First Conor McGregor got a boxing license, and it was edgy and cool. Then Nate Diaz did it, but everything Diaz does is pretty hype, so whatever. But now Jose Aldo wants to jump on the boxing bandwagon – is this guy lame or what?
As per MMAFighting:
“First of all, it’s not about money. I want to keep it clear. Thank God the UFC and MMA gave me a lot of stuff,” Aldo told TV Combate on Sunday night. “Yes, I think about having a career in boxing, but I want to start from the bottom, start from zero. I want to get ranked and one day fight for a belt. I don’t want to fight just to fight, for money, to go after big fights and challenge a great champion.
“I respect every boxer, but I want to start from the bottom. I want a career in boxing. That was my biggest dream, to one day become champion in MMA and boxing. That is my biggest dream.”
Asked about his longtime rival’s desire to compete against Mayweather in a boxing ring, Aldo said he doesn’t care about what “The Notorious” does.
“I hope Conor gets f***ed, that’s what matters to me,” Aldo said. “I don’t give a damn about him. I’ve already said he’s sh*t, so what he does or doesn’t do, I don’t care. I worry about myself. I’m training to defend my belt. I want to fly higher.”
