Lars Sullivan training in boxing, hoping to do bare knuckle fighting


In a bit of a career shift, the former Lars Sullivan in WWE is training in boxing with the hope of catching on with a bare knuckle fighting organization.

In this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that the 32-year-old Dylan Miley knows age is not on his side but is planning on competing at some point. At well over 300 pounds, any competition would be in a super heavyweight class unless he was drop a lot of weight.

News broke earlier this month that Sullivan was released in January after telling WWE he was done with the company due to dealing with "crippling anxiety" to the point of not eating during TV taping days. He had not been on TV since the October 23rd SmackDown. 

He told Fightful following the release that he was likely done with pro wrestling.

Sullivan has been in the WWE system since October 2014. He worked in NXT through 2018 and made his main roster debut on the post-WrestleMania Raw in April 2019. Soon thereafter in June, he severely injured his knee and didn't return until last October on SmackDown.
