Frank Mir to make pro boxing debut against Antonio Tarver on Paul – Askren undercard


You never know what you’re going to get with these Triller cards. You get concerts, rappers lighting up on stage, Snoop Dogg on commentary, and a wide variety of boxing from boxers and non-boxers.

On April 17th, YouTube sensation turned boxer Jake Paul is set to take on MMA sensation (and Jorge Masvidal victim), Ben Askren. This is supposed to be Paul taking on a fighter in the boxing ring that is not an actual boxer. Now we have another fight happening on the card featuring another MMA fighter against a legit boxer.

Frank Mir is a former UFC Heavyweight Champion and Bellatrix fighter. He gave Brock Lesnar the first loss of Lesnar’s MMA career. Mir will be facing none other than former World champion who needs no introduction.  If you know blxong you know who this man is. The “Magic Man” himself Antonio Tarver. 

“I am a competitor. I have been all my life,” Tweeted Mir. “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 Antonio Tarver.”
