On the undercard of the fight between Jake Paul and Anderson Silva, there will be another bout between a YouTube celebrity and a seasoned mixed martial arts fighter. This fight will take place before the main event between Paul and Silva.
Doctor Mike Vs Chris Avila: Jake Paul-Anderson Silva Card
This battle will take place on the same evening as the last one. According to Marc Raimondi of ESPN, Mikhail Varshavski, who is better known as Doctor Mike on the internet, will apparently engage in a four-round boxing contest against Chris Avila, a veteran of the MMA business Bellator.
The fight will reportedly take place against Avila. The preliminary fight is scheduled to take place on October 29 in Glendale, Arizona, and will serve as a warm-up for the main event, which will be fought between Paul and Silva.
He Has Taken an Oath To Do No Harm As A Physician
“As a professional physician, I’ve taken an oath to ‘do no harm,’ but when those ‘exam’ gloves come off and the boxing gloves slide on: all bets are off,” Dr. Varshavski claimed in his statement.
“When those ‘exam’ gloves come off and the boxing gloves slide on: all bets are out.” It’s too late to place any bets. “After obtaining one success, I can’t wait to go on to even greater achievements in the future and get even more of them.
It is quite conceivable that this professional fight with Chris Avila is exactly what the doctor prescribed for him to get his health back on track in order to get his life back on track.”
Although Doctor Mike also has more than 10 million followers on YouTube, unlike Paul, he has lately decided to focus on the sport of boxing rather than continuing his online video blogging. Paul, on the other hand, is still actively posting videos online.
The internet celebrity will now make his debut in the professional ranks after claiming victory in that bout after defeating another internet personality by the name of iDubbbz in an amateur bout back in May. The internet celebrity, who is 32 years old, will now make his debut in the professional ranks after defeating iDubbbz.
Even Paul Got His Start in the Ring By Fighting in Celebrity Fights
In the early stages of his career as a professional boxer, Paul engaged in celebrity fights and earned victories against opponents such as AnEsonGib and former NBA player Nate Robinson.
Later on in his career, Paul competed in mixed martial arts bouts against well-known competitors like Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley, amongst others. Avila, who is presently 29 years old and began his career as a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter in 2014, with an overall record of 8-9 at this point in his career.
Avila is currently competing in the Bellator MMA promotion. Following a pair of consecutive defeats in the Bellator promotion, he bounced back with a pair of first-round knockout victories in the North Iowa Fights. His two wins were through knockout in both cases.
Every one of his victories came courtesy of a knockout victory for him. Since then, he has made the switch to boxing, and in December of 2021, he defeated Anthony Taylor by majority decision to win the bout that they had been training for.
A fight between Ashton Sylve and Braulio Rodriguez is also scheduled to take place as part of the program of upcoming events that is being created by Paul’s Most Valuable Promotions. This bout will take place at some point in the near future.
