Jake Paul vs Anderson Silva takes place this weekend. We have all the key timing information you need ahead of the fight, including the date and full undercard.
The YouTube star was due to fight Hasim Rahman Jr in August, but it was cancelled at late notice because of a dispute over the weight limit.
This will represent Paul's first professional fight in 10 months, with his last bout occurring against Woodley in December. He impressively knocked out the 40-year-old in the sixth round.
However, in Anderson Silva, Paul will face his toughest test yet. The longest-reigning UFC Middleweight Champion in history, the Brazilian-American is undoubtedly one of the top fighters in the history of the sport.
Silva is now 47, but made a successful return to boxing last year after 16 years away from the sport. He recorded a split decision win over Julio Cesar Chaves, before knocking out Tito Ortiz in round one last September.
Therefore, Jake Paul vs Anderson Silva is hotly anticipated, as Paul looks to retain his unbeaten record. Here is all you need to know ahead of the fight:
