Jake Paul vs. Anderson Silva LIVE! Fight stream, UK start time, TV channel, updates, undercard results

Jake Paul’s show returns to Arizona tonight as he takes on UFC legend Anderson Silva in a high profile boxing crossover clash. It’s been a frustrating few months for Paul, who saw a showdown with rival Tommy Fury fall through once again before his proposed fight with former sparring partner Hasim Rahman Jr was called off due to a dispute over the weight.

But ultimately, the internet sensation returns to the ring in a bid to extend his professional record to 6-0 and continue to challenge his detractors, after producing a stunning knockout of Tyron Woodley in their December rematch. last year. He’s likely to face his toughest test yet against another MMA great in Silva, who, while nearly 50 now, was one of the UFC’s best forwards and champions in title for a long time and has four professional boxing fights to his name.

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr and Tito Ortiz were both defeated by ‘The Spider’, who will be eager to continue that winning streak and deal a huge blow to Paul’s ambitions in the process.

Live updates


Green against Suarez

Not too many choices between Green and Suarez in the early rounds.

Things have been pretty lukewarm so far, with no fighter showing too much power or skill.

But it was Green who did the best job and should be ahead of the cards.


Green vs Suarez next

Shadasia Green vs. Ogleidis Suarez is next, an eight-round battle in the women’s featherweight division.

Green, a native of Paterson, New Jersey, has an interesting story as a former All-American contender and high school and college basketball star who eventually returned to his first love – boxing.

It’s his toughest test yet against Venezuela’s Suarez, the former WBA featherweight champion.


Flores stops Ortiz Jr in the last lap

Flores sped things up a bit in the fifth, still in complete control in a completely one-sided fight.

But he explodes early in the sixth and final round, unloading on a dazed Ortiz Jr and trapping him near the ropes with blood splattered all over the canvas.

Flores’ hands are blurry as he drives blow after blow, doing everything for the stoppage and getting it as the ref has no choice but to step in and save a stumbling Ortiz Jr.

Relentless from Glendale’s Flores, the 24-year-old moves to 11-0 with his third career save. Never in doubt!

Flores vs. Ortiz Jr.

The punishment continues in round four for Ortiz Jr, whose face is an absolute mess.

Completely dominating the impressive Flores, who will surely want to do it from a distance.

Ortiz Jr certainly isn’t lacking in determination, but he’s beaten around the ring, moving within range and standing out horribly in close exchanges.

Eliezer Silva knocks out Anthony Hannah in opener

Just another result to catch you earlier in Glendale.

Anderson Silva’s sparring partner Eliezer Silva opened the show with an eye-catching second-round knockout of Anthony Hannah in a super welterweight encounter.

Flores vs. Ortiz Jr.

It’s a furious trick from Flores, who landed some huge punches in a punishing third round.

Ortiz Jr has tried to step on the gas for the past two rounds, but he takes huge punishment here, clean punches to the head and body.

His face is bloody and swollen as he collapses into his stool. The corner may have a decision to make as soon as possible.


Anderson Silva: I’m underrated

Also speaking at yesterday’s weigh-in, Anderson Silva said ‘absolutely’ when asked if he thinks people are underestimating his ability tonight.

“I’m so happy to be here. And tomorrow I’m going to do my best and put on a good show for everyone,” he said.

“Of course I can win. I trained for that.


Flores vs. Ortiz Jr.

In our second preliminary bout of the night now, a six-round super bantamweight brawl involving another local favorite in Danny Barrios Flores.

It was a great start from the Arizona native, who shifted well on that opening lap, showing great variety and punching accuracy.

It could be a long night for opponent Edgar Ortiz Jr, who looks comfortably second.


Jake Paul: To be a legend, you have to be a legend

Jake Paul once again tapped into his troublesome alter ego “The Problem Child” ahead of tonight’s main event.

After much respect and niceties between the two men this week, the 25-year-old exploded with an impassioned rant for the cameras after yesterday’s weigh-in.

“I said it was my generation,” he growled. “It’s my time. To be a legend, you have to beat a legend. It’s time for war. I asked him if he was ready.

“It was good, good, good. It was sweet, sweet, sweet. I respect this man. But he tries to take the food off my plate. He tries to stop my running.

“And tomorrow, guess what? I fuck him! I fuck him! I screw it up!”
