‘The Spider’ made another appearance in the boxing world, but not as a fighter. At 47 years old, the former UFC middleweight champion cornered his son, Kalyl, for his professional boxing debut. 

The 23-year-old combat sports prodigy fought Paulo dos Santos in Brazil. Silva was cornered by ‘The Spider’ and his head coach Luiz Carlos Dorea for the four-round boxing match at 155 pounds. In the final round, Kalyl landed a beautiful body punch that ended the fight. 

Anderson joined his son in the ring and celebrated with a special moment where they both kneeled out of respect. Kalyl posted the full fight on his YouTube channel with the caption:

“Just wanted to give a special thanks to everyone who helped me during this journey ! 🙏🏾 truly thankful to everyone single one of you!”

Kalyl also posted his reaction to the win on Instagram by saying:

“Pro debut started off with a bang ! 4th round KO. Thank you to everyone that’s part of this journey with me. Forever thankful. On to the next !! 🥷🏾🚀🇧🇷”

‘The Spider’ has announced he plans to continue boxing after losing against Jake Paul in October. His 23-year-old son is now showing the results of having his legendary father as a training partner. Anderson also has another son, Gabriel, who has chosen to be a fighter as well.

Before winning his professional boxing debut, Kalyl Silva competed in several kickboxing bout. He won the first two in 2021 and lost his last fight in September. It’s unclear whether he plans to dedicate his time to boxing or continue competing in multiple martial arts disciplines. 

Meanwhile, Gabriel Silva seems dedicated to kickboxing, where he’s a three-time champion, according to his Instagram bio. Gabriel made headlines in November 2021 after suffering a vicious knockout loss. He continued to improve, and now he’s starting to thrive. 

It’ll be intriguing to see if either of Anderson Silva’s sons decides to transition to MMA.
