Starting at 8:55, an amateur begginer boxer bangs his head in with some HUGE punches.

You tell me if that's a good indication of his skills.

Imagine him in with Haye. Haye KO 1.

I respect Silva and he's my second favorite MMA fighter behind Rampage Jackson. Usually I talk shit about MMA fighters, but there are a select few who I respect, but with that said. Silva would get sparked against any top 10 cruiser weight

What I want to know is why Silva hasn't called out GSP? Is it cause Pacquiao showed GSP a few moves Pac would beat Silva at 158

Silva couldn't beat a decent amateur, let alone a top 10 cruiser. Funny stuff...

I like Silva as much as anybody in MMA and he's arguably one of the better boxers I've seen there, but he's fighting guys who don't have a ****ing clue how to box to the point he knocked somebody out with a jab whilst moving backward. A top 10 Cruiser weight would toy with him then knock him out.

**** no, he would get torched. He's got great striking in MMA, but in pure boxing he'd get picked apart.

He went straight back and dropped someone with a glass draw who was off-balance, not super impressive.
