UFC President Dana White Provides Update on Zuffa Boxing

In more recent weeks, we haven’t heard much about Dana White’s plans to promote boxing bouts, so much so, some had wondered if it was still in the works. But, recently the UFC President provided an update on his plans for Zuffa Boxing.

White recently spoke with ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, and when asked about his plans to get back into the boxing business, he said this (quotes via MMA Mania):

“I had a meeting in LA yesterday. We are continuing to move forward, and we will absolutely, positively be in the boxing business,” White said.

“Soon,” White added. “I just bought the building next door here. We’re building a $12 million facility. We’ll basically have our own arena. We’ll be able to put fights right here next door and air them live anywhere in the world. I can do MMA fights, I can do boxing, I can do kickboxing, I can do jiu-jitsu, I can do all kinds of different fights and tournaments. We’re going to do a lot of things.”

“If you know how I run my business and what I like, yes I want all the best boxers in the world. I want them all to fight each other and find out who the real champ is. That’s what we’re going to do.”

So, there you have it. It will be interesting to see when this gets underway, and whether White can indeed, add some big names to the Zuffa Boxing roster.
