Jake Paul-Anderson Silva Rumored For Boxing Match

The polarizing figure known as Jake Paul is expected to meet Anderson Silva later this year in a boxing match.

Jake Paul is ready to take on another former UFC champion.

According to multiple reports, Paul will face Anderson Silva this October in a boxing match. The location for the fight has yet to be determined, and no official word has been made.

Most Valuable Promotions, Paul’s promotion, tweeted that an announcement will be made next week.

“Next week we will announce JAKE PAUL’s next opponent,” the post read. “(Paul) will almost certainly be the underdog.

“He knows that and he wants that.”

Silva, regarded as one of the top mixed martial arts fighters of all-time, is a former UFC middleweight champion. He is 2-0 since transitioning into boxing, including a knockout over Tito Ortiz.

Paul owns a pair of wins over Tyron Woodley and Ben Askren, and is much younger than the 47-year-old Silva. He is a perfect 5-0 overall.
