Tex Hollywood - November 2, 2022
I was talking to someone yesterday about this fight, only because we've hung out with Jake Paul together and didn't have any interest in watching his fight,
Knowing Jake Paul is a total troll, his career based on trolling, it is not too shocking that people think his fight with an MMA legend was rigged.
Whether Paul is a beast in his sport, or trains a lot for his sport or not, the public were going to think the fight was rigged if Paul did end up beating the 47 year old Silva. So the only outcome where haters didn't think it was rigged, is if Silva knocked Paul out.
It is a clickbait viral boxing fight where millions of dollars are exchanged, so it is very possible that it was rigged and just part of an elaborate troll, so don't hate the haters for questioning.
From a business perspective,Jake Paul securing a big name means big money for all involed, while giving the people with nothing better to do than buy into viral promoted events by paying the Pay Per View to watch it. Obviously, there are other revenue streams that come in from the fight, like sponsors, selling merch making it a big pay day.
So paying off a fighter to fall, to troll the fans while stilling giving them an entertaining evening, isn't really ALL that evil, everyone gets paid, everyone gets entertained, there are worse ways to manipulate a paying audience, but more importantly, it's not all that unreasonable or far fetched!
Fans or haters have found the precise moment where they think the fight was rigged, or proven to be thrown by SILVA and his response was that he's lost faith in this generation of boxing fans.
My theory is that the vine star took up boxing for fitness, or for fun, who knows he was rich with all the time available to take up any sport. He likely say Mayweather's crazy amounts of money and realized boxing is a big money sport that he could capitalize on, and he has.
That's not to say the fight was rigged, I don't know any of that, but I know enough to not believe anything on the internet, especially from a Youtube/Vine prankster who has made 100s of millions of dollars pranking and trollin'.
His official quote is:
"It went from, 'Jake’s going to get knocked out by Anderson' to, 'Oh, that was rigged.' I think smart people with intelligence are giving me props and respect....I lose faith in my generation and my peers, and us as a society and a world when I see that type of stuff and that type of stupidity. It just sucks. It sucks because I worked so hard for this."
Here's the clip, he did go down easy, but maybe he hit him in the right spot.
Is it an Andy Kauffman comedian troll, is it real, who cares!
