“Wow – yes, absolutely. I respect both,” said Silva, “I have a great relationship with both brothers, and yeah, I think this is possible, too. That’s entertaining. It’s a fight, but it’s entertaining. Logan and his brother are amazing guys.”

The people like to talk a lot about the guys, but they’re very good people. I respect both, and I respect the sport. I think everything’s possible. I think it’s the next fight may be with Logan Paul, maybe,” the 46-year-old added.

The respect Silva has for the Paul brothers appears to be mutual as following his victory over Chavez Jr, Jake took to Twitter to congratulate the winner.

Jake, who was last seen registering a knockout win over Ben Askren, is slated to face Tyron Woodley up next, while Logan Paul recently made his exhibition boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather and became the first pugilist in history to not let ‘Money’ win a boxing match.
