Social media sensation Jake Paul’s amazing boxing career remains unblemished, after scoring a unanimous decision over former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva on October 29 at the Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona.

Despite defeating his toughest opponent yet, Paul's Pay-Per-View sales showed a significant decline reaching its lowest point since the start of Paul's professional boxing career. Paul places the blame on the fight taking place during the baseball's Fall Classic and landing on Halloween weekend.

For his next bout Paul plans on fighting between the summer months of July and August, when the sports world is a bit calmer and has more room to attract the number of viewers the 6-0 undefeated boxer is looking for.
