Chuck Liddell predicts Anderson Silva knocks out Jake Paul: All the best to Jake

Chuck Liddell doesnt see things ending well for Jake Paul in his upcoming boxing match.

The YouTube star returns to the ring on Oct. 29, as he assumes former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva in whats easily his toughest test up to now. Both are set to compete in Phoenix within an eight-round bout at a catchweight of 187-pounds.

Like many, Liddell thinks it is a tough matchup for Paul. He quite definitely likes what he sees from Silva, even at 47 years.

I believe its a dangerous fight for (Jake), Liddell told Fight Hub TV. After all, hes got nil to lose hes fighting Anderson Silva.

Hes got nil to lose, but thats dangerous. Anderson continues to be powerful, hes still sharp, and hes a striker. Jake had the right luck with guys which were wrestlers that tried to strike. A very important factor would be to have OK striking for MMA, but thats as you have to be worried about them taking you down. Once you dont need to be worried about getting removed, then its hard to land those big bombs. But Anderson, hes a striker and contains been focusing on boxing. He looked great in his last handful of fights.

Anderson Silva: I’m ‘definitely not’ risking reputation in Jake Paul boxing match

Silva has looked great since leaving the UFC and switching to boxing. In 2021, Silva took a split decision from Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. after eight rounds and knocked out fellow former UFC champion Tito Ortiz in only 1: 22. Silva also looked formidable within an exhibition bout against Bruno Machado earlier this May.

Liddell thinks this bout wont head to decision and expects the Brazilian to possess his hand raised ultimately.

I believe he wins, I believe he knocks him out, Liddell said. But hey, man, Im interested to view it. All the best to Jake. A child is fighting. He is out there and really fights. You need to respect that.
