After the proposed boxing match between Tim Sylvia and Ray Mercer was given the thumbs down by the New Jersey Athletic Control board, Adrenaline CEO Monte Cox refused to give up and move the whole event to the athletically uncontrolled Birmingham, Alabama.
If that wasn’t enough, the boxing match will take place in a MMA cage.
“It just makes sense on so many levels, and it adds another twist to the main event … It’s time that boxers learn that the guys in MMA are pretty good with their hands, too”
“This could open up a whole new career for me. I hope that beating Mercer will open the eyes of some boxing promoters.” [Yahoo Sports]
