The new UFC interim heavyweight champion has shared his thoughts on the current state of boxing.
Speaking to TalkSPORT he said: “Let me tell you, I’m a massive boxing fan and I absolutely love the sport of boxing.”
“I absolutely can’t stand the boxing model, hate it, hate the way that boxing is going at the moment because I love the sport of boxing, I love the science, the defensive techniques which is amazing.
He continued: “I absolutely love watching classic, traditional boxers who are defensively brilliant.
“The way the sport’s going is absolutely terrible, you can literally look at a card, you can look at an Eddie Hearn show or Frank Warren show, any other promoter’s show and let’s say there are 10 fights on, you know at least eight of the winners before the bell rings, I can’t stand it.”
