Ex-UFC fighter Greg Hardy continued his recent foray into boxing when he stepped in to face Hasim Rahman Jr. on short notice as part of Misfits Boxing 3 on DAZN.
Rahman Jr. was originally scheduled to take on another former UFC fighter in Vitor Belfort, but the 45-year-old tested positive for COVID just a few days before the fight. While Hardy came in on short notice and only had a couple of boxing bouts under his belt, “The Prince of War” held a considerable size advantage when he stepped into the ring to face Rahman Jr.
Hardy wasn’t too out of place on the card in terms of his boxing experience, as many of the scheduled fights were between social media personalities that also lacked extensive boxing records.
In addition to Rahman Jr. vs. Hardy, the card also included bouts between Nurdeen “Deen the Great” Shabazz and Walid “Sharks” Muhsein as well as former college football player and reality TV star Chase DeMoor taking on former MMA fighter Josh Brueckner.
