Frank Gore has refused offers from teams interested in his services because the ex-running back wants to embark on a boxing career, informant Ian Rapoport reported on Sunday.

Gore has yet to officially rule out a hypothetical in the world of football, though he has adamantly declined to identify any clubs that have been interested in his services.

“I trained for both sports – soccer and boxing,” Gore explained. I’ve always loved boxing, so that’s what I did. And we are trying to organize a fight. If we succeed, you will see me in the ring. “

Gore has reportedly trained intensively in boxing over the past five weeks and a meaningful fight is on the cards, according to reports from Rapoport.

“I fell in love with the fact that it’s so difficult,” Gore added. I felt like I was never going to get there. And I have always liked challenges. So I persevered and saw how much better I got after every workout. “

The 38-year-old spent the last season with the New York Jets, rising to third all-time in rushing yards with 16,000. Gore is now only edged by Emmitt Smith (18 355) and Walter Payton (16,726).

Gore has had at least 1,000 yards in 9 of his 16 seasons in the National Football League. In addition to the Jets, he has worn the colors of the San Francisco 49ers, Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills.
