Jake Paul’s sparring partners all saying the same thing ahead of fight with UFC legend Anderson Silva

JAKE PAUL’S sparring partners have been left all saying the same thing ahead of his fight with Anderson Silva, according to his coach.

The YouTuber-turned boxer returns over the weekend in Arizona, in his first bout in ten months.

During his hiatus from the ring, Paul, 25, has continued to train non-stop in his Puerto Rico base.

And he has benefited from top-level sparring against the likes of former world champion Chad Dawson, 40, among other contenders.

Paul’s head trainer BJ Flores claimed the feedback from the sessions have all been on the YouTuber-turned-boxer’s power.

Flores told Yahoo Sports: “I’d say he is a prospect and someone to definitely watch out for.

“Regardless of how long he’s boxing, the one thing you really have to respect that he does have what very few people have, real punching power.

“That’s one thing that no matter who’s been in camp, Chad Dawson, Richard Rivera, who just arguably beat Badou Jack, is agreed on.

“Every single person who has been in camp with him and sparred with him says this kid has real, real power.

“He’s somebody to watch out for regardless of his skill level. And you’re going to see a much improved skill level [on Saturday].


“One thing you have to do with Jake is really be conscious of both hands.

“People have seen the right hand, but the left hand is also strong and has been developing.

“Everybody says the same thing: ‘He can really, really punch.’”
