Boxing fans enjoy Jake Paul for primarily one reason. They want to see someone knock him down or out. Okay, that may not be every boxing fan, but at least a majority. Jake Paul finally found someone to fight him the next Saturday night. That would be none other than UFC/MMA fighting legend Anderson Silva. Yes, Paul is still quite young at 25 years old, but honestly, his level of competition has been more tomato cans than prime rib.
Paul feels confidence, bravado, and probably some trepidation heading into this fight. The catchweight has won five fights with four victories coming by knockout. It has not been pretty, but Paul has some boxing ability. At least, that cannot be disputed. His power and technique have improved greatly in each fight leading up to October 29th versus Silva.
This fight could be very intriguing because Paul is stepping up his caliber of opponent. Even an older Anderson Silva is a jump for Paul. The question may be if this fight is too big of a jump. One thing has to be said. Paul will make this fight a spectacle. There will be a lot of entertainment. That makes Paul’s fights worth the price of admission. Below are the catchweight boxing bets as Paul looks to go 6-0 in his burgeoning boxing career.
The catchweight division is just masking the fact that the Jake Paul-Anderson Silva fight is a fight in the 185-pound area (cruiserweight). The expectation is that one of the fighters will likely not quite make weight. That is why the catchweight designation was assigned here. Weigh-in is next Friday evening. Several reasons point out Paul as a slight catchweight boxing bets favorite.
Now, this is the type of fight which will challenge Paul. The problem is that Silva is a fighter who can probably hurt the younger fighter. Let us be honest. Anderson Silva is no tomato can. The Brazilian pugilist knows several disciplines and does have three boxing fights under his belt. Again, Paul has some power as evidenced by his knockout of Tyron Woodley. Jake Paul comes to fight despite the pomp and circumstance.
Anderson Silva is not backing out of this fight. That is just amusing at this point. Does Paul survive for a decision, or does the boxer get aggressive and go for the TKO or KO? He did it against Woodley in fight one. Paul just kind of stuck and moved and ground out a decision. In fight two, Paul got far more aggressive and nailed his knockout. The nice thing is Paul’s number is not too bad, as seen below.
Anderson Silva is not a pushover, but the Brazilian icon must be careful. It is not enough that most fans are looking to the 47-year-old Silva to do the world a favor. The pugilist does have a few fights under his belt in the “Senior Circuit.” Silva has won three such fights including one against former boxing superstar Julio Caesar-Chavez Jr.
The thought process is that Silva possesses the ability to throw combinations and use some techniques. He has far more boxing experience in the ring and octagon than Jake Paul. That point is undisputed. Now, what is disputed? Silva has a knack for “letting his guard down”. Again, that is where the Brazilian is vulnerable. If he is not careful, Paul does have just enough in his punches to take down “The Spider”.
For the catchweight boxing bets, Anderson Silva believes he can defeat Paul next Saturday. “He telegraphs his punches, and I do not”. Silva is not wrong. There are too many times when Paul is almost predictable. Silva possesses enough raw power to take down his much younger counterpart. He might even knock Paul out, and that prop comes in at +200. That is more likely than a decision, honestly (+500).
Catchweight boxing bets and props as the prime Vegas online boxing odds are out, offering some nice options via BetUS. The good news is bettors can even wage on which rounds the fighters will win. What may present the most value of this fight is all the prop options.
Again, Paul simply fights erratically and all over the place too often. That is the one thing that buoys hope on the Silva side. However, the concern with the Brazilian is there, too, besides the obvious age difference. This is a fight that can end in a few minutes or go eight rounds. Silva’s southpaw stance and two-inch reach advantage could pay dividends next Saturday too.
If one wants to hedge things a little, there is always the Jake Paul by knockout option.
The catchweight boxing bets say take Anderson Silva in a surprise on October 29th.
