“He’s been supporting me, I’ve been supporting him and I’ve said I’m going to come back with all these belts. He’s the UFC featherweight king, and I’m the lightweight king and we’re going to help each other.” {H/t The Mac Life}

The UFC Featherweight champion, Alexander Volkanovski is a really good friend of George Kambosos Jr and over the years many UFC fighters leaped from the Octagon to the boxing ring, with Conor McGregor being the most popular case. But apart from Claressa Shields, no other boxer has made a move from the boxing ring to the Octagon.

That’s why Kambosos wants to help Volkanovski to improve his striking and in return learn more aggressive grappling for him. George Kambosos Jr continued, “How good would it be for me to sharpen up his striking for him and him to help me with my grappling for my inside game?”

“When I do get in the clinches I want to be able to use my weight and get a bit sharper on that side of the game, it’s a good thing. We’re both proud and we both got to the top of our sport and we’re both Greek as well, so there’s a lot of similarities.”

He continued, “Who knows, you might see me make my UFC debut in the future and he might end up in the boxing world soon, you never know! Maybe down the line, we’ll see.” {H/t The Mac Life}
