LOS ANGELES – Jake Paul and Anderson Silva faced off for the first time ahead of their upcoming boxing match at Monday’s press conference.

Paul (5-0, 4 KOs) will take on the challenge many people have been asking for when he takes on former longtime UFC middleweight champ Silva (3-1, 2 KOs) in an eight-round bout at 187 pounds on Oct. 23 in Phoenix.

With the fight just weeks away, Paul and Silva began their promotional efforts this week, starting with a press conference in Hollywood.

Both men were respectful during the proceedings, and showed that same attitude during their first stare down.
