Paul (5-0, 4 KO) has yet to face a professional boxer, choosing instead to target retired MMA fighters. He has a first-round knockout victory over Ben Askren and holds two wins over former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley. He had a fight with legitimate pro boxer Hasim Rahman Jr. scheduled, but it was canceled with both sides claiming the other backed out.
Silva (3-1) is arguably the greatest MMA fighter of his era. The former UFC middleweight champion had nine successful title defenses between 2006 and 2013 with wins over Rich Franklin (twice), Chael Sonnen (twice), Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson among others. He has fought professional boxers before, beating Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in July of 2021.
