After his big boxing debut win over boxing legend Julio Cezar Chavez, Anderson Silva
is reportedly in talks with Youtuber-turned-boxer Logan Paul for a possible fight

according to Logan’s younger brother Jake.
“I think there’s talks of him maybe fighting my brother, but Anderson’s a nice guy and I
respect him as a legend,” Jake Paul said on TMZ Sports.
Silva, a UFC legend himself recently joined the bandwagon of cross-sport and is
continuing to look for more fights as a boxer.
Initially, people are wanting him to fight another legendary boxer Roy Jones Jr. but the
Logan fight seems more probable at the moment.
“But I think it would be more interesting to see Anderson Silva fight Roy Jones Jr on my
undercard which is what I like originally tweeted out there.
“Because he beat one legendary boxer, let’s see if he can beat another legendary boxer
and maybe there’s a fight for us down the road,” Jake added.
Whether the talks will progress to a done deal, the younger Paul threw much respect to
Silva on his victory over Chavez.
“Anderson’s 46-years-old and I thought he did an incredible job, man.
“He was sticking, moving, bouncing around the ring, having fun, throwing combos, he’s
long and lanky.
“And to come in there and beat Julio Cesar Chavez Jr whose, what, over 50 wins in the
ring as a world champion.
“This just goes to show MMA strikers are also great boxers and I think a lot of people
forget that.
