Cox speaks about Sylvia v. Mercer: Exclusively on GFL

While first pitched as an MMA contest, Sylvia (24-5 MMA, 0-0 Boxing) will instead turn in his open-fingered gloves for a pair of boxing mitts.

“I was doing Tim Sylvia against Ray Mercer as a headliner,” Cox said. “First I was doing it in MMA. We changed and thought it would be a lot more interesting in boxing.”

Mercer (36-7-1 Boxing) began boxing professionally in 1989. Now 47-years-old, Mercer last fought in a majority decision win over Richel Hersisia (30-2 boxing).
