    How much money do you think they would make?

    Keep in mind they are both peg legged, with a lot of battle miles on each. A fight now doesn’t do much for either legacy, people will still say “in their primes it would have been different.” But they would make bank.

    In any case, they are both on winning streaks at the moment. What would the PPV numbers be like, and who would be ideal to promote it?

    Could this be the UFC’s first foray into Boxing?

    Could they still sell out a 50 thousand plus arena?

    Anderson would wreck him in a boxing match. Anderson is a pretty good boxer. I have no idea what kind of money they would even make. Does anyone even want to see that?

    GSP 100-90.

    GSP used to spar at the Grant Boxing Gym in Mtl all the time.

    Sparring partner were usually
    Lucian Bute (9x times IBF defending 168lbs world champ)
    Jean Pascal (WBC and WBA 175 former champ)
    Joachim Alcine (former WBA 154 champ)
    and many others, cause Montreal was a gold mine of boxing talent for the last 20yrs.


    And this was BEFORE getting Freddie Coach in his corner.

    GSP also has Fredy Roach. A trainer so agile he never stops moving

    GSP had a better chance beating him in MMA than in Boxing. So I doubt GSP would agree to box with Anderson.

    Anderson has actually got me interested in watching him box now. I know there's levels to the game and all that, but he legit looks good, hes moving well and seems to have found his flow in boxing.

    Not really into watching retired MMA fighters boxing, GSP included. But i'd watch that fight, Anderson would win comfortably so i think GSP would never even take it.

    Would get decent attention but i dont see it becoming a hyped super fight. Siilva vs paul would sell a lot better, as sad as that is.

    Anderson is bigger and a better boxer. He would handle GSP if he didn't have to work about a TD. It would sell a million PPVs though. Old school MMA fans would pay to see it.

    Hopefully Anderson isn't 59 like Holyfield when it happens....

    GSP is under contract for the UFC for another 15months or so.

    I love how boxing is such a shit show that people get more excited over watching non-boxers do it than they do over watching the best in the world.

    If Wilder had fought Joshua when the fight was ripe it would have changed the sports profile significantly I think. But now it’s rotten

    I used to love the Montreal boxing scene.

    I was at the Bell Centre for Bute-Andrade 1. I have such a fond memory of that sold out stadium trying to will Bute back to his feet in the 12th.

    it was always a great atmosphere with really good production. I had total respect for the women they had dancing by each corner between rounds. those women absolutely danced their (beautiful) asses off

    I also remember going to some outdoor fights in a tennis stadium. is that still a thing?

    Yes, they made one last month with Kim Clavel winning a title

    The best outdoor event they had closed the show under the rain.

    Randall Bailey Vs Herman Ngoudjo, amazing fight.

    Other I remember was Alcine losing his title Vs Daniel Santos
