“To defeat Anderson Silva, whereas boxing is aloof a really impressive section of his repertoire, he’s aloof no longer a boxer, and he’s 47 years of age,” Hearn continued. “Nonetheless he’s a tough man, he has a predominant profile, he can box, and I bear he’ll be aggressive. I don’t think he beats Jake, because I bear Jake is young, and I bear he can punch somewhat, and I’m intrigued to discover, and I like what Jake’s doing. It’s extra or much less him against the realm.”
