Report: Bobby Lashley To Face Bob Sapp In June

New, 37 comments

Former WWE heavyweight champion Bobby Lashley will face MMA veteran Bob Sapp on June 27 at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Miss.

FanHouse has learned that MMA rookie officially signed his bout agreement late last night.

The Sapp-Lashley fight will be promoted by long-time boxing promoters, Prize Fight Promotions. They have promoted famous boxing bouts like Mike Tyson vs. Lennox Lewis in 2002 and Roy Jones Jr. vs. Glen Johnson in 2004. This pay-per-view event will be the first of many they are planning to organize. Expect several familiar MMA names to also appear on the card.

This fight doesn't do anything for Bobby Lashley's career.
