Jake Paul Makes Anderson Silva An Offer After His Victory Over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr

Jake Paul has made Anderson Silva an offer he surely can't refuse.

No, not an offer to fight each other, but rather to be on the undercard of Paul's highly-anticipated boxing match against Tyron Woodley.

After months of back and forth on social media, trash-talking YouTuber Paul is finally set to lock horns with former UFC champion Woodley in August.

And Paul was so impressed with Anderson Silva's recent performance against ex-boxing world champ Julio Cesar Chavez Jr that he wants the UFC great to feature on his undercard.

In the wake of Silva's boxing debut, the 24-year-old tweeted: "Respect to Anderson Silva on the win... vc é uma lenda brasileira [you are a Brazilian legend]!

"Would be an honour to have him vs Roy Jones Jr on the same card as Tyron and I."

In his very first professional boxing bout, Silva looked like a seasoned veteran inside the ring and produced a flawless display to secure a split decision victory over Chavez Jr - although it really should have been unanimous.

Despite parting ways with the UFC, the 46-year-old clearly isn't done with combat sports and his latest victory suggests he could very well have a bright future in boxing.

And after reading Paul's tweet, Silva seemed more than keen to take the social media megastar up on his offer.

"Wow - yes, absolutely," Silva told MMA Junkie.

"I respect both. I have a great relationship with both brothers, and yeah, I think this is possible, too. That's entertaining. It's a fight, but it's entertaining. Logan and his brother are amazing guys. The people like to talk a lot about the guys, but they're very good people. I respect both, and I respect the sport. I think everything's possible. I think it's the next fight maybe with Logan Paul, maybe."

Now imagine that: Logan vs Silva.

Only unlike his record-shattering pay-per-view bout against boxing royalty Floyd Mayweather, you can't imagine 'The Spider' will take it easy on the older Paul brother.
