FORMER BOXING CHAMPION RAY ‘BOOM BOOM’ MANCINI DEFENDS MMA
(PRESS RELEASE) -- LOS ANGELES – Former Boxing Champion Ray “Boom
Boom” Mancini defended the sport of mixed martial arts in response
to the controversial comments made by current WBC lightweight
champion Adrien Broner about MMA on AXS TV’S INSIDE MMA with series
hosts Kenny Rice and Bas Rutten.
“I worked with a lot of these guys with their hands, they're great
guys, great athletes. I'm gonna tell you, Broner doesn't know
because he never trained that way. These guys, once you go in the
dirt, it's a whole different game."
During the interview, Mancini also said that he would have been an
MMA fighter if it were around when he was still fighting.
