Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem, who will face Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva in the semifinal round of the Heavyweight Grand Prix, discusses the upcoming bout, as well as his future fighting plans once the tournament is complete. Overeem reveals an interest in possibly pursuing a professional boxing career and says that with the proper training he believes he could "break some bones" in the squared circle.
Overeem on life after the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix:
"The UFC or maybe boxing... I think (boxing) matches my personality. I'm always looking for a challenge. That came about fighting for K-1 and becoming K-1 Champion - something nobody ever did before. It would be cool to go to boxing and beat the main guy there. I know if you gave me good preparation and good sparring partners, which I can arrange, and with my background already in kickboxing, the K-1 background, I'm sure I can break some bones."
