Antonio “Big Foot” Silva’s looks for fight in Japan with HW World GP delayed

Alex Davis, the manager of Strikeforce heavyweight grand-prix semi-finalist Antonio “Big Foot” Silva, has revealed that they want to discuss a fight in Japan in the next couple of months with the California based promotion, explaining seven months without a fight is way too long to wait.

Davis, speaking to ESPN.com, said:

“We can see Strikeforce’s point at delaying the other side of the bracket, so they can promote, but it leaves ‘(Antonio Silva)’ without a fight until at least Sept., which is a long wait.”

“For us it sucks. I gotta keep him in action. What I’ll try to see if they’ll let him fight in Japan. He’s in the tournament so it wouldn’t make any sense to have him fight in Strikeforce. We can’t just wait this long.”
