Watch Wiz Khalifa Get Boxing Lessons From Evander Holyfield
We all know that Wiz Khalifa has a passion for MMA fighting, but it looks like he wants to step into the boxing ring as well.
On Wednesday (Dec. 12), TMZ Sports posted a video of the Taylor Gang Leader getting some boxing lessons from former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield. Ironically (or not so ironically), Wiz has an anthemic song called “Holyfield” on his Rolling Papers 2 project. Talk about art imitating life.
In the clip, you see Holyfield enter Jay Glazer's Unbreakable Performance Center in Los Angeles. It’s the same facility that Wiz has been MMA training for the past couple of years. In another scene, the “See You Again” rapper is hitting the punching bag while Holyfield looks on. Then the veteran boxer shows Wiz the proper way to throw a jab.
Later, the two men chat in the boxing ring where Wiz revealed how he's gaining weight through a strict diet suited for his metabolism.
Wiz also told TMZ Sports that he would consider stepping into the MMA ring if the money is right. Are there any challengers? As for boxing, he might not be ready just yet.
Outside of the ring, Wiz is a champion when it comes to selling music. His elegiac ode "See You Again," featuring Charlie Puth, was recently certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America for 10 million copies sold.
