Oscar de la Hoya Exposes Anderson Silva As Fraud

Former pro boxer Oscar De La Hoya recently stated that Anderson Silva’s win against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. is misleading.



Oscar De La Hoya opens up on Anderson Silva

Silva has racked up boxing wins against Chavez Jr. and Tito Ortiz. He is now set to face YouTube sensation Jake Paul on October 29. The YouTuber has been on a roll inside the boxing ring, knocking out legitimate mixed martial artists in Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley. Now he’ll face his toughest test yet against ‘The Spider’, who has a reputation of knocking out his opponents.

The MMA legend shocked many with a statement win against former world champion Chavez Jr. in June 2021. Meanwhile, De La Hoya believes ‘The Spider’ is getting too much credit for that win.

During an interview with InsideFighting, ‘The Golden Boy’ had this to say about Paul vs. Silva:

“He [Jake Paul] connects with Silva, he’s knocking him out. He touches Silva, he’s going down. Everybody is going based on what Silva did to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Tito Ortiz. Come on. Chavez Jr. wasn’t even 20% of himself.”

With a win against Silva, ‘The Problem Child might also go for a fight against free agent Nate Diaz, who recently ended his stint with UFC. While some have been critical of Paul’s boxing accolades, the YouTuber has built up experience and skill with several years of training. During the same interview, Oscar De La Hoya picked ‘The Problem Child’ to win his next fight:

“That’s a good fight. I’m gonna go with Jake Paul. I’m gonna go with Jake Paul because he seems like he’s getting into the rhythm of things. He doesn’t have too many fights. He loves boxing. He’s a hard worker and has a lot of power.”
