VIDEO: Ross Pearson Wins Boxing Debut; Slams McGregor’s Approach To Boxing

Ross Pearson Calls Out McGregor Following First Pro Boxing Victory

When Ross Pearson retired from MMA in April, fans thought that would be the last they would see of him. However, he recently made a return to combat, under a different umbrella.

Ross “The Real Deal” Pearson was as exciting as it gets in the UFC. It would only make sense for that to translate to boxing as well. Pearson made his boxing debut yesterday, under the banner of No Limit Boxing.

Pearson would take on Salar King. King holds a less-than-ideal record of 5-10-0, which is appropriate for someone making their pro debut. Although, Pearson is clearly more experienced than most debutantes. Ross Pearson was known for using his striking inside the UFC cage, which is what he told led him to believe he would do well in boxing.

“I was a stand-up fighter in the UFC and I know that means I can handle it in boxing. After fighting in the UFC for many years, I fear no man — this won’t be a one off appearance like Conor McGregor. I aim to conquer the sport by destroying anybody that steps into the ring with me.”

Ross Pearson was obviously taking a jab (pun intended) at Conor McGregor’s lone boxing fight against Floyd Mayweather.

Pearson retired from MMA with a record of 20-16 (1NC). His last professional MMA bout to date, was a loss to Desmond Green. Ross Pearson was an accomplished fighter, winning season 9 of TUF. He also had legendary fights with the likes of Jorge Masvidal and Gray Maynard.
