Jake Paul vs Anderson Silva: UFC Goat Georges St-Pierre to serve as co-host on Showtime PPV boxing

All the hype around the Paul vs. Silva match just got crazier following the announcement that a known face of the UFC world is set to become the co-host on Showtime pay-per-view. It appears that the UFC is encouraging its supporters to attend this anticipated fight, which will take place on Saturday at Glendale, Arizona’s Desert Diamond Arena.

Most Valuable Promotions announced on social media on Tuesday that former UFC two-division champion Georges St-Pierre has been chosen to co-host the Showtime PPV. In a tweet following the announcement, Paul expressed his gratitude for including St-Pierre as a co-host. Although it’s unclear exactly what role of former three-time welterweight champion’s will be, adding him to the hosting team is a clever move to try and draw MMA fans in.

With that being said, The Problem Child vs. The Spider is the current hot topic in the boxing world. Between these two boxers, none had a previous career in boxing. Paul is the recent sensation, with others being a youtuber-turned-boxer, and Silva is the former MMA star who has the record of one of the best middleweight champions to date in UFC history.

In his past five total appearances as a professional boxer, Paul has won five of them. Among the five wins, four of them were won by KO.

The 25-year-old is upbeat about the fight and is calling out everyone who bet on the 47-year-old. Paul thinks there is still time to reconsider before they lose their money. On the other hand, Luiz Carlos Dorea, the man who’s been responsible for sharpening Silva’s boxing skills, believes this will be nothing but a simple task for the Brazilian-American mixed martial artist.

Paul vs. Silva takes place Saturday at Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona. It is reported by the Most Valuable Promotions, the event will yield the highest grossing gate for boxing and the second-highest gate for combat sports in the arena’s 19-year history, behind only UFC 263.
