I wouldn't say it happens ALL the time, but it's fairly common for fighters at the tail end of their careers to be denied licensing for one reason or another. Evander Holyfield has had problems getting sanctioning recently, as have others. I'm sure it happens more than we actually hear about too, as some guys probably get told behind closed doors by insiders that they would be denied before they actually try and get licensing from the commission.

I honestly don't know if I agree with the decision in this case. I don't see why those two can't fight each other, and I bet that they could get the fight sanctioned somewhere else down the road.

My guess is he'll fight whoever he can get paid to fight! It should in theory be an easy pay check for Silvia.

the fact that they reference tim's quick stoppage of sims seems to indicate that they question Sim's not Sylvia's ability to be competitive?

This is what happens when you mess with Dana ... Tim thought he was better than he was and now he has to resort to this.

Vanity, insanity, lack of clarity, failure to see the big picture, stretched FAR from reality...take your pick for reasons why better competition isn't headed his way...heck, let's even blame global warming, since it likely has something to do with it too..and it isn't a leap year...

Those who have seen his twitter see the full picture. Sad..but..true.
