Anderson Silva prepares for a fight against Chavez Jr.

MMA legend Anderson "Spider" Silva held his first open boxing training session of his career. Silva shadowboxed, worked on pads, speedbag, heavy bag, and then answered questions from the media.

Silva will fight outside the Octagon for the first time since 2006. On June 19, in a professional boxing match in Guadalajara, Mexico, he will face Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on a pay-to-view.
