Paul tweeted out the official poster along with the following caption:

The event will air live on Showtime Pay-Per-View.
Paul, 25, looks to go 6-0 as a professional boxer and make his first appearance of 2022 after bouts with Tommy Fury and Hasim Rahman Jr. fell through earlier this year. The “Problem Child” has notable victories over Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley, former MMA champs.
Silva returned to the boxing ring in June 2021, when he scored a split decision win over former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. He followed that performance with a first-round knockout of fellow UFC legend Tito Ortiz in September. The 47-year-old holds a 34-11 (1 NC) pro record in MMA and own the record for the most consecutive successful defenses of the UFC middleweight title at 10.
