Chris Avila will face a social influencer in his next battle as part of the undercard for Jake Paul vs. Anderson Silva, on the other hand he’s already got an idea for his next opponent with an extensive buddy and teammate serving for the reason that promoter.

During a media conference identify on Wednesday, Avila published he’d up to now been in talks to face multi-time boxing champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., and he hopes to revisit that matchup under the banner of Nate Diaz’s new company, which was once presented merely previous to Diaz completed his UFC contract.

“I plan on getting in the ring with a vet, someone like Julio Cesar Chavez Jr,” Avila urged MMA Fighting on the identify. “Someone I was in talks with fighting a while back. I would like to get in there with him under the Real Fight banner. My team the [Nick Diaz] army.”

Real Fight Inc. is the company Diaz presented to promotion MMA, boxing and submission grappling fits. Diaz is searching for his promoter’s license, and it sort of feels that he already has at least one possible matchup on his arms with Avila teasing the battle with Chavez Jr.

Chavez Jr., the son of legendary boxing champion Julio Cesar Chavez, holds a 53-6-1 record with one no-contest; he suffered a decision loss to Silva once more in June 2021. Silva then carried that just right fortune forward to the battle in opposition to Paul.

As for Diaz, he will minimize up his time between promoting events and working on his non-public battle profession now that he’s a loose agent.

Before he can compete for Diaz and Real Fight Inc, Avila first has to get via his upcoming opponent, Mikhail “Dr. Mike” Varshavski — an internet character and physician, who may well be making his professional debut on Oct. 29.

While Avila has far more battle sports activities actions revel in than his opponent, the 29-year-old fighter out of Stockton, Calif., isn’t taking the issue evenly just because he’s supposed to win.

The novelty surrounding social influencers competing in battle sports activities actions has grown ever since Logan Paul and Jake Paul promoted events that attracted masses of hundreds of target market, earning them masses of hundreds of bucks.

“Dr. Mike” is solely one of the latest crossovers, on the other hand Avila had no downside accepting the battle regardless of his opponent’s revel in.

Even as he hopes for a longer term battle with Chavez Jr., Avila isn’t hostile to each and every different matchup in opposition to a social influencer down the road – as long as they sign the contract.

“It doesn’t even matter,” Avila discussed. “I’ve been fighting real fighters my whole career. I’ll fight anybody. It’s whatever. Whoever wants to fight me, what’s up. I ain’t tripping.”
