Undefeated professional boxer, Jake Paul has set sights on former sport world champion, Floyd Mayweather – as well as former UFC middleweight kingpin, Anderson Silva – welcoming a fight against the two in the exact same night, following their exhibition boxing match exploits in Abu Dhabi, UAE this weekend.

Mayweather, who retired from the sport boasting an undefeated 50-0 professional record with a win over former two-weight UFC champion, Conor McGregor in 2017, featured in another high-profile exhibition bout against Don Moore atop a Middle East card last night – turning in a one-sided victory.

For Silva, the former UFC middleweight champion and one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time, also featured in a special exhibition matchup against Bruno Machado, dropping his compatriot with a fifth round knockdown as he turned in an impressive boxing display
