Anderson Silva is set to box Jake Paul on October 29th, and while ‘The Spider’ definitely represents the toughest test to date for Paul, there’s no ignoring the age difference between the two men.

Jake Paul is a spry 25 years old, while Anderson Silva is getting a bit long in the tooth at 47.

Team Paul has clearly made a calculated decision that his youth will give him the edge needed to defeat a G.O.A.T. of combat sports.

We’ll see how their math adds up once the event rolls around, as Silva has been looking remarkably good in the three boxing bouts he’s had since leaving the UFC two years ago.

Jake Paul has made better MMA fighter pay his cause as an influencer turned boxer, and he claims he’s directly helping by boxing Anderson Silva.

At the second press conference for Paul vs. Silva, which takes place Oct. 29 at Gila River Arena, Paul expected Silva to make a career-high payday.

“I do think so, I think this could be the biggest payday of his career,” Paul said. “Just because this is like my first big fight. As crazy as that sounds, all the other fights have been like, decent, but this is the first big, big fight, with another massive name who brings a ton of business to the table.

“Tyron Woodley never really sold that many pay-per-views. Ben Askren didn’t sell any PPVs. Nate Robinson never fought.

doesn’t sell PPVs – the stadium was empty when Gib fought. So this is the first time I’m fighting someone who brings just as much to the table as I do.”

It is worth noting that Silva is working on his technique and movement, so you can’t read too much into the amount of power and speed he’s putting behind his combinations.

Still, age comes for all men sooner or later, and Anderson Silva was already drummed out of the UFC after diminished abilities led to a 1-4 skid over his last five fights.

That just makes his recent success in boxing all the more impressive. Silva beat former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. via split decision in June 2021, following that up with a devastating first round knockout win over Tito Ortiz in September.

He looked slick in a May 2022 exhibition boxing bout against MMA fighter Bruno Azeredo in Abu Dhabi, and clearly would have won if scores were being tracked.

None of these opponents were below the age of 35, though. So the question remains as to whether Silva will be able to hang against a young 25-year-old opponent, even one as inexperienced as Jake Paul.

The age difference is so wild, there are photos of Anderson Silva with Jake and Logan Paul as children!

The former longtime UFC middleweight champion is scheduled to take on YouTube star Jake Paul in an 187-pound boxing match on Oct. 29 in Phoenix.

Paul has now been boxing for several years and has compiled a record of 5-0 – with three of those wins coming over MMA champions in Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.

Yet, despite no longer being a complete rookie, many still question Paul’s abilities. That puts a lot of pressure on Silva if he were to lose – or so you would think.

“Definitely not, definitely not,” Silva told MMA Junkie and other reporters on Monday when asked if his legacy is at risk against Paul. “I came here to do my best. I’m training hard every day, and fighters fight.

“You have two fighters inside the ring. Two fighters have 50 percent to win. I have 50 percent and Jake has 50 percent. It doesn’t matter if people say, ‘Oh, it’s not a real fighter or not.’ But when you go inside the ring, you don’t go to stop, you go to kill, you go to die. That’s that’s the point.”
