LIVE! Paul Vs. Silva on Pay Per View
BLOCKBUSTER BOXING! When Jake “The Problem Child” Paul fights former UFC Middleweight champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva on Saturday, October 29, 2022, inside Gila River Arena in Phoenix, Arizona, live streaming on FITE.tv (and Showtime) pay-per-view, he will face the biggest challenge of his burgeoning boxing career (PPV). The “Paul vs. Silva” fight, which will also pit retired UFC fighter Uriah Hall against former NFL running back Le’Veon Bell, is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. ET, with a PPV price tag of $59.99.
Since leaving the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) in November 2020, Silva, who is recognised as one of the best fighters in MMA history, has appeared to be a legitimate boxer. For this high-profile fight with “Problem Child,” the former UFC middleweight champion needed to defeat MMA star Tito Ortiz and former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in the boxing ring. Although the 47-year-old Silva is undoubtedly nearing the conclusion of his career, fight fans should already be aware that they can never distrust “The Spider.”
Paul, on the other hand, will face the most difficult test of his brief boxing career. The social media influencer has worked hard over the past few years to score some amazing knockouts inside the ring, but before boxing experts start taking the 25-year-old seriously, they need to see more from him. Paul will undoubtedly be in a better position to compete against more seasoned fighters in 2023 if he defeats someone with Silva’s level of combat expertise.
On Friday, Paul and Silva appeared on stage for ceremonial weigh-ins before their weekend headlining performance. Both fighters met in the middle for one more staredown after earlier in the day making weight. Even Georges St-Pierre, a former middleweight and welterweight UFC champion, participated.
