Lashley previously spoke with Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp in 2022 and stated that he was approached about potentially boxing Mike Tyson. The former WWE Champion remains interested in potentially competing in a boxing ring.

Speaking with Alex McCarthy for Mail Sport, Lashley noted that time is ticking in his career, and he wants to box, and he's aiming for a bigger matchup. He also stated that he probably wouldn't face Tyson Fury.

"So I’ve been talking about it for a while now. At sone point in time in your career, you got to stop fighting. But I still have so much fight left in me. But that time is ticking too, where I’m gonna say, ‘All right, get that out of your mind.’ I’ve been offered a bare knuckles fight against a football player. I talked about a couple boxing matches that I’d be interested in doing. MMA is still in the horizon also. But for me to have another fight, I hope, I’m crossing my fingers, I’d like to do some…I personally think boxing is the way to go right now. There’s a lot of buzz with boxing. Am I fighting Tyson Fury? I don’t think so. That’s not where I wanna go. But I do wanna get in that ring, and I wanna have one of those bigger matchups against someone. I mean, I don’t have the time to train for a Tyson Fury. But I train all the time anyway, so I can probably fight somebody that has and boxing experience that still want to do it, such as myself," Lashley said.

Tyson Fury defeated Francis Ngannou via split-decision on October 28.
