Bobby Fish Talks How His Upcoming Boxing Debut Came About

Former WWE and AEW Star Bobby Fish took to an episode of his Undisputed podcast, where he spoke about a number of topics such as how his upcoming boxing debut against Boateng Prempeh in Dubai on November 13th came about.

Bobby Fish said:

“I got a message from a friend of mine who’s not related to boxing at all. He’s actually a friend of mine who lives in the U.K. and he mentioned that there was a friend of his that was trying to get ahold of me and then, so, he linked the two of us together. This gentleman and I spoke and he was the one that said, ‘Yeah, these guys want you in a boxing match. They are in Dubai. The fight would be in Dubai and yeah, they’re a fan of your stuff’ and I’m thinking to myself, okay, my stuff? None of my stuff includes boxing. There’s been kickboxing in there for sure but not actual boxing, and I would like and have wanted to get another amateur kickboxing or MMA fight in before the wheels fall of this wagon and I was gonna do it for an amateur fight, it would be free, right? So when this came along [boxing fight against Boateng Prempeh], even though I would prefer to do MMA or kickboxing, this is professional so, yeah, it’s a different kind of opportunity. We’ll be going to Dubai for a week. I’ve never been to Dubai. I mean that’s not why I’m doing it of course but yeah, everything just seemed to make a lot of sense. I got my agent Andy involved and he’s kind of taken care of things, continues to help take care of things. I spoke with one of my trainers at The Jungle MMA and Fitness and he said he’s in and I was like, ‘All right. Then we’re good.’ My wife was on board and really, that’s all I needed. If my wife’s good with it, my agent can sort out the details and I have a coach that I’ve known who’s coached me for — not for a fight yet but that I’ve worked with Muay Thai for I don’t know, since I’ve moved to Florida so four years. So I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m in. Let’s go.’ It’s happening.”

Bobby Fish also spoke about how his training in kickboxing will be hard not to use during the bout as well as how his transition has been pretty easy so far.

Bobby Fish said:

“[Bobby Fish laughs] Yes. That’s the thing too. Sometimes you get into movement and whatnot and then you gain the angle and you have the angle [to kick someone]. When you have the angle, you have a few different targets and it’s hard to resist just kicking somebody in the leg… and my coach said, ‘Well, you know, if you rifle one,’ he goes, ‘You’re gonna get disqualified but, we’ll probably get some press out of it.’ But no, it’s been good. It’s a pretty easy transition so far.”
