Albert Kraus has talked about doing pro boxing from time to time over the years, including this year. He recently talked about how he would finally make his boxing debut this year and how he was very happy with how GLORY were treating him and how they were allowing him to give boxing a try.
Kraus will make his boxing debut on September 2 in The Hague, Netherlands on Muay Thai Mania, promoted by Extreme Promotions. A rematch between Nieky Holzken and L'houcine "Aussie" Ouzgni is also supposed to take place on this event.
Kraus recently started up an official Facebook page, where himself and his team have been updating it fairly frequently. Among the updates are a lot of pictures of him training boxing, most notably with currently undefeated English heavyweight boxer, Tyson Fury and his dad/trainer, Peter Fury.
I like this move for Kraus, as it's always nice to get another look at things in the ring and to sharpen up his hands. A lot of kickboxers have tried their hands at boxing, some with success and others without much, but I think this is a good idea for Kraus to stay active and sharp.
