MMA legend Silva 47, will be the most decorated striker Paul has faced since making his professional debut two years ago.

But The Problem Child is confident he’ll add the Brazilian’s name to his victim list in emphatic fashion.

He said: “Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva is the most versatile fighter the world has ever seen.

“Just a year ago he outclassed boxing champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., and showed the world why he is often referred to as the greatest fighter of all time.

“Every expert, from MMA to boxing, has said Jake Paul won’t fight Anderson Silva.

“They said Jake Paul is afraid of Anderson Silva, and Jake Paul would lose to Anderson Silva.

“Well, to all the non-believers – Jake Paul is fighting Anderson Silva. It’s an honour to have the opportunity to share the ring with the greatest UFC striker of all time.

“On Saturday, October 29, I will walk humbly into the ring, touch gloves with a living legend and do my best to exterminate ‘The Spider.'”

Silva is relishing the opportunity to further showcase his boxing skills, which he used to beat former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr last June.

He said: “I know that in life everything has its purpose. Nothing comes just by chance.

“So, I thank God for my health, my family and my team for providing me with this opportunity to continue doing the thing that I love the most.

“I believe this will be the biggest combat event of the year and will truly make history in the sport forever. See you on October 29.”
