The day before another football match, Anderson Silva admitted: “Fighting is something that moves away” | battle

At 47, Anderson Silva will work on Saturday, the 14th, third in less than a year. Yes, he’s more often seen boxing than when he was in the UFC. But those who are still anxious to see Spider-Man in action need to take advantage of one and every show by the Brazilian fighter, who this Saturday will be in the helipad at the iconic Burj Al Arab hotel, in Dubai, to visit country friend Bruno Caveira. , in the boxing exhibition up to eight rounds of three minutes each, with a weight limit of 88kg.

World Titans Tour 3 will have a special announcement of the Tournament from 3 pm (Brasilia time), on the card that will be featured in the battle of Floyd Mayweather x Don Moore. Anderson Silva, in a special interview with Fighting at Zoom, he admits he has been at a special time when he can get in the ring, but keep in mind that these events will be less frequent.

– Every high school athlete needs his own, but I’m in a new era. Fighting is still something I love, I love, it is something I can still do, as long as God blesses me to be healthy and able to train expressive and capable. fight at a high level, I will do it. But my life has taken a different path. I have to take care of my company, my business, both in Brazil and in Los Angeles. Here (in Dubai) we are also open for business. The fight is something that is moving away, being abandoned – says the former UFC Middleweight champion (up to 83.9kg).

In a full-time career at the end, where he lived for almost 15 years, Anderson could not fulfill his desire to meet Roy Jones Jr. in boxing. Dana White and the organization never let her go. The Brazilian, however, claims he does not live with frustration, but he also does not want to think about the UFC anymore.

– I have been studying boxing for a long time, I started training many years ago in Corinth. But I think everything that happens in our lives must happen in time. God knows everything, and He puts everything in place at the right time (…). No, nothing at all (out of frustration). In fact, at the time I was talking about this football match with Roy Jones it was nothing more, nothing less, what happened next with Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather. My vision was back, I was already putting the cue back on that, but it did not happen, however … UFC for me was in the past.

Anderson Silva won both of his bouts after leaving the final after losing to Uriah Hall in October 2020. For the first time he won Julio César Chavez Jr., 36, by a decision. Separated at an event in Mexico in June 2021. In September, in Florida, he met former UFC Tito Ortiz and kicked a 47-year-old American like Anderson.

In Dubai, Anderson had a coach at the Nogueira Group, where he stayed at home, since the school was the brothers Rodrigo Minotauro and Rogério Minotouro. And he was on the Nogueira team as well, but in Rio de Janeiro, Anderson met and studied together with Saturday Fighter, who is a MMA fighter and now a winner of the UAE Warriors, in the United Arab Emirates.

– Bruno is a man I admire a lot. We have been studying together at Nogueira Group for several years. It was a fight, but it would be a cool fight for him and I, both of them already know how it works, we did a lot of racing together, we learned a lot together, we know each other. game. I believe it will be a great show.

After Anderson Silva and Bruno Caveira face off, it will be Floyd Mayweather x Don Moore time. The Brazilian did not save praise for the American who retired in 2017 with a record of 50 wins and no defeats.

– There are all the others and there is Floyd Mayweather. The guy is unique in what he manages to create in the boxing world. I have a lot of admiration for his work and for everything he has created in the sport, for all he has done for the sport. It is a homage to the battle of the same card as him. I believe a few athletes can make the switch to another and have this opportunity (which I have). On the same card as Floyd Mayweather is fantastic. The race before Floyd Mayweather was fantastic!
