• UFC Legend Wants A Boxing Match Against Shaquille O’Neal

Nowadays celebrity boxing and exhibition fights are considered a pretty popular thing, after Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Mike Tyson participated in such fights.

Now it appears that UFC Legend Chuck Liddell has challenged NBA Legend Shaquille O’Neal to an actual boxing match.

Here’s what Chuck said on ‘Unlocking The Cage’:

“Yeah, Shaq would be a fun one, change it up and try to reach Shaq.

You gotta remember, one of my sparring partners for a long time was 6’10?, so it’s not big, but I trained with Gan McGee for forever, and my brother is 6’4, 6’5, 300lb.

But standing next to Shaq, Shaq’s a big man.

I’m always around big guys, but Shaq’s one of those few guys you go up to and go ‘Damn, Shaq’s big’.”

UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell officially retired from MMA in 2018.

Shaquille O’Neal recently wrestled for Tony Khan’s All-Elite Wrestling, after occasional celebrity appearances on WWF/WCW/WWE TV for many years.
