A showcase boxing card featuring MMA Hall of Fame members Anderson Silva and Tito Ortiz is set to kick off this Saturday night around 10 p.m. ET on Triller Fight Club.
An eight-round professional bout in the cruiserweight division, Anderson Silva and Tito Ortiz both seek to launch lucrative boxing careers as the popularity of entertainment superfights increases.
While Anderson Silva and Tito Ortiz have never made it into the world of mixed martial arts, they will find themselves in the ring putting their hands to the test. Silva comes off a decisive victory over former world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. while Ortiz makes his boxing debut after a long and successful career in MMA.
Frustrated with the 195-pound weight as opposed to his favorite 200-pound fight, Tito Ortiz has a point to prove against skillful and savvy veteran hitter Anderson Silva this weekend on Triller Fight Club.
