JAKE PAUL takes on Anderson Silva in the boxing ring tonight in the toughest test of the YouTube sensation’s fledgling career.
MMA legend Silva, 47, steps in to face Paul, 25, in Phoenix, Arizona in a huge eight-round clash.
Though there had been discussions as to whether to fight should even take place after Silva caused concern by saying he was knocked out two times in training for the 187lb catchweight clash with Paul.
The UFC legend – speaking at the open workout – though later clarified that it was just kidology and lost in translation.
The Arizona commission reacted by organising an emergency meeting later that night to discuss the claims.
Silva took an MRI scan on Wednesday, which along with previous medical exams all came back with “pristine” results.
Commissioner Ara J. Feinstein, a trauma surgeon and ringside doctor, passed the Brazilian fit to fight.
