YouTuber-turned-boxer and founder of Misfits Boxing, KSI, has made his prediction on the upcoming fight between rival Jake Paul and UFC legend Anderson Silva, as he chases a huge fight with Paul.
Jake Paul has caused chaos in the boxing community, knocking out the likes of Tyron Woodley and Ben Askren, since becoming a professional boxer in 2020.
There is a common theme amongst his opponents though, having five wins in his career thus far, but never fighting a professional boxer. His fight Anderson Silva will be his fourth in-a-row against a former UFC fighter, however Silva will be Paul’s first opponent that goes into the fight with a boxing win to his name.
Brazilian Silva has a record of 3-1 and picked up an impressive win over former WBC middleweight world champion Julio Cesar Chavez [53-6-1], suggesting he’ll Paul’s toughest challenge to date. This has given popular Brit KSI plenty of reason to believe that Paul has taken a step too far, as he fights the former UFC Middleweight Champion, who holds the longest title reign in the history of the franchise.
In an interview with Boxing Social, KSI expressed his doubts as to whether or not ‘Problem Child’ Paul can silence his doubters once again.
“Honestly, I think he might have bitten off more than he can chew.”
Jake Paul fights Anderson ‘Spider’ Silva on October 29th at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona. The fight is available in the US on Showtime PPV for $59.99 and via FITE TV in the UK for $20.
