Bobby Fish to make boxing debut on Mayweather vs. Deji undercard

The 45-year-old will be facing Boateng Prempeh.

Bobby Fish is set to make his professional boxing debut. 

The Global Titans Fight Series announced Thursday that Fish will face Boateng Prempeh on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Deji Olatunji. The show is scheduled for Sunday, November 13, from the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.  

Prempeh holds a professional record of two wins and three losses. 

"@thebobbyfish makes the transition and bold leap from pro wrestling to boxing, debuting against Ghanaian Boateng Prempeh," the promotion wrote on Twitter

On an episode of his Undisputed podcast last month, Fish mentioned he was hoping Tony Khan would give him permission to do a kickboxing fight while he was with AEW. 

"Since May, I have tried to get Tony Khan to sit down with me, no less than five times, to ask permission to do a kickboxing fight," Fish said. "It was actually something that I talked with other people in the company about but I could never nail Tony down. In Tony's defense, he's a busy man, especially on TV days. It is what it is but I wanted permission to do a fight and I couldn't get there with Tony."

Fish's contract with AEW expired over the summer and was not renewed. He recently debuted for Impact Wrestling at Victory Road last month but has yet to wrestle for the promotion.
