Sure, Paul has amassed a 5-0 record thus far in the realm of exhibition boxing, but oddsmakers cannot be serious in projecting him for a win against a seasoned MMA opponent, can they?

Despite the seemingly overwhelming advantages possessed by Silva, the tale of the tape reveals some concerns for Anderson’s corner,

Anderson Silva vs. Jake Paul Tale Of The Tape

Anderson “The Spider” Silva Jake “The Problem Child” Paul
Celebrity Boxing Record 3-1 5-0
Height 6’2” 6’1”
Weight 187.5 Lbs. 191.5 Lbs.
Reach 77.5” 76”
Style Southpaw Orthodox
Age 47 25

The first glaring issue for Silva is his 22-year age difference. He is nearly twice the age of Jake Paul, and that will definitely impact Silva’s overall conditioning and stamina in the ring.

Also, Silva is a legitimate striker, but boxing is not his combat sport of choice. He’s a grappler by nature, and we’ve already seen experienced MMA vets fall to Jake Paul in a boxing ring.

Paul started off by beating a YouTuber and a basketball star, but his last three wins have come against Bellator and UFC combatants. Again, boxing is an entirely different discipline than grappling, wrestling, and other forms of martial arts, so keep that in mind before laying any action on any Paul vs. Silva odds.

Whether you love him or hate him, Jake Paul deserves some credit for his in-ring accomplishments. Boxing betting sites are suggesting that he is almost a 2-to-1 favorite to win his fight this weekend, so readers should take note and don’t take his status too lightly when placing wagers.

There are also boxing prop bets for Paul and Silva posted at most online sportsbooks, with options for round betting and lines asking if the fight goes the distance.

  • Draw or Technical Draw +1200
