Paul improved to 6-0 and beat his first opponent with previous boxing experience.

He emerges with a long list of potential fights to fight next and here SunSport lists his options.

Nate Diaz

Diaz, 37, is now a free agent after quitting the UFC and teasing a boxing match with Paul, 25.

The former UFC star was in Arizona as teammate Chris Avila beat Dr. Mike on the undercard.

Diaz and his entourage then clashed with Paul’s side ahead of Silva’s fight, leaving the score set to be settled in the ring.

Paul said, “This is just the beginning. I want Nate Diaz.”

Fury, 23, has twice pulled out of the fight against his famous boxing rival, with a rib injury and a US visa problem.

But Paul opened the door to fighting the 2019 Love Islander on the outside just to get his hands on him.

Fury wished Paul well against Silva as he considered another rescheduled fight with the American.

The 38-year-old former UFC middleweight beat NFL legend Le’Veon Bell, 30, on Paul’s undercard and called him out afterwards.

He said: “I want Jake Paul. I want his frosty ass. I’m the guy who’s gonna come in here and expose him.

“If Anderson doesn’t, I’m going to be the one to fuck you up.”

Paul is desperate for his grudge match with his YouTube boxing nemesis.

But since his professional boxing debut, he hasn’t had a chance to get 29-year-old KSI into the ring.

KSI is actively fighting again, returning in August and ready to fight again in January.

A mega-fight with Paul may not come next, but it looks like the two are finally getting closer to each other.

Anderson Silva’s rematch

Although Paul is likely to move on to bigger and better things, a rematch cannot be ruled out.

It was exciting and competitive enough that fans were convinced to watch it again.

And Silva, 47, refused to retire after losing, opening the door for a rematch.

He said: “Absolutely, I will continue to fight. No one can stop me except God.
