However, the 49-year-old is not just stopping there. In a partnership with Ryan Kavanaugh, the co-owner of Triller, Snoop Dogg will be launching “The Fight Club”- a brand new professional boxing league.
Speaking to TMZ Sports, Kavanaugh unveiled that the Tyson-Jones bout was indeed the first blockbuster fight of the league and hinted more big fights are in the works.
“This was the first event of a league that we have called ‘The Fight Club,'” said Kavanaugh, “It’s a league owned by Proxima, which is the parent company to Triller and Snoop, and this was the first of many, many events.”
“This is gonna be big,” Kavanaugh went on, “The whole idea is we want to change up the way that boxing is done.”
Boxing is indeed changing itself up in recent times. With more and more celebrities and athletes from other sports donning the gloves inside the ring, the sport is targetting to grasp on the attention of a much larger audience and its the same path that The Fight Club aims to take, and Kavanaugh hints big fights are already in the plans.
“I can tell you that the main fight — I can’t say it yet — but it’s gonna be something that everybody wants to see. If you thought [Tyson vs. Jones Jr.] is big, I think that this would be even larger from a worldwide-appetite perspective and something that people want to see,” Kavanaugh added.
