Hopefully he doesn't spend that much time away from MMA. But he will be making fistfuls of cash boxing.

I smell a comeback by either George Foreman, Evander Holyfield, or Riddick Bowe... or maybe Golota?

Roach has worked with the best, now he thinks if he can turn a MMA fighter into a legitimate HW boxer he would be the best trainer of all time.

I say he beats a few cans and has success at first but gets KO'd whenever he takes that step up in competition.

I really don't understand this logic that Arlovski has a glass chin. If you put a boxer in an MMA match and let him get hit by Tim Sylvia flush on the jaw, I am fairly certain he'd take a tumble. There's no difference between a boxer's jaw and an MMA fighter's jaw.

I think Holyfield and Tyson are fighting in the Middle East in October. AA better hope he can take a 10oz shot.

Yeah, having fought pro heavyweight boxers with 10 oz. and fought a couple pro MMA fighters with MMA gloves, I can say there is a substantive difference between the power generated with each kind of glove. Depending on "how" a person strikes it is more in MMA, although I've found that the striking skill of boxers with their hands is obviouisly much greater.

Good for Andrei , he's getting his money and doing it without Dana and the boys. Bad for us MMA fans. We'll see how it play out but i think he'll be back in MMA
