Frank Shamrock wants boxing match with Antonio Tarver

FRANK SHAMROCK WANTS TO BOX ANTONIO TARVER

FightHype.com recently recently caught up with MMA legend Frank Shamrock, who's set to face Nick Diaz in the main event of Strikeforce's first card televised on Showtime. To our surprise, Shamrock revealed that he's also currently working on a potential move to boxing and is already looking at some possible opponents. "It's been a dream since I was a little boy and becoming a boxing champion is what got me into mixed martial arts. I've always wanted to try it. I'm running out of guys to fight in MMA, so watch out boxers," he replied. Shamrock, who's taking his boxing dream seriously, confirmed that both Showtime and Strikeforce are backing his decision to compete in boxing. In fact, Showtime is actually taking it one step further.

Frank would do well....but he has not run out of guys to fight MMA with.

First off, Antonio Tarver would kill Frank Shamrock in a straight boxing match. In terms of boxing, there aren't many MMA fighters if any that can hang with top level pro boxers.

Secondly, "running out of guys to fight?" Who the fuck has Frank Shamrock fought in the last 10 years? Cung Le and Phil Baroni? Hardly a who's who of mma fighters.

I honestly can't stand listening to Frank Shamrock. Shut up, fight guys in your own weight class and fight to win.

I can't see Frank doing too well in boxing, he needs to stick with a sport where the ground game comes into play.

I think what he meant to say was, he's run out of guys he can beat in MMA. And apparently now he'd like to go get his ass kicked in boxing.

Wow that's cool. I think Antonio is a bit to much for the guy. But he's a pro fighter, he knows what he has to do. Good Luck Frank. But before you retire I would really like ya fight Micheal Bisping and Anderson Silva. You gotta go out with fireworks!

I would rather see the Shamrock brothers fight after years of reading how they were going to and it's never happened. I'd rather see that than Frank get battered against Tarver. Look, I don't think a boxer would do well at an MMA fight and vice versa. There are very few MMA guys who have top notch boxing skills and there are virtually no boxers who have top MMA skills that I'm aware of. So other than trying to get a lot of attention, this fight is pointless. There are plenty of intriguing matchups for Shamrock, but maybe that interview I read recenctly from Ken saying that Frank is dodging him, is starting to look a little more legit. Ken said that they were near signing a contract for big money when Frank opted to fight Diaz, so I'm not sure, maybe Ken is serious about how Frank is avoiding him and potentially getting "beat to living death" :biggrin:

That definitely would not go well for Frank. Tarver would eat Frank alive.
