Former NFL wide receiver Brandon Marshall is ready to start a new career.

Marshall. who played 13 seasons in the league and made six Pro Bowls, announced on Tuesday that he was going to begin his professional boxing career as a heavyweight and is calling out some of the biggest names in boxing.

“I’m about to do the unthinkable. Thirteen years, NFL. Thirty-five, phenomenal shape. Just went 24 rounds. I’m about to do the unthinkable. Heavyweight champion of the world. Lotta people that try fail. I promise you. Joshua, Wilder, Ortiz, Fury. All you boys, I can get it. I’m telling you. You’re not that tough, not that strong. Where I come from, and what I’ve been through in my life, I’m built for this. I promise you that. I’ll see you next May.”

Here’s some video of Marshall in action.

If Marshall ever decides to step in the ring with Deontay Wilder he might legit get killed. Wilder is no joke.

Joshua would probably murder him too.

Marshall might want to stick to football and try to get a spot in the XFL if he wants to continue playing sports.
