Doctor Mike will take on MMA pro Chris Avila in the opening match of the Jake Paul vs. Anderson Silva PPV on October 29.

Jake Paul vs. Anderson Silva is going down on October 29, and we now know that YouTube star Doctor Mike will be joining them on the undercard in his pro boxing debut.

Jake Paul and Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva’s upcoming clash is sure to draw eyes from across the worlds of online entertainment and combat sports – and while the headlining acts will surely garner most of the attention, the undercard is not to be brushed off either.

In a surprise follow-up to his bout against iDubbz at Creator Clash, it turns out that Doctor Mike, who outlasted iDubbz at the popular Creator Clash influencer boxing event earlier this year, is part of the major fight that ‘The Problem Child’ teased ahead of the reveal.

The Doc, real name Mikhail Varshavski, will be taking on Chris Avila in the opening match of the pay-per-view event.

As Paul’s company MostValuablePromotions stated in their announcement, this makes the YouTuber only the second creator to cross off a big benchmark in the world of boxing.

“Other than Jake Paul, Dr. Mike is the first ‘YouTube creator’ to get in the ring with a professional fighter in a sanctioned pro fight,” the tweet reads.

While this will be Varshavski’s official debut, Avila is an MMA veteran who holds a 1-1 record as a professional boxer with his win coming in a Majority Decision against Anthony Taylor back in 2021.

The final warm-up match will see 18-year-old Ashton Sylve take on Braulio Rodriguez in what is sure to be an action-packed clash. The two fighters have a combined 24 KOs to their name, and as Sylve’s first fight under the MVP banner, the stage is set for an explosive ending.
