The person I copied this from sold his master copy to an undisclosed 'collector'. I've been sitting on this since 00'. The original owner does not know I made a copy. My copy IS for sale.

Anderson Silva is said to have had two professional boxing bouts. Allegedly on May 22, 1998 Silva took on the then 10-2, Osmar Luiz Teixeira and lost by second round TKO. He stepped back into the boxing ring in August 2005 to face Julio Cesar De Jesus. De Jesus had never boxed before as a professional and Silva won by KO in round two. It is worth noting that no footage or definitive proof of the Teixeira bout is known to exist aside from an entry on the boxing archive website BoxRec.

Even this website has the bout as "unverified." But its worth noting that the weight listed is 165, which fits timewise with Anderson's physical growth. I think it happened, but i guess we'll never know for sure.
