A few days ago, endorsed by the website ‘No Smoke Boxing’, the news that moved the combat sports news emerged: a possible boxing duel between legend Anderson Silva and youtuber Jake Paul scheduled for October. But before ‘Spider’ entered the equation, the internet celebrity almost closed a deal with another great acquaintance of the Brazilian public – Vitor Belfort. The ‘Phenomenon’ even accuses the young American of having fled the confrontation for fear of his knockout power.

In an interview with ‘PVT’, Vitor admitted that his representatives and Jake Paul’s came to try to reach an agreement to finalize the clash, but without success. In the Brazilian’s view, the youtuber imposed many conditions because he wasn’t really interested in facing him in the ring. Now, with a historic rival paired against the American, Belfort reveals supporters in favor of ‘Spider’ and projects a triumph of the compatriot in the noble art.

“My agent was talking, Jake Paul’s people approached, talked, but they were very afraid. His agent talked (with us), he was about to close (agreement), but he keeps choosing to fight, he keeps choosing that he has more characteristics to fight. He ran away from these two guys. With Hasim Jr. he didn’t want to fight because of his weight, he said it was too heavy. Then he canceled the fight with Tommy Fury, we don’t know why. He was a guy I wanted to fight, but I saw that he was running away a little. He tried to fight me, but he started to pose a lot of problems: ‘It has to be at this weight, etc.’ We saw that he demands a lot I saw that now he chose Anderson Silva, because in reality he is always looking for someone. He was afraid because I have a lot of knockout power, he always looks for someone who doesn’t have that, who is more stopped, he doesn’t likes to face anyone too fast”, pinned Vitor, before saying that m is favorite to win the match.

“I think Jake Paul is a guy who created his space. He makes his decisions there, but I trust Anderson’s boxing a lot, I hope Anderson wins. But he (Jake) is not a silly kid, he always tries to fight with someone who doesn’t have knockout power, who goes there… If he draws, not losing to Anderson is already a victory for him. He’s running away from fighting me because he knows I have knockout power and I’m fast, I have agility in my arms. He tries to face more technical guys, who take the fight in a water bath, but I think Anderson takes this fight”, completed the carioca.

Interestingly, Vitor Belfort currently has a boxing match scheduled against a rival who was also paired with Jake Paul, but did not face the youtuber: Hasim Rahman Jr. The Brazilian will go into action on October 15, at an event based in England.
