Jake Paul again shushed his doubters, outpointing his biggest challenge to date in former UFC middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva.
Paul took a unanimous decision by scores of 77-74, 78-73 and 78-73, taking Silva’s shots and returning with his own to cruise ahead in later rounds, knocking the ex-champ down in the eighth and final round.
Paul, who was a solid favorite in betting odds, called out Nate Diaz and Canelo Alvarez afterward as he celebrated his sixth win as a boxing professional.
Here’s what fighters had to say about Paul’s win over Anderson Silva on Saturday at Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Ariz.
