Jake Paul fight history
Paul has been active, as this marks his third fight of 2023. To start the year, he lost a tough split decision to Tommy Fury in February. This was a milestone of some sort, as Fury was the first true legit boxer Paul had faced. His previous fights have come against other content creators, previous pro athletes, or retired MMA fighters.
The “Problem Child” went back to the norm in his latest bout, defeating Nate Diaz by decision in August. Diaz joined Anderson Silva, Tyron Woodley (twice), and Ben Askren as former UFC pros Paul has scored victories over.
Before Paul takes center stage against another established boxer in August, let’s dive into some recent highlights from his combat career.
