Tim Sylvia can't be used as an accurate representation of MMA vs. boxing. This fight would happen a lot like Couture vs. Toney except instead of submitting him; Cain would punish Fury with some nasty GnP.

QUOTE(#2):

Mercer tko Silva 3 seconds...

Sylvia was obese and washed up when he fought Mercer. And he was the champ in a weak division when most of the best heavyweights were fighting in Pride.

60 pounds overweight Syliva tried to box with old Mercer. Cain would just take Fury down instantly and pound on him like Randy did to James Toney.
