It’s still a ring. One of the interesting things about wrestling is trying to gauge the wrestlers’ athletic abilities. While they are absolutely professional athletes and can do some amazing things, it is hard to figure out where they stand compared to athletes in other sports. One of the only ways to go about doing this is to find a wrestler crossing over into another sport, and now that seems to be the case again.
There are very few wrestling stories that were as much of a rollercoaster as that of Lars Sullivan. What started as a promising career wound up being a complete disaster for Sullivan, who certainly did not bring all of his troubles on himself. Following a series of rather indefensible statements before he came to WWE, Sullivan dealt with mental and physical health issues and has since left the company. Now we know where he hopes to go next.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Sullivan, real name Dylan Miley, is interested in pursuing a career as a professional boxer. Rather than a traditional career, Miley wants to take part in bare knuckle boxing competitions. Miley, 32 years old, is also said to understand that he is older than most boxers when they start out but wants to make the career move.

Opinion: I’m not sure how well this is going to go for Miley but at least he has something new in mind. Boxing is rather different than wrestling, though they are both combat sports and something that Miley could get used to slightly faster than the average person. Hopefully it works out for him, as wrestling did not quite exactly go as well as he may have hoped.
