ProMMAnow.com’s Dan “The Wolfman” caught up King Mo Lawal and his boxing coach Jeff Mayweather last week at Bellator 85 in Irvine, Calif. Mo talked about his upcoming Bellator debut which takes place this Thursday on Spike TV and gave us some insight into his opponent Przemyslaw Mysiala a.k.a. “Cole Slaw”.
Mo, who has a dual MMA/pro wrestling deal, discussed how his training for TNA Impact Wrestling has been coming along and even called it “harder than MMA”.
He also explained why he has moved his MMA training camp, at least momentarily, from American Kickboxing Academy (AKA), to Las Vegas.
Wolfman posed the question of a possible boxing match with Kimbo Slice on Spike TV once Mo gets through the Bellator light heavyweight tournament this season. Mo liked the idea and Coach Mayweather weighed in with his thoughts saying he loved the idea too. Are you paying attention Spike TV? You’ve got your three-sport star right here!
And, while talking hypotheticals… a certain Quinton “Rampage” Jackson is fighting the last fight on his UFC contract this Saturday. He’s ready to leave the UFC. And Wolfman asked Mo the same thing he asked Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney last week: How about a King Mo vs. Rampage match-up inside the Bellator cage?
What do you think fight fans, you like Wolfman’s matchmaking with a Mo vs. Kimbo boxing match and Mo vs. Rampage in Bellator? … I think he honestly might be on to something there…
