Jake Paul had two fights fall by the wayside over the past few months, and as you can imagine, he is still hungry to get in the ring. He has been teasing a fight for the month of October, and there have been all sorts of rumors pertaining to who he is going to go up against. The main rumor has been none other than Anderson Silva, who has entered the boxing world ever since retiring from MMA.

Today, Jake Paul took to his social media where he confirmed that his next opponent will, indeed, be Silva. There is a huge age gap here but that probably won't matter so much as Silva has decades of experience under his belt. As Paul explained, the fight will happen on October 29th and it will take place in Phoenix, Arizona.
