Lashley mentioned, “I’ve been talking about it for a while now. At some point in time in your career, you have to stop fighting. But I still have so much fight left in me.”

He further revealed that he had been offered a bare-knuckle fight against a football player and had discussed potential boxing matches he’d be interested in. Lashley believes that boxing is the direction he wants to take at this juncture.
