Donald Trump’s hand picked WrestleMania 23 main eventer and current MMA champion heavyweight Bobby Lashley joined Mister Saint Laurent on MLW Radio presented by www.BarberShopWindow.com, the official podcast of Major League Wrestling. Lashley has competed as an MMA fighter since leaving WWE, but spoke of a desire to pursue a career as a professional boxer.

“I think I might take a boxing match. I’ve been offered a boxing match. I’ve been doing a lot of boxing. I’m trying to open as many doors as possible . . . I really like boxing. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some really cool boxing coaches.”

“I’ve been approached and I didn’t turn it away. One of my boxing instructors sent me down to Vegas to train with [famed trainer] Eddie Mustafa. Eddie said he’d have me ready for my first match in two months and would have me ready for a title shot in a year or a year and a half.”
