Jake Paul vs Anderson Silva: undercard for HUGE boxing clash TONIGHT
YouTube star Jake Paul is returning to the ring tonight for a mouth-watering match against MMA legend Anderson Silva.
A bout with Hasim Rahman Jr. was also scheduled, but that too fell in favor of the heavyweight fighter due to problems in reducing the weight.
Now 47-year-old Silva will move on, which is a huge step forward for Paul, who defeated Tyrone Woodley last December.
Silva has previously entered the boxing ring by defeating former world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., and UFC legend Tito Ortiz a few months later.
Paul's big match against Silva is tonight, Saturday, October 29. The match will be held at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona, USA.
The day before the hardest test of his boxing career, Paul hit the scales at 186.5lb under the catchweight agreed with Silva.
Former UFC star Uriah Hall takes on ex-NFL ace Le'Von Bell on the undercard as his main support.
Silva said: "Listen, everything is possible. Jake and brother are training hard boxers. try to show respect for the community
I try to enjoy my life, and when people think that’s too much pressure because I need to prove that I represent the MMA Community no, I represent myself and represent my fans.”
