(Video) Anderson Silva and Julio César Chavez Jr Face Off for Boxing Match

Once Anderson Silva was let go by the UFC, fight fans thought they would never see him compete again. Shortly after, boxing pundits announced that Silva would take on the son of a legend Julio César Chávez Jr, in a boxing match. Now that the matchup is slowly approaching, promotion is building for the event, including a staredown between Silva and Chavez Jr. 

Ever since Anderson Silva’s last loss against Uriah Hall at UFC Vegas 12, fans wondered what was next for “the Spider.” Whispers of retirement were present, with UFC President Dana White saying that Silva won’t compete in the UFC anymore. Once Dana’s words went public, many spectated that Silva could appear in Bellator or even One Championship. However, all promotions said they weren’t interested in Anderson, forcing him to find other ways to compete still.
