According to MMAWeekly, the proposed Tim Sylva – Ray Mercer boxing match at Adrenaline 3 has been refused the the New Jersey Athletic Control Board. The board game no reason to for not licensing the main event bout, but the likeness of a 33 year old former UFC champion knocking around a 47 year old retired fighter is likely the cause.

Adrenaline promoter and MMA agent, Monty Cox is still looking to put on the boxing match at a later date, indicating June as a possible date.

    tim sylvia, you're a disgrace to MMA. after so many years in the ufc, it has come to this?? the big bucks and fighting crappy people, rather than trying to make a legacy here?

    Awwww. And I was looking forward to this boring boxing match too. Looks like Timmy won't be able to afford that nice scooter in blue.

    The Klitschko brothers would whip him. Either of them. Look what Fedor did to him. Just imagine what a guy tims weight would do if he was better at every category of boxing. That is what would happen if he stepped in with a world class boxer in a boxing match.

    Does anyone really care about this fight one way or the other? And to further the point, Tim's boxing was pretty sucky as for a pro boxer would think. I bet old man mercer might have a chance. BUT with that being said, I STILL wouldn't pay to see that crap.

    That coment shows how unknowing you are about mma and boxing news lol. Mercer and Kimbo had an mma fight. Not boxing. So if Tim loses to Mercer it makes no difference in Kimbo beating Mercer in mma and says nothing about how good Tim Sylvia is at mma fighting. It just means that a veteran boxer beat Tim. Nothing more and nothing less. Dont mean to be rude either.

    exactly steve said just wat i was thinking sylvia would destroy mercer in an mma match everybody with half a brain knows that. taking sylvias ability to shove people into the fence and bully them and taking away his kicks and knees is what makes this fight interesting. mercer used to be a good boxer and im sure he still hit very hard. but comparing kimbos mma fight with mercer to a boxing match is stupid for sure.

    Mercer might be old, but he will whip Tim's ass. I cant see any commission approving that match for boxing, kind of not fair for Mercer, he gave the advantage to Kimbo when the fought in MMA. If this fight happens Tim will just become another highlight film for Mercer like Morrission is.
