Destanie Yarbrough has responded to recent comments made by fellow ROAD FC heavyweight, Veronika Futina.
Last week, Futina made headlines after refering to Yarbrough as a ‘pig’ and telling her “you are sh*t from the street, you have no upbringing”.
This past Monday, Yarbrough spoke with WMMA Rankings about Futina’s comments and also revealed what her plans are for 2020. Yarbrough says she hasn’t been affected by Futina’s comments and is down for the fight once she has recovered from her neck surgery.
“I’m not worried about it. I’m dying about it with my friends” Yarbrough laughs. “She hasn’t seen me, I should say THEY haven’t seen me fight in two, now about to be three years, because of my neck surgery. But none the less, man once I’m cleared for physical contact again, trust if the fight is offered to me, I will plow through this wannabe Veronika, aka fat phobic“.
“I’ll take it to get the notch in my wins column but Gabi [Garcia] is who I really want of course” she continued.
As well as plans to compete in MMA in 2020, Yarbrough reveals she was scheduled to make her professional boxing debut last month before injuries took over. This is something she is still looking to pursue in the new year.
“I will still be making my boxing debut so who knows MMA might have to wait, they wasted time, boxing has my heart right now. I’m a fighter inside and out.” Yarbrough said.
“I already had neck surgery October 11th. I’m healing and recovering right now. So hell yeah after I’m cleared I’m down for a fight. I was already training for my pro boxing debut which would’ve been last month but found out I had a disc that ruptured twice. It’s a wild story how it happened.” she continued.
Yarbrough (2-1) was last in action at the ROAD FC 45 event in December 2017, winning a unanimous decision over Begimzhan Kasymova.
