Pulver Says Sylvia Could Be Taking Bout With Mercer Lightly

0

Jens Pulver talks to Yahoo! Sports about the upcoming exibition match between Tim Sylvia and Ray Mercer:

“I don't know what the goal is. I don't care how old Ray Mercer is, you don't win a world title unless you can thump. He's not to be messed with. We'll have to see what Tim can do with that.” ….

“It's a whole different world. People talk about it (like they're the same sport) but do not confuse the two. Boxing and MMA are two different worlds. You look at someone like a (Floyd) Mayweather or a (Manny) Pacquiao who do that with just the hands, they're incredible.” ….

“I think they're taking this as sparring, and they're going to find Mercer probably isn't taking this as a sparring bout.”
