UFC heavyweight Greg Hardy has issued out a warning to Boxing giants Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder and predicts a knockout ending for all the top Heavyweights ones he makes his switch over from MMA To Boxing.
Hardy, a former NFL Pro Pass-crusher made a big switch to the MMA world after being forced off the NFL by a domestic violence scandal. He has since been able to accumulate a 7-3 record in the UFC and six of his wins coming by way of Knockout.
Hardy was a three sport competitor, a high school letter-man competing in Football , basketball and as well as track. However, his life almost had a wrong turn after he was found guilty of assaulting one of his ex girlfriends back in 2014. He has however grown beyond that and is presently doing great in the UFC.
Hardy’s most recent outing saw him succumbed to a second round stoppage loss, with Marcin Tybura, viciously pounding him on the canvas till the referee intervened. It is very glaring that Hardy prefares fighting on his feets than the canvas, which could give him an edge when transitioning from MMA to Boxing.
“After I get done shutting this down, handling my MMA business, I want to venture into the boxing realm,” said Hardy. “I’m trying to holler at [UFC president] Dana [White]. Hopefully we can get some fights in the Zuffa Boxing world, Top Rank, Al Haymon — somebody come holler at this dude because I definitely want to go over there and knock out ‘The Gypsy King’ [Tyson Fury], make light work of that English cat [Anthony] Joshua, or whatever it is, ‘Cry-baby Bomber’ [Deontay Wilder]. We’ll knock all those guys out, man.
Hardy has opened up on his plans to switch to the boxing world and has called out the best Heavyweights in the game at the moment. He has a good reach and a 6′,5″ height and weighed in at 266 pounds for his last outing against Marcin Tybura but the question remains. Does he have the skills required for success in boxing.
“Of course, you know I’m going to work for it. It’s an aspiration I think will come true real fast, and I can’t wait for it,” said Hardy.
