You might not be able to teach an old dog new tricks, but it seems you can get an aging Spider to learn a thing or two.
Tonight, Anderson Silva met Julio Cesar Chavez in an eight-round boxing match, and throughout the affair flaunted some of his old striking brilliance.
@SpiderAnderson just beat Julio Caesar Chavez Jr!!!!! Great job champ

I can’t believe I’m writing this. I’m happy that they didn’t rob Anderson Silva. And he can fight a little bit. And @jakepaul would likely beat Chavez, Jr. #boxing
