Jake Paul will take part in his sixth professional boxing bout as he faces Anderson Silva on a Showtime PPV. The event will take place on October 29, 2022, at Gila River Arena in Glendale, AZ.
This is considered Jake Paul’s toughest boxing bout yet. He has previously faced celebrity boxers like Nate Robinson and AnEsonGib, or lesser experienced MMA Fighters so far like Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley. Anderson Silva, on the other hand, has won two bouts last year as he defeated Julio César Chávez Jr. and Tito Ortiz.
Paul was earlier supposed to face Tommy Fury in August, but some visa issues for Fury lead to that fight getting canceled. Fury was replaced with Hashim Rahman Jr. However, that bout was also canceled due to weight issues with Rahman. Will he be able to get past Silva and prove himself as a serious boxer?
