Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn has been fleshing out his concept for a crossover card that might characteristic boxers and MMA fighters competing in one another’s disciplines (prompted by the entire Dillian Whyte-Francis Ngannou factor). So with Hearn discussing what he has in thoughts, the British promoter shared these thought:
“Ngannou-Whyte, the one factor is can we go we go within the cage or can we go within the ring?” Hearn stated throughout an Instagram stream. “Apparently in London they wish to see it within the ring, although.
“I assumed perhaps me and Dana [White] may put this night time collectively the place you bought a hoop that additionally transforms right into a cage between match-ups. So you bought crossover fights, however you’ve acquired a MMA fighter towards a boxer within the ring, and also you’ve acquired a boxer preventing an MMA fighter within the cage.”
I really feel like I’ve seen these eventualities play out up to now, in each iterations, and the result’s at all times what you’d count on. Apparently there’s some demand for this type of factor although, so we’ll see if it positive aspects any traction.
