  • Silakh was once a legit prospect. Sad to see him now fighting at heavyweight. Dude had solid skills, but unfortunately, a glass jaw.

    • @Marc-Right? I had to do a double read to make sure it was the same guy. He was a major prospect and I think he was fighting out of Roy Jones’s camp in Florida, or at least Jones heavily hyped him up. His career didn’t unfold as expected, but I knew he was silently still around. It’s surprising to see him fighting as a heavyweight and getting knocked out by a 6′-7″ heavyweight with only 4 fights. That just seems wrong on so many levels.
