Are you a Wanderlei Silva fan? Would you like to see “The Axe Murderer” fight in person, for free? Well, you are in luck! In a recent video blog, Wanderlei announced that he will be holding a three round hard sparring event at his Las Vegas gym, free and open to the public, on Thursday May 21st, at 8 pm.
Silva explains that he will be sparring against a professional, heavyweight opponent who is currently training for an upcoming fight for Strikeforce. Without revealing the name of his sparring partner, Wanderlei does say that the opponent has a record of 23-6 and has a strong wrestling base. He will outweigh Silva by 40lbs and has a two inch height advantage.
Silva goes on to say, “Every week I am going to train with the same guy three rounds, all serious, no stop, same as a fight, for to test. This guy is 240lbs, professional, he is going to fight in the next few months.”
