Tim Sylvia Looking to Join the Freakshow

Tim Sylvia’s manager Monte Cox has gone on record saying Tim’s next fight will most likely be at the DREAM/K1 NYE show. Who will he be fighting against? The names being thrown around are our favorite fighter, Alistair Overeem or against everybody’s favorite giant freak, Hong Man Choi. Two different fighters and two very different kinds of fights. One a legitimate challenge, the other a freakshow fight.

In fact, Cox said he has been involved in serious negotiations with both DREAM and Sengoku, and believes Sylvia will fight next on New Year’s Eve for either organization.

“I feel pretty confident that he is going to fight there,” Cox said on Thursday.

Cox added that Alistair Overeem and Hong Man Choi have been discussed as potential opponents for Sylvia, but nothing has been finalized just yet. A fight against either man would take place in a DREAM ring because they are both under contract with that organization. 

Sylvia was rumored to be scheduled to make his DREAM debut on Oct. 25, but his recent injury delayed those plans. Regardless, a high-profile victory on Dec. 31 could be just what the doctor ordered for Sylvia, who prior to the win over Riley, lost four of his last fight bouts, including an embarrassing nine-second loss to Ray Mercer.
