Anderson Silva and Tito Ortiz are two household names when it comes to mixed martial arts. However when they face one another on Triller's card this weekend, it will be a boxing contest.

Initially set for a cruiserweight boxing weight limit at 200lbs, the bout will now take place at a 195lbs catchweight, which Ortiz believes is a sign that former UFC middleweight champion Silva — who defeated former world boxing champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in his boxing debut earlier this year — is wary of former UFC light-heavyweight titleholder Ortiz's strength.

“I’ll cut my leg off if I have to in order to make weight. I’ll do it,” Ortiz said during a press conference. “It really just shows that I’m focused. It shows that Anderson respects my power.”

Who will win this particularly intriguing encounter on what is shaping up to be one of the wildest and most unorthodox boxing cards in history?
