Not professionally, but for fitness and practice.
Here is what the boxing champ told Jim Rome while a guest on his show:
[box_light]“[MMA is] a very tough sport. I don’t think I’m ready to practice it and fight in the cage, I think I’m too old for it, but I have a lot of respect… Because you have to have a lot of abilities. You have to be so multi-functional, you have to be a wrestler, you have to be a good kickboxer, you have to be a good boxer, you have to be with good condition. We can go forever what they have to be to keep winning for a long time and be a champion, consistent champions, it’s very difficult. I don’t want to fight, but I want to try. I want to try the fitness. Just get in an MMA gym and just practice certain things. I used to wrestle, and I did judo when I was younger. As training, as fitness, perfect. Fighting, no.”[/box_light]
Current WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO and Ring Magazine heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko has a slight interest in training Mixed Martial Arts for physical fitness. Although he admits his age would limit his ability to compete in the sport professionally.featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc news
