look dat handspeed! dat movement!
Boxing continues to be exposed.
Silva would KO Wilder via body shot. Wilder loves eating bodyshots.
Anderson Silva could have legitimately competed at 205lbs and Floyd is like a 147-153lb guy so just based on that alone, he would have a chance. He's obviously way better than Logan Paul at striking / boxing.
It would be interesting to watch I guess if they really tried.
I don't think so, but cool to see him win. Def didn't expect that
He is about 40 pounds heavier Would rather see him someone over the hill like Golovkin or Kovalev even then he would have a weight advantage
Easy to look good when your opponent is a punching bag.
You want to see Silva get flatlined?
Julio Cesar Chavez Sr == Living legend, one of the greatest boxers of all time
Julio Cesar Chavez Jr == Boy was his dad good
Retired boxers competing against mma fighters, is not an indication of how current elite boxers would do. Do you really think any MMa fighter could stand a chance vs Canelo, Spence or Crawford? If they could, they would. There’s a lot more money at the top of boxing.
Are they even close in weight? And I think for Mayweather he only puts in the work necessary to get the win. Conor and Paul aren’t lifelong pro boxers. Neither is Silva.
I think you’re oversimplifying the whole thing. Mayweather may have taken Paul, and the payday for granted.
I actually tracked down the video of the fight last night, after a Sherbro suggested it. Silva looked good, but the other guy (and I’ve never heard of him), looked like garbage. I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that he even missed weight.
dude there is like 40 lbs difference between them of course he would lol. Weight classes matter.
Make a fair comparison
No. Absolutely not. Still would be a fun fight
Chavez Jr. is largely seen to be an heir who didn’t live up to the expectations of greatness put on him, Canelo took his fire of being the next great Mexican boxer
If Floyd can give Logan the opportunity then he should give Anderson a shot in an exhibition. They are both around the same age and Anderson's skills will at least make it interesting, I can see Floyd choosing to hug it out for half the fight though.
I’ve seen some dumb threads recently, but man.....
Lets not get carried away TS.
You're so scared to point out the obvious, that Silva would obviously deck that old midget right now.
Some people are still disillusioned by the phony mystique of boxers and too intimidated to state the obvious because of backlash of angry old men who want to cling on to that mystique.
Put him in with GGG or canelo
Or drag Froch out of retirement
