Freddie Roach: GSP Not Looking To Fight Anderson Silva As A Middleweight

Georges St-Pierre’s (22-2) boxing coach Freddie Roach doesn’t see a super fight between his student and Anderson Silva (32-4) happening in the future.

“Georges has told me he’s not comfortable changing weight,” said Roach on Fight Hub TV. “He likes the weight he’s fighting at and feels that’s where he’s at his best.”

The retired boxer thinks the news about a possible fight between the two is nothing but speculation, and will remain as such.

“I don’t think that fights really going to happen as [Silva’s] too big for him,” said Roach.

Roach noted that he still wants to see St-Pierre fight Nick Diaz (26-8-1 NC) because he has heard he’s the best boxer in MMA right now.
