Anderson Silva Plans To Box For Three More Years
UFC legend Anderson Silva doesn’t want to halt his boxing journey anytime soon.
The MMA legend-turned-boxer has affirmed that he will fight for at least three more years.
“My goal is my last fight is 49 (years old). Forty-nine, I’m done. Probably, I’m done. That is my goal,” he told TMZ. “Fight three more years and done. 49. That’s the number. Maybe I can fight more, but right now my goal is when I turn 49, I stop fighting.”

Silva rose to fame for his sublime knockout in his 13-year-old long UFC career. In his prime, the UFC Hall of Famer was a dominant force inside the octagon.
His record for the longest reign as a UFC middleweight champion is still untouched.
His last UFC fight was a loss against Uriah Hall where he got knocked out at UFC Fight Night 181. A few months after being released by the UFC, the Spider retired from MMA.
He then announced himself to the world of pro boxing by beating former champ Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in early 2021.
Silva is set to share the ring with former UFC champ Ortiz in this weekend’s Triller Fight Club co-main event in Hollywood, Florida.
