Rumor: Tito Ortiz, Chuck Liddell to partner with Golden Boy Boxing for trilogy fight?
Come again now? They wouldn’t? Would they? This is combat sports, it’s 2018, so everything is pretty much on the table but if even this is a stretch. If a few weeks from now you hear more rumors of Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz fighting for a third time, don’t act surprised.
UFC doesn’t want it. Bellator may want it but can’t afford it. So maybe MMA legends Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz will need to think outside the eight sided box in order to get one more payday.
If Golden Boy Boxing promotions ever wanted to dip their toes in MMA, this fight would be it. Maybe Golden Boy views the upcoming Zuffa Boxing project as a threat down the road and wants to strike first?
Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz fighting a third time on pay-per-view with the power of Golden Boy promotions behind them? Combat sports in 2018, ladies and gentleman.
