The ‘Tribute to the Kings’ event headlined by MMA legend Anderson Silva and former WBC middleweight titleholder Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. took place on Saturday, June 19, at Jalisco Stadium in Guadalajara, Mexico. It was promoted by Borizteca Boxing and Toscano Promotions and produced by Global Sports Streaming. As revealed by reports, it seems the promoters of the event wanted to get UFC megastars, Nate and Nick Diaz, to compete in boxing matches at the event as well. However, while Nate Diaz was definitely interested in competing at the event, it seems the UFC prevented him from doing so. Nate Diaz also called out UFC Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman for picking opponents whom he defeated before. Nate Diaz’s sad apology to Kamaru Usman previously leaked as well.
Kamaru Usman is also a huge fan of Valentina Shevchenko. According to ‘The Nigerian Nightmare, he really wants to see her face off against Amanda Nunes, but a fight against Rose Namajunas would be great too for him.
“Shevchenko, dominant as always, always dominant. I don’t know, I mean the only fight for her really is Nunes but man if Rose Namajunas was a little bigger I would love to see that but it is what it is, the champ is the champ. It was a great night of fights,”
