Ex-UFC Fighter Darren Till Will Make His Boxing Debut On July 6

Ex-UFC fighter Darren Till will make his boxing debut against Moh Mutie on July 6.

The news means Till will no longer fight on the undercard of Jorge Masvidal vs. Nate Diaz on July 6. This was after having agreed to box Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. The fight was on a massive stage since Netflix was having its first-ever boxing fight on the platform featuring the headline event of Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson.

“I’m very happy with my opponent. I’ve been a fan of his father for many years and I’ve been a fan of Chavez Jr. too — he is a great fighter who I respect, but make no mistake about it, I am coming to knock him out in the first round. I am happy with where I am in life, and I am coming to make a statement on July 20th in Texas,” Till said 

The Paul-Tyson fight has been rescheduled for November 15 due to Tyson’s inflammed ulcer. Till will now shift his focus elsewhere. He left the UFC after losing to current middleweight champion Dricus Du Plessis at UFC 282. But now he will fight on the Social Knockout 3 event in Dubai, UAE. His opponent, Mutie, has a 2-2-1 record in MMA. His previous fight was a split draw against Mohamed Eldeeb in May.
