PLace : The fight is taking place at the Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona.
The year’s most eagerly awaited occasion has finally arrived. On Saturday night in Glendale, Arizona, social media star Jake Paul will compete in a single bout, which will be his most difficult test to yet. In the main event of a Showtime pay-per-view, Paul is scheduled to face MMA great Anderson Silva.
Paul has attempted to set up a fight and a date with three potential opponents so far this year.
Tommy Fury, the half-brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, was the first. When Fury was unable to obtain a visa and enter the United States, that bout was called off.
After that, he made an attempt to arrange a match with Hasim Rahman Jr., the son of another former boxer named Hasim Rahman Sr. But Rahman Jr., a heavyweight, was unable to comply with Paul’s weight restrictions, and the bout was abandoned.
