“Free” Anderson Silva Unsure of Next Move, Following Upset Win Over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
By FCF Staff
After stunning the boxing world on Saturday night, MMA legend Anderson Silva isn’t sure what he’s going to do next.
The 46-year-old Silva took on Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in a boxing match yesterday and outscored the 35-year-old for a split decision win. Due to the fact Chavez Jr. has over 50 pro-boxing bouts on his record, the result was considered a huge upset.
While discussing what he plans to do next, following the massive win, Silva said this (quotes via MMA Fighting).
“I don’t know,” Silva said. “Now, I go back to my home and my son has a fight very soon, a kickboxing fight and I’ll go help my son. Maybe I fight jiu-jitsu, maybe I fight gi or no-gi, maybe I have next boxing fight. I don’t know. Right now, my focus is helping my son.
“Let me tell you something, I don’t have nothing more to prove to anybody. The boxing community have shown me respect, for my opponent I showed my respect, for the people here in Mexico. I love Mexico. I don’t know. Maybe I fight again in boxing. I’m free right now. I’m a free man. I try to do my best in everything I do in my life. My focus right now is to help my son. My son has a fight very soon and I’ll go help my son in training. I’m training my son for his next fight. The future is amazing. Everything is possible. Maybe I fight again or not. Right now my focus is enjoy my day and help my son to the next fight.”
Silva exited the UFC last October after being stopped by Uriah Hall. The former middleweight champ had lost lost three straight fights, prior to defeating Chavez Jr.
