What’s Next For Jake Paul After Silva Win?

Welcome to the “Fight Freaks Unite Recap” podcast coming off a busy weekend with four notable shows: Jake Paul’s win over Anderson Silva, lightweight Vasiliy Lomachenko’s return to defeat Jamaine Ortiz, Katie Taylor’s win over Karen Elizabeth Carabajal to retain the undisputed women’s lightweight title and lightweight contender William Zepeda’s one-sided domination of Joseph Diaz Jr. We recap all those fights and also get into some recent boxing news.

Here’s what we discussed on this episode (in order):

A full recap of Paul’s eight-round decision win over Silva with discussion about why Paul should get credit and respect for what he’s been doing. Paul improved to 6-0, 4 KOs by beating the UFC legend Silva.

A full recap of Lomachenko’s tough decision win at MSG’s Hulu Theater over Ortiz and the probability that he next challenge Devin Haney for the undisputed lightweight title.

Next, a breakdown of the Lomachenko-Ortiz undercard, which was filled with many top prospects and how Top Rank, by far, has the best crop of prospects in boxing bar none.

We recap Taylor’s lopsided decision over Carabajal in London and discuss the prospect of a rematch with Amanda Serrano next and Taylor’s hope to finally fight in her native Ireland. I also explain why she has not yet fought there as a professional.

Plus: Some talk about featherweight veteran Kiko Martinez pulling off yet another KO upset on the undercard.

Finally, we recap Zepeda’s domination of Diaz, which was so one-sided it probably will make it hard to get top guys to fight him in the future.

Osyk wants Tyson Fury by March?

We hash over the comments of unified heavyweight titlist Oleksandr Usyk during an interview on the Lomachenko-Ortiz show in which he spoke about his hopes to face Tyson Fury for the undisputed title in February or March.

And, finishing up with a rundown of some of the fights and mandatories approved at the recently concluded WBO annual convention.
