Think about it this way, Teixeira lit him up on the feet, as many other fighters have in the past. Those guys dont want to be boxers..
Do you really think Rampage can even be a top 15 in professional boxing? Do you really think he can go at a fast pace in boxing rounds? Even if he "Takes a year off"?
Rampage has these rose tinted glasses when it comes to boxing because he sees them standing up constantly. Even people like David Haye would destroy him.
Its not about what I think its about what he wants to do in his career as he pointed out hes looking at boxing. He is taking the same road that Kimbo Slice took.
I came to grips with Jackson being done with MMA after his mentality changed when he lost to Griffin. He is done with MMA and there is simply no other way to put it.
Page can do well in boxing but his poor movement won't likely get him anywhere close to a title. Regardless boxing, movies, tv shows is what hes interested in now as pointed out in the link above.
If leaving MMA will lead to him being happy then I wish the man success with his future endeavors. Everytime I see him do an interview these days I feel like I am watching a Tupac interview. I can't help but feel somewhat empathetic.
