Odds available at FanDuel Sportsbook at time of publishing.
Silva’s resume in the octagon speaks for itself, as he is the longest-reigning champion in UFC history, having held the Middleweight Title for nearly 7 years. However, his boxing experience is minimal with just four official fights under his belt, and only two of those have taken place since 2005. Silva is also now 47 years old, which could work against him.
As for Paul, he may not have the physical advantage in this 185lb catchweight fight that he has had in his 5 previous boxing matches, but being 22 years younger than Anderson could prove decisive.
Paul has won 4 of his 5 fights within the distance, and 3 of those KOs came in the 1st round or 2nd round. The YouTuber will likely go for yet another early finish and look to knock Silva out. But even if that doesn’t happen, the fact that Paul has youth on his side should also give him the edge the longer the fight goes on.
We expect Jake Paul to secure the victory against Anderson Silva and improve his boxing record to 6-0.
