I think AA will do well in boxing, make more money, and he is one of few ATM that can say he was successful at both sports. I dont think AA is the type that will be contending for a major title but I wish him the best of luck and maybe he will prove me wrong.... it would be pretty bad-ass to see AA fight for a WBA or WBO title.

It sucks, I want him to do well, but then again i want him to lose and come running back to MMA and his sambo roots.

Haha, Tim Sylvia would murder Arlovski in a boxing match IMO. As it was in most of their fights Andrei's best chance was the puncher's chance. Strap on some bigger gloves and you drastically reduce that puncher's chance. Timmah would walk around the ring using his jab to fend Arlovski off the whole fight IMO

Arlovski is gonna have trouble with his boxing career I think. It wont be long until he is back in MMA.
