Dana White may be the president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), but the longtime UFC head has always been a huge fan of boxing. Now White has come forward with some news concerning his hopes for a boxing promotion of his own.
Dana White has been voicing an interest in starting his own boxing promotion for some time now. Speaking to the Australian Financial Review, White revealed that the Zuffa plans on starting “a new league that it will own and control.”
“We will not work with the WBA, WBC, IBF, IBO, and WBO organizations,” White said.
“The interest is definitely there – all the fighters have reached out, other promoters have contacted us and everybody’s keen,” White later continued. “The question is how I make it work with bandwidth maxed out right now running the UFC’s business.”
