The former UFC legend, Frank Mir, will have a historic combat of boxing in a few days, being a rage in networks. The ex-fighter (19-13 MMA), who was a Heavyweight champion in the leading Mixed Martial Arts company, changes directions. On this occasion, he signed a contract to face the former champion of the WBA, WBC, FIB and IBO, Antonio Tarver (boxing 31-6-1). It should be noted that this will be in a ring, 10 rounds, on April 17.
Being so, Mir He stated, “I just want to make a good show of myself first and foremost. Look, I am an example to my children and my children are smart. They are phenomenal human beings, if you look at my Instagram you can see the things they are already doing, my daughter and my children. So I am an example to them. When I step into that ring, my daughter will be in my corner. I want to make sure that when I get out of that ring, my daughter is proud to be her father. “
Regardless of how that fight ends, I walk out of there with pride. Hopefully that means I’ll poke Tarver’s fist through his ribs and he’ll be pulled out on a stretcher. But if he comes out with an L, he’ll probably still go on a stretcher. They may outnumber me on points, but I make sure everyone knows I was there. I have to hang out with Roy a couple of times abroad in Russia, ”he also noted.
Seeks to make history
For its part, Frank He acknowledged, “He’s an amazing guy, interesting to talk to, the person I thought he would be mentally in terms of knowledge of combat sports, war in general. Being able to avenge the loss of one of your heroes is always a pleasure. Seeing Roy and Mike, especially Mike Tyson, someone I can relate to, someone who really let himself go there in his late 30s and 40s. “
“So, being a mixed martial artist, I’m familiar with boxing and I’m very good at it and very good at jiu-jitsu and very good at wrestling. Now I’m focused on training and getting in shape because look, I understood the basics. So I’m going to have to make sure I show up in phenomenal shape so I can maintain a pace and power output and use my size and strength and really make sure that when I’m doing the basics, everything I throw hurts and hurts for 10 rounds. », Ended Frank Mir.
