Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, 35 years old, once holding the WBC middleweight belt, thought it would be an easy match against the 46-year-old opponent, but all were wrong. “Spider-Man” Silva, with his flexible movement ability, has continuously taken advantage and has many accurate attacks.
Over 8 rounds, Anderson Silva had 99 hits on target, compared to 53 hits from Chavez Jr. Fortunately, although a referee gave the Mexican boxer, Anderson Silva still won the final with the score 77-75, 77-75 and 75-77, a successful return to the boxing floor after 16 years of “Man” spider” Silva.
In fact, this is Silva’s third professional boxing match. Previously, the 46-year-old boxer lost to Osmar Luiz Teixeira in 1998, then he defeated Julio Cesar de Jesus in the match 16 years ago. Thus, “Spider-Man” has the second victory in professional boxing.
