Fighters.com’s tenth-ranked heavyweight “Pitbull” Andrei Arlovski (14-7) has postponed his previously planned professional boxing debut anticipated for the end of September or early October to focus on MMA, Arlovski announced at Arlovski.com Wednesday night.

“MMA now is number one priority for me,” Arlovski assured fans during a video chat, but he hasn’t buried his squared circle aspirations, adding, “Definitely, I want to try [boxing].” Arlovski also announced he’s considering competing at a North American Grappling Association event, saying, “I’ve been working on my jiu-jitsu.”

Glad to hear it AA has always been one of my favorites win or lose. I think that he could do well in boxing but Im just glad to hear that he has been training and focused on a return. War Arlovski!!

his chin is just so damn weak now. I don't see him becoming a top contender ever again, in either sport, because he gets knocked out all the time. Its too bad because he is talented.

He wasn't depressed he was just in a bad mood. Hate to see him when he's angry.

man, you guys got it all wrong, I wasn't pointing a loaded gun at my head because I was depressed. I was just in a bad mood that's all. Totally different things!
