One of the premier faces of influencer boxing takes the stage as Jake Paul (6-1, 4 KOs) and Nate Diaz are scheduled for eight rounds this Saturday, August 5. The bout will take place at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
Paul suffered a split decision loss to Tommy Fury in February, his first professional loss of his career. He now looks to get back on track. Paul has tons of experience versus former UFC fighters, with two victories over Tyron Woodley along with wins against Ben Askren and Anderson Silva. The 26-year-old reportedly added former multiple world champion “Sugar” Shane Mosley back to his corner for this bout.
Diaz is a 15 year UFC veteran and renowned fan favorite who is making his boxing debut in this bout. The 38-year-old competed and won The Ultimate Fighter 5 back in 2007. Diaz has wins over Donald Cerrone, Jim Miller, and Conor Mcgregor, finishing with a 21-13 record all time. In the last fight of his career he defeated Tony Ferguson back in September 2022. Now Diaz tries his hand in the ring, looking to snap Paul’s dominance against retired mixed martial arts competitors.
