UFC star Dustin Poirier confirms plans for boxing fight before retirement: ‘I would love to before it’s all done’

Dustin Poirier would like to test out the boxing waters before officially calling it a day.

The trend of MMA fighters trying their hand at boxing seems to show no signs of slowing down. Many top contenders lay out their aspirations to face boxing’s biggest stars such as Sean O’Malley calling out Devin Haney and Jorge Masvidal looking for a Canelo Alvarez fight.

While Francis Ngannou and Connor McGregor have found success in their boxing ventures, there is not going to be big fights out there for every successful UFC fighter.
