Jake Paul Wants Anderson Silva vs Roy Jones Jr.

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.

Chavez Jr Misses Weight, Forfeits $100K to Anderson Silva

In the latest chapter of freak show boxing fights, Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. missed weight (again) by two pounds for his highly anticipated matchup against Anderson “The Spider” Silva. Silva, one of the GOATs of MMA, is automatically $100,000 richer for the gaffe by the younger Chavez. The fight is being contested at a catch weight of 182-pounds.

This isn’t Chavez Jr.’s first battle with the scale. He’s missed weight multiple times in his career including a 2019 bout against Daniel Jacobs in which he had to forfeit $1 million. Chavez Jr. normally fights at 175lbs.

Lopez-Kambosos Cancelled! Lopez Tests Positive for COVID-19

The highly anticipated lightweight title bout between Teofimo Lopez and George Kambosos Jr. has been cancelled according to Triller CEO Ryan Kavanagh. Kavanagh, speaking to The Athletic, broke the news that champion Teofimo Lopez has tested positive for COVID-19 and is presenting symptoms. Lopez suffers from asthma and COVID could present a larger problem for someone with the affliction.

The fight is tentatively rescheduled for August 14 adding to an already crowded month of boxing. Lopez-Kambosos is a significant investment for Triller who paid $6 million for the fight.

We wish Teofimo Lopez the best in his fight against COVID-19 and hope for a speedy return to the ring.

Jim Lampley Returns, Joins Triller Fight Club!

Triller is making an attempt at legitimacy on the boxing front or at least the boxing broadcasting front. The upstart promotion has hired veteran boxing announcer Jim Lampley to call their fights.
