James Irvin says he has not wasted much time trying to work out a gameplan for when he meets the world's top pound-for-pound fighter Anderson Silva on Saturday in what will be Silva's debut at light-heavyweight.

James Irvin says he has not wasted much time trying to work out a gameplan for when he meets the world's top pound-for-pound fighter Anderson Silva on Saturday in what will be Silva's debut at light-heavyweight.
