“The fight is not happening. The reason is Gabriel Silva is a coward and he pulled out”.

“Fuck you bro, fuck you. I’m the champion”.

Misfits Boxing honcho Mams Taylor has commented on social media, indicated the reason for the cancellation stems from Gabriel Silva.

I see people hating on @anthony_foreal

He is 1000% not to blame and did absolutely nothing wrong here. I’ll leave it at that.
