Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir is stepping into the boxing ring.
Mir today announced that he’s taking on former WBA, WBC, IBF and IBO champion Antonio Tarver as part of the upcoming Triller Fight Club pay-per-view event featuring Ben Askren and Jake Paul on April 17 at an as-yet-undisclosed location.
I am a competitor. I have been all my life.
I take on challenges to grow and better myself as a person.
I have always wanted to test myself in the boxing ring so when this opportunity arose I jumped on it.
See you April 17th @AntonioTarver #MirTarver
