Strikeforce CEO, Scott Coker has verified that the 3 time all-american, Heisman winner Herschel Walker will in fact fight on Strikeforce 30 in Strikeforce’s hometown of San Jose on January 29th. Walker was originally scheduled to fight on the Strikeforce: Henderson vs Babalu card against Scott Carson, but was forced to pull out due to lacerations on his face.
Walker currently carries a 1-0 record with a debut win over Greg Nagy in a third round TKO back on January 30 in Miami, Florida. That will mean it will be almost exactly a year since the former NFL star last stepped in the ring. No challenger has been announced for Walker by Coker as of yet.
