The legendary Anderson Silva recently confirmed the boxing challenge against former rival Chael Sonnen. The Brazilian, however, was summoned for another confrontation after the trilogy against the North American. In an interview with 'MMA fighting’, Gegard Mousasi showed himself willing to engage in an unprecedented clash with the former UFC champion.

“I want a fight against Anderson Silva in boxing. Anderson, don’t run away this time,” said Mousasi.

A veteran of combat sports, Mousasi has experienced recent controversy. Involved in the merger of PFL and Bellator, the athlete made public his anger with the purchasing company, alleging a lack of communication and disrespect to honor the contract.

Considered by many to be the best MMA fighter of all time, Anderson Silva will headline 'Spaten Fight Night'. In a challenge that could mark his farewell to Brazil in competitions, the São Paulo native faces his biggest rival in mixed martial arts.
