MMA legend and former champion of UFC, Vitor Belfort accused Jake Paul of running away from a boxing match against him. According to what was announced this week in the American press, the YouTuber must face Belfort’s eternal rival and also historic in UFC Anderson Silvawith the last details being finalized.

Paul is 5-0 in boxing, having triumphs over former UFC champion Tyron Woodley and former Bellator champion Ben Askren.

“My agent was talking, Jake Paul’s people approached, talked, but they were very afraid. We were about to close and he keeps choosing fights, he keeps choosing who is the guy he has the most characteristics to fight with”, he said. Belfort, who will face Hasim Rahman Jr., son of former heavyweight boxing champion, on October 15, at “Portal do Vale Tudo”.

Rahman Jr. he was supposed to face Paul recently, but the fight was canceled by the event’s promotion for fear that he wouldn’t make weight.

“He (Paul) ran away from Hasim Jr. and Tommy Fury. It was a guy I wanted to fight, only I saw he was running away. Then he looked for a fight with me and started having a lot of problems, ‘it has to be this weight like this’… we see that he starts to demand a lot from the other athlete. I saw that now he chose Anderson Silva because in reality he is always looking for someone and he was very scared because I have a lot of knockout power. He always looks for someone who doesn’t have as much knockout power, slower, doesn’t like to fight someone too fast“, added Belfort, who believes in a victory for Anderson against the YouTuber.

“I think Jake Paul is a guy who created his space, he has a microphone nowadays, but I trust Anderson’s boxing a lot, we expect Anderson to win, but he’s not a silly kid, he always tries to fight someone who doesn’t have so much knockout power. If he doesn’t lose to Anderson, it’s a win for him. I think he’s running away from fighting me because I have knockout power and I’m fast, he tries to fight a more technical guy, who takes the fight in the ‘bain marie’, but I think Anderson takes this fight“.
