Anderson Silva, one of the biggest names in combat sports, returns to the ring this Saturday (15), in São Paulo. This time, for a final confrontation against his biggest rival, Chael Sonnen at the ‘Spaten Fight Night‘ event.

The fight is scheduled for five rounds of 2 minutes each, with 14 ounce gloves and the weight to be beaten is 98 kg, considered married, as it does not belong to any official category. Thus, the traditional confrontation between the two took place on Wednesday, at Praça da Baleia, also in São Paulo.

In addition to the main fight between the stars of the night, the event features other interesting duels, such as the clash between Olympic medalists Esquiva Falcão and Hebert Conceição.

It’s worth mentioning that Kalyl Silva, Spider‘s son, is also scheduled to fight and has a record of two wins and no losses.

History of clashes and expectations for Anderson Silva’s final fight

Anderson Silva’s favoritism is not unfounded. In addition to his greater experience and skill in boxing, his record of victories over Sonnen is a determining factor. In the UFC, the two faced each other twice, both fights for the middleweight belt.

In 2010, Silva won by submission in the last round after being behind on the scorecards for almost the entire fight. Two years later, he defeated Sonnen again, this time via technical knockout.

In fact, the first fight in this trilogy, won by Silva in the last minutes, will be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame in a ceremony in Las Vegas at the end of this month.

Therefore, with the change to boxing, expectations are high, and fans are anxiously waiting to see if Silva will be able to say goodbye to fights with a new victory over the American.

Anderson Silva has a boxing record of three wins and two losses. He defeated big names like Júlio César Chávez Jr. and Tito Ortiz, but recently lost to former YouTuber Jake Paul. Furthermore, Chael Sonnen makes his professional boxing debut.
