Lost all respect for Jake Paul today. He beat a 47 year old and is trying to brainwash everyone. Disrespectful #paulvssilva

I thought this fight was a lose-lose for Jake. Either beat a 47 year old man or get beat by a 47 year old man.
I was wrong. It’s worse.
He BARELY beats a 47 year old man#paulvssilva

Anderson Silva,as I said before,is far too irresponsible on the resets and it lost him the fight. All this fight does is further prove that Jake Paul doesn’t stand a chance against most any actual boxer. We knew that,though. Groundhog Day. #paulvssilva

Can’t believe I have to like Jake Paul. Spida really gave him a run for his money til Father Time kicked in at the end rounds. Still, great fight. I was entertained…for free of course! 😂 #paulvssilva #showtimeboxing
