ROACH: SIZE AND WEIGHT DIFFERENCE MEAN SILVA-ST. PIERRE WON’T HAPPEN

Famed boxing trainer, Freddie Roach, believes that the difference in both height and weight between GSP and Anderson Silva will prohibit the fight from ever happening. Said Roach:

“I’ve trained both guys and Anderson is a very talented boxer, he is very good. He’s 6-0 as a pro in Brazil. He has more experience than a lot of the guys in the UFC. But the thing is, I just don’t see, he’s just too big, the size difference, they want Georges to go up in weight and him (Silva) to come down in weight and so forth and Georges told me he’s not comfortable coming up in weight. He likes the weight he’s fighting at now, that’s where he’s best and I don’t think this fight is really going to happen because I think he’s (Silva) too big for him.”
