Former IBF junior welterweight world champion Lovemore Ndou is set to make his Mixed Martial Arts debut on December 1, when he fights Aswin Cabuy for the Combat 8 featherweight title at the Panthers club in Newcastle.
"I have been boxing for 27 years and I'm starting to get bored in this sport, I don't find it as challenging anymore despite my love for it," said Ndou, who ultimately aspires to win a UFC title.
"I know boxing only forms a little part of MMA, but I'm working really hard to master the other parts of mixed martial arts."
Ndou (49-13-2, 31KOs) last saw action as a boxer on August 10th, when he won a ten round unanimous decision over Gary St Clair.
