“Without him, we wouldn’t have had a fight this year. He’s a tough mofo. A legend. I have nothing but respect for him.

“This just goes to show that anyone watching at home, chase your dreams. It’s never too late.

“I started boxing two-and-a-half years ago as a pro and just beat one of the greatest ever because I’m obsessed with this.

“I go so hard every single day. Nothing can get in my way. No distractions.”


Silva, 47, added: “I think the judges got it right. Listen, it’s tough to come inside here and fight a young kid. I tried to do my best.

“I trained hard every day. Jake is better than me today. I don’t have anything bad to say about my opponent.

“I think everybody needs to respect this kid because he’s doing the best job. I trained hard. I’m a warrior.”
