After a loss to Jon Jones, the popular MMA brawler, Rampage Jackson, is planning a move from mixed martial arts to boxing. He told ESPN that he may make the shift over and that boxers would stand toe to toe with him and wouldn’t “fight scared.”
Jackson is 33 years old and the transition from sport to sport isn’t always a smooth one. Most boxers that make their way into the cage end up losing quickly and vice versa. They are two different beasts, but Jackson has charisma and will be matched lightly like Kimbo Slice and will get some wins before risking it. It’s a safe bet that we will see him in the boxing ring in the near future.
