Gabriel Silva, son of UFC legend Anderson Silva, is set to make his professional boxing debut on Friday, April 14 at the Commerce Casino in Los Angeles, CA. The event is promoted by Tom Loeffler’s 360 Promotions and will be broadcast live internationally on UFC Fight Pass.
Silva, a 25-year-old native of Hawthorne, CA, will fight in a four-round middleweight bout. He has an impressive 8-1 record in professional kickboxing and has been training under the renowned Manny Robles.
