Jake Paul is currently preparing for yet another sensational showdown on October 29th, 2022. The bout that will take place at the Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona, will see him face MMA GOAT Anderson Silva. Meanwhile, the former WBA interim middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jr. seems like the next opponent in line, for Paul’s eternal fight quest. In fact, Paul even offered him tickets to his upcoming fight against Silva.

Eubank Jr. was set to face Conor Benn for a showdown at the O2 Arena. However, the bout was canceled after Benn failed a drug test. It should also be noted that this happened barely three days before the highly anticipated bout. And the British Boxing Board of Control also announced that the fight was called off.

Paul on the other decided that this was the perfect time to reignite their online feud. The duo had previously exchanged words on social media. Especially after Eubank Jr. suggested that they face each other inside the ring.

He had written, “Yo @jakepaul. Once I deal with Benn & you take care of Rahman how about me & you go a couple rounds. I’ll come in at 160 you come in at whatever weight you want.”

However, with the news of the cancellation of Eubank Jr’s spreading like wildfire, in a now-deleted tweet, Paul invited Eubank Jr. to his fight against Silva; he also offered him tickets for the same.
