Paul scored 77-74 and 78-73 (twice) against 47-year-old former UFC middleweight champion Silva. “I want to say thank you to Anderson. He was my idol growing up and he made me great.

Paul has long been criticized during his astonishing transition to boxing for not fighting real boxers. He made two attempts to close 2021, but his scheduled matches against Tommy Fury and Hasim Rahman Jr. collapsed. A fight against Silva (3-2, 2 KOs in boxing), an opponent many Paul critics said he would never fight, Silva would fight in 2021 with former middleweight title holder Julio Caesar Chavez Jr. They played throughout the game and seemed to steal a few melee rounds, rallying to support Paul in the final 30 seconds with power shots. However, Paul’s size and youth eventually triumphed as Silva had to fight mostly on the spot because of his age. “I want to say thank you to everyone who came. Sometimes I win and I lose, but I’m still training hard because I was born for this.” Paul beat Silva from 83 to 79 according to CompuBox. He hit Silva on the floor with his counter right hand in round 8 and made 42% of all power shots (including a 30-13 edge on his body). Paul hugged Silva after fighting the Brazilian legend. “No one can talk about you, trust me. No one can talk about you.” Paul’s matches were largely mature. Paul made a decent improvement in his last fight, with a late KO win over former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in a rematch in late 2021. In the second half, Paul continued to show his time and dedication, as he played with a three-punch combination that started with his body and finished with a right cross from upstairs.” . There are always haters, but I don’t worry about that,” said Paul. “This is just to show you that you’re chasing your dreams, even if you’re 47 years old. It’s not too late. I am obsessed with this. And I go hard every day. Or you can make your dreams come true. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it.”[Silva] We worked hard throughout the game. The friend was a dog. He was the toughest guy, but I wanted more.” After the victory, Paul turned his attention to calling on Nate Diaz, who will become a free agent when his UFC contract expires, and boxing superstar Canelo Alvarez. The seeds were already planted because Paul and Diaz’s teammates had a backstage brawl shortly after teammate Chris Avila scored a victory opening PPV card.” Nate Diaz is a bitch. He left the pitch to fight me in my locker room,” said Paul. “Nate Diaz, don’t do anything bad. Come on, fight. “Anyone, anytime, anywhere, anyone! Anytime, anywhere!” CBS Sports has been with you all Saturday, so follow the live results and highlights below.
