Dana White Not Letting Boxing Die, Hints At Future Involvement In Sport

With a producer credit on a reality series titled, “The Fighters”, UFC President Dana White is slowly putting his toes into the deep end of the boxing pool.

Currently just testing out the waters, the UFC boss went on FOX Sports to explain his position with the sport of boxing and what his future in the sport may bring.

“There is nothing but fucking characters in boxing. Boston is an exciting place for this. The accent alone speaks boxing. It’s a very unique, interesting world and this is a look into it. I’ve always got the boxing itch. I’m a boxing guy at heart. I’m always going to be that guy. How deep would I get? Let’s see how far this thing goes. I don’t want to see the sport of boxing die. This is my contribution to the sport I love. I think I can make something out of it.”

White’s reality series is set to debut later this month on the Discovery Channel. (See trailer here).
