Jake Paul backed to snub Tommy Fury and fight UFC legend next year

Anthony Taylor has backed Jake Paul to snub a rescheduled meeting with Tommy Fury and instead pursue a bout with UFC legend Anderson Silva.

The YouTube star will face a second showdown with former opponent Tyron Woodley after Fury withdrew from their scheduled bout with a broken rib and chest infection.

Paul is keen to pursue his dreams of becoming boxing world champion and will likekly move on to other opponents after the breakdown of his clash with Fury.

His sparring partner Taylor has admitted that any bout between Paul and Silva would be a much bigger sell than his previously scheduled bout with Fury.

“I can see Jake in the future fighting Anderson Silva, that is a bigger fight than Jake fighting Tommy,” Taylor admitted to Mirror Fighting . “I honestly don’t see Jake fighting Tommy, there is no point in him fighting Tommy.

“We have seen what he can do as far as press, and he s*** the bed. “The fight was built around Tyson and Jake. Honestly he built that fight, Tommy needs more boxing experience before he fights Jake but he needs more media presence and it is not going to pull in numbers.

“I tell people don’t be surprised if you see Jake fight Canelo Alvarez in three years. I have been around Tommy he doesn’t thrive off of popularity or fame, he thrives off of Tommy. He is not Tyson, he is his own man. The only thing that caught him off guard was his cardio.

“I don’t see Jake taking this fight. He is going to move on and kudos to Jake for fighting Tyron again. Tommy is not fighting Jake any more and I am not saying this because someone told me from Jake’s camp just from a fan aspect.”

Paul has previously been goaded by UFC president Dana White into a potential showdown with Silva as his boxing career outside of the UFC continues.

Silva has recorded two notable victories since his time in the iron square which include bouts against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr and Tito Ortiz.

Jake’s brother Logan had previously held talks to face Silva in the boxing ring, after he went the distance with former undefeated star Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition of his own.

However Paul has admitted his interests lie away from exhibition bouts and he is focussed on his own pursuit of becoming a world champion.

“I would describe his boxing career as something he does for entertainment, for fun and because he loves it. Mine is a lot more serious. I want to become a world champion, 10-0 and retire undefeated,” he told Seconds Out.

“He started his career of a loss, so it’s a little hard to come back from that. But he’s still a great fighter and he still sells tons of pay-per-views.

“I feel like there’s a healthy rivalry in everything we do, I think we’re each other’s biggest competitors because who else is doing what we’re doing?

“So he’s got a bright future in the sport, as crazy as it is.”
