Anderson Silva’s son, Gabriel Silva has continued finding success in his young kickboxing career.
Since making his amateur Muay Thai debut in July 2019, the 22-year-old Silva was said to already have compiled a 5-0 record. The 5th win came this past weekend, garnering him two kickboxing titles as well.
Billed at 6-foot-2 and 163 lbs, the son of the UFC legend put on a show as he beat the previously undefeated Christian Williams (3-0) by TKO. The finish came at the 1:53 mark of round 3, with Silva picking up the IKF Southern California and FightersRep middleweight (165 lbs) titles.
Silva looked much more comfortable on this latest outing, showcasing his improvements, and even showboating like his father — and getting warned by the referee for it.
According to MMA Fighting, Silva “for now” has no plans of transitioning to MMA like his father.
Video of the full pro-am event is embedded below, and you can watch Silva’s entire fight starting at the 2:43:20 mark.
