Jake Paul is just days away from the biggest test of his professional boxing career, but that won’t stop ‘The Problem Child’ from having a little fun while calling out boxing’s baddest man.
On October 29th, Paul will step into the squared circle for the sixth time against one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time, Anderson Silva. Already looking past his next opponent, Paul is once again taking aim at the Fury family. ‘The Problem Child’ posted a short video clip of himself on Twitter in ‘fat’ form and ready for a move to the heavyweight division to take on ‘The Gypsy King’ once he has taken care of business with ‘The Spider’ on Saturday night.
“In six days I fight Anderson Silva but, after that, fat Jake is moving up to the heavyweight division to fight my brotha from anotha mother Tyson Fury,” Paul Tweeted. “The heavyweight division been real quiet since this announcement.”

Jake Paul is Yet to Step Inside the Ring With a True Professional Boxer
In five total appearances as a professional boxer, Jake Paul has yet to actually face another professional. Kicking off his career in 2020, ‘The Problem Child’ met Ali Al-Fakhri, better known as YouTuber AnEsonGib. From there, Paul moved up the ladder to former NBA star Nate Robinson who he knocked out in 95-seconds.
Paul went on to face other combat sports athletes in former ONE Championship and Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren and former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley on two separate occasions. Criticized heavily for opting to take on opponents that were known more for their wrestling than their stand-up skills, ‘The Problem Child’ finally earned a little bit of respect after announcing that he would next face UFC legend, Anderson Silva.
While 47 years old, Silva has shown to still be dangerous, earning a victory over boxing icon Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in his squared circle debut. Three months later, ‘The Spider’ followed up the win with a first-round knockout of former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz.
