Jake Paul’s record

Paul’s first boxing match was in January 2020. He has since posted a record of 5-0 in the ring. Saturday’s fight will be his biggest test in the ring. However, Silva is now 47, so it is anyone’s guess how competitive the ex-MMA man is.

The YouTuber is over 20 years younger than Silva. Along with pace and stamina, Paul has been hit in the head far less than Silva.

Paul fought in December 2021 and knocked out ex-UFC fighter Tyron Woodley. The bout was a rematch following the fighters’ original split decision.

Anderson Silva’s record

Silva has experience boxing, with a record of 3-1 in the ring. However, Silva’s bouts were spread out over a 20-plus-year period.

The ex-MMA man said he was knocked out twice in training during sparring matches. It isn’t good if Silva was knocked out by a sparring opponent. However, some critics claim Silva’s grasp of English isn’t great and the interpretations were off.

Jake Paul is the favourite to win against Anderson Silva this weekend in Arizona. The YouTuber is 5-0 in the ring with four knockout wins and a decision victory.

Jake Paul vs. Anderson Silva Betting Pick

Paul is 5-0 in the squared circle, while Silva’s best days in the octagon are behind him. The fight has been set up for Paul to win and continue his unbeaten record. Silva could cause an upset, but he isn’t a boxer. Silva is an MMA fighter that grapples and used submission holds. Punches and fist strikes were necessarily his forte. 

Silva is nearly 50 years old. Paul is over 20 years younger than the ex-MMA fighter. It is difficult to believe Silva will win this match. I’m backing Paul to win. However, there isn’t a lot of profit in Paul to win outright.

Paul knocked out Woodley in his previous fight. I’m backing picking Paul to win by knockout against the former UFC great.
