Monte Cox tells MMAjunkie.com:
?You just have no idea who is going to win,? Cox said. ?I don?t care if he?s 47 (years old). He?s been boxing his whole life, won an Olympic gold medal, went to split decision with Lennox Lewis. Believe me, he?s going to hit hard. Tim?s going to have a hard time.?Tim Sylvia?s last fight came against Fedor, a loss in Affliction: Banned last July.
