    Just saw this...it's a boxing match not an exhibition to be held on June 19 in Guadalajara.

    It’s Jr that’s fighting Silva, Sr is fighting someone else on the same card if I remember correctly.

    Title Edited...yeah it makes sense for the loser Junior to have this silly exhibition; Senior would be fighting an old MMA guy.

    Anderson Silva has looked absolutely horrid lately, all he does is stick his tongue out and shake his head meanwhile all he did was dodge 2 jabs

    WOW, all these ridiculous fights have just bred more ridiculous fights.

    It's all about that money. I won't knock anybody earning money legally but at what point does this start to really damage the sport of boxing?

    I mean to the point it's irreparable?

    Will it take some old faded Sports star getting paralysed or killed in a fight for these types of fight to get more regulated and maybe even banned?

    I don't know if legally you can stop anybody fighting or earning a living fighting but surely states and countries should start looking at banning certain fights.



    Also have to ask.. How are these old fighters, celebrities passing medicals? What are the medical tests? "Is he breathing? Yeah, OK he has passed"
