Jake ‘The Problem Child’ Paul finally returns to the boxing ring this weekend and will take on UFC legend Anderson Silva in a blockbuster exhibition clash. Paul’s bouts with Tommy Fury and Hasim Rahman jr. have been called off for various reasons over the last few months, but now he is ready for the biggest fight of his fledging boxing career.
Jake Paul and Anderson Silva will face off on Saturday, October 29, 2022, at the Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona.
Main Event Preview
Jake Paul, 25, is a YouTube star turned professional boxer. Paul has had 5 fights so far, with the first being his Amateur debut against Deji Olatunji at the KSI vs. Logan Paul undercard. Paul then turned professional and made his debut on December 21, 2019, against AnEsonGib, ending the fight in the first round with a TKO. He then faced and defeated former American basketball player Nate Robinson and retired MMA fighters, Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.
This time round, ‘The Problem Child’ will be facing someone with some boxing experience, albeit being 47. It is set to be his toughest fight yet, and it will be interesting to see how both will fare.
Anderson Silva is widely regarded as one of the best Mixed Martial Artists of all time. He is a former UFC Middleweight Champion and holds the record for the longest title reign in UFC history at 2,457 days. This started in 2006 and ended in 2013, and it included a UFC record of 16 consecutive victories. He then lost several fights as age caught up with him, and UFC released him in 2020 at the ripe age of 45. Silva then turned to boxing and won his two professional fights against former WBC middleweight champion Julio César Chávez Jr. and UFC Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz.
Despite being 47, ‘The Spider’ represents a genuine challenge for Jake Paul as he is a prolific striker, and matches up to him in weight, unlike the other Paul’s opponent.

One of the best things about Kodi is that it has thousands of add-ons you can install, most of which are free. On top of that, you won’t come across any advert or pop-up, as is synonymous with free streaming platforms.
To get started, you will need to install Kodi on Firestick if you haven’t. From there, you can install one of the best Kodi addons we’ve listed below. But before that, there are some precautions you need to take.
⚠ Free Streaming Precautions
Free sports streaming has been a concern among broadcasters and content distributors for many years. This is because, in many cases, these streams are pirated.
Broadcasters have collaborated with ISPs and governments to curb the practice, resulting in blocked streams, copyright notices, and legal actions.
For this reason, we highly advise using a VPN if you wish to watch Paul vs Silva for free. This will help hide your activities and anonymize your connection to make it untraceable.
However, you’ll also need to choose your VPN carefully, as some do not offer good privacy, and others are quite slow.
