Anderson Silva returned to the boxing ring for the first time since 2005 and notched a split-decision victory over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. “The Spider” looked impressive in his outing and outboxed Chavez Jr. leading to speculation that Silva might have a new career path.
Silva expects to return to the ring “soon” as he mentioned in his post fight comments. It’ll be a lot sooner if Jake Paul has anything to do with it.
Silva versus Roy Jones Jr. on the Paul-Woodley undercard would certainly make for even more interesting storylines heading into the event. Paul-Woodley is scheduled for August 28 on Showtime PPV.
