UFC fighter John Howard wishes he could have “finished” alleged Boston Bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev after he broke his nose during a training session three years ago.
“I wish I could have finished the guy,” Howard told Fox Sports.
Howard reportedly trained with Tsarnaev at the Wai Kru gym in Boston and during one session, “Tsarnaev suddenly turned up the heat, going forward with full intensity. Training partners generally go less than full speed in an effort to protect each other and avoid injury, but now Tsarnaev was throwing his best punches with bad intentions.”
After knocking Tsarnaev out, “Howard felt remorse and apologized repeatedly. Now, he wishes he would have went further.”
Tsarnaev had been a “Golden Gloves” boxer and had been training for various fights before he reportedly traveled to Chechnya.
