In a display of skill and power, Gabriel Silva delivered a knockout performance against influencer Ben Davis. This is a victory that even his father, UFC legend Anderson Silva would have applauded.
The electrifying showdown took place on the undercard of the highly anticipated match between Geordie Shore sensation Aaron Chalmers and former Love Island contestant Idris Virgo. This event was organised by KSI’s promotional company, Misfits Boxing.
Silva wasted no time asserting his dominance. In the very first round, he unleashed a formidable left hook that sent Davis to the canvas. Although Davis managed to regain his footing, Silva swiftly replicated the same powerful strike.
He ended up sending his opponent down once more. The referee then made the decisive call to end the bout.

Following the intense bout, Silva exemplified sportsmanship by assisting Davis in rising to his feet amidst the celebratory atmosphere.
In a candid interview after the match, Silva extended an open invitation to face off against YouTubers, influencers, and even professional boxers.
Reflecting on the match, Silva remarked: “I thought Ben was going to be a little more prepared, but the moment I looked in his eyes he wasn’t really there. He was there, but he wasn’t really there. He was strong and he could punch, so I was like I’m gonna let the experience do the talking and do it play by play.”
“And as soon as I saw the opening I was taking it. I told you guys I was gonna get it done, so there wasn’t any pressure. I just went in there to have fun and it was a fun night for me for sure.”
Silva concluded by calling out Salt Papi for a showdown on the same card as the highly anticipated matches between KSI vs Tommy Fury and Logan Paul vs Dillon Danis. The event is slated to take place on October 14.
