    UFC wouldn’t pay boxers multi fight contracts.
    When they lose their first fight they’ll want to go back to boxing

    AJ with 2 years of MMA training can be a force to reckon with.

    But i rather see him stay in boxing. He is setting up a great legacy for himself.

    Stay in your lane AJ.

    this is just silly.

    "The capture of Joshua would immediately make the UFC key players and it is thought the Briton could earn $50 million (£35 million) per fight if he switched to them, with the prospect of a multi-fight deal taking him to over $500 million in earnings."

    doesn't seem like a great source esp with this

    "His purse for the fight with Klitschko was around £15 million and just under £10 million for his defence against Carlos Takam last October. "

    after it. so the UFC will hire him for 3-5x his biggest fights?
