Anderson Silva is not willing to retire despite his 47 years of age after his upcoming fight with YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul.

The legendary MMA fighter has discussed his upcoming fight against Paul, with the bout taking place on October 29 in Phoenix, Arizona.

“No, no, definitely not,” Silva said after being asked whether this will be his last fight.

“I don’t know when I’m gonna stop. I know one day I will stop. But not now.

“I try to challenge myself every day, and especially right now my kid started fighting, and I help my kid.”

A long career

Anderson is considered as the greatest mixed martial arts fighter of all time. He last fought for UFC back in October 2020, when he lost to Uriah Hall by technical knockout.

Despite losing his last three fights, Anderson has looked very solid in the ring. Silva defeated Tito Ortiz in September 2021, but he shone against former boxing champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. who lost to Anderson by split decision in June 2021.

In the meantime, Paul has a 5-0 record, including four knockouts. Silva is actually a slight favorite to win the fight according to bookmakers.

“I’m so lucky because I continue doing something special,” Silva added.

“It’s not about proving nothing for anybody. It’s about a challenge for myself.”
