Bio:Michel "Babu" Da Silva (13-0 12 KOs) is currently riding a ten-fight knockout streak. With all 13 of his fights taking place in his native Brazil, signing with Joe DeGuardia, Da Silva hopes to make a splash in the United States in the near future. The 122-pound slugger began his boxing career at the age of 12, aspiring to be like his father, Aluisio Da Silva, who was a former boxer. At 15, Da Silva had his first amateur bout, and shortly thereafter participated in the World Championship in Liverpool, England with the Brazilian boxing team. Finishing with 52 wins in 59 amateur fights, Da Silva turned to the professional ranks at the age of just 18.
Da Silva had this to say about signing with Star Boxing, "I want to thank Star Boxing for the amazing opportunity! I will work hard to achieve my biggest dream of becoming a World Champion! You can bet that that the world will witness me in some amazing fights!"
