JAKE PAUL returns to the ring later this month in a highly anticipated fight against MMA legend Anderson Silva.
The problem child was due to fight Tommy Fury in August but plans fell through after a problem with the Brit’s US visa.
A fight with Hasim Rahman Jr. was also scheduled, but that too fell through due to a problem gaining weight on the heavyweight contender’s side.
Now 47-year-old Silva will compete, a huge step up for Paul, who defeated Tyron Woodley last December.
Silva has been in the boxing ring before, beating former world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. last year before knocking out UFC veteran Tito Ortiz a few months later.
And now the Brazilian is getting one of the biggest paydays of his career when he takes on Paul, who is yet to lose in the square.

what was said
“Anderson Silva is the nicest guy in the world and we love him.” Paul said at the press conference.
“If my opponent is stupid, I will treat him like one D***head and beat his ass and I think people saw that side of me.
“But I respect this man. I will still KO him, but respectfully KO.”
Silva said, “Listen, anything is possible. Jake and [his] Brother trains hard [to become] Boxer. [They] try to [show] respect for the community. The children have good potential and people have to respect that.”
“I don’t feel any pressure anymore because everything I do in this sport and MMA I do with my heart.
“I think now is the next step for me. I’m trying to enjoy my life and if people think that’s too much pressure because I have to prove that I represent the MMA community – no, I represent myself and I represent my fans.”
