Since then, celebrity boxing quickly became a highly watched event. Apparently, Weller recently shared a post on his social media, which is making a buzz online.

Upcoming anticipated celebrity boxing fights

The most anticipated fight of the near future is the clash between Youtuber turned boxer Jake Paul, and UFC legend Anderson Silva.

Furthermore, even Jake’s brother Logan Paul has garnered a considerable fan base in boxing. He has previously fought KSI and boxing legend Floyd Mayweather inside the squared circle. Even though he is currently in a multi-year contract with the WWE, he had revealed his intention to make a boxing comeback soon. He is expected to fight on the same card as his good friend and business partner, KSI, in January. However, his opponent has not been revealed yet.
