Freddie Roach Says GSP Vs. Anderson Silva Will Likely Never Happen

By Chris Howie

UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre's boxing coach Freddie Roach was interviewed this week and was asked about the possibility of seeing St. Pierre match up with Middleweight Champ Anderson Silva. Roach explained why he feels the fight is unlikely though, for those hoping to see it:

“Anderson Silva hits harder (than Georges St. Pierre) because he's a lot bigger. But Georges is also a good puncher also. But the thing is, size wise, I think Anderson's a little more fluent at this point. He's a lot bigger than Georges, of course. That's why I don't think that fight, they've been talking about that fight happening, I don't think it will happen. I've talked to Georges about it and (Silva is) just way too big.”
