The goal for Greg Hardy during his most recent boxing outing was clear.
Hardy took on Gregory Corbin this past Saturday night (September 30) in heavyweight action. The former UFC heavyweight was looking to wipe away the memory of his TKO loss to Alexander Flores in an amateur bout back in June.
Hardy was back in a proper boxing match on the pro scene when he met Corbin. For the former NFL defensive end, it was a successful night at the office. At the end of the first round, Corbin’s team had seen enough and threw in the towel.
Greg Hardy Defeats Gregory Corbin
While Hardy is used to the bright lights, this time he found himself boxing at the Tower Club in Dallas, Texas. With the victory, Hardy has improved his pro boxing record to 3-0, while Corbin falls to 15-5.
Whether or not Hardy plans to continue boxing or dip his toes back in the MMA waters remains to be seen. The former UFC heavyweight has long said that he trains to become the best, but at this stage, some believe he might be better suited going after lucrative bouts in the social media boxing space if he’s going to keep fighting.
Regardless of what Hardy plans on doing next, his detractors are sure to follow. Greg Hardy has become a controversial figure due to his past history with domestic violence. Taking the personal aspect out of things, Hardy has certainly proven with his fights that either his opponent goes down, or he will. We’ll see how long that style is sustainable for Hardy, who is 35 years old.
