Jake Paul’s professional boxing debut could seem absurd just a few years ago; now it seems inevitable. Paul, an internet personality turned boxer, will finally fulfill his promise of making his mark by facing former UFC star Nick Diaz on Saturday, August 5th in their bout, his first since losing to Tommy Fury earlier in 2023. Paul has trained hard for this momentous battle and hopes it proves that he’s more than just another flash in the pan. These athletes will square off in a 10-round 185-pound contest at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. They will use 10-ounce boxing gloves.
The Saturday evening matchup involving Jake Paul and Nate Diaz is unlikely to be remembered as one of the best boxing matches ever. But whatever happens, it’s evidence of Paul’s ascension. He faced fellow YouTube star AnEsonGib during his boxing debut just under 4 years back. Now, he’s a clear favorite to defeat UFC veteran Diaz, who is going to be completing his professional boxing debut during a 10-round contest at 185 pounds.
Diaz is eager to prove he can compete at this level, as evidenced by his actions leading up to their matchup. Diaz has an uncanny knack of making opponents take notice before fights; here too it has already begun with taunting Paul on social media and promising that they’ll destroy each other inside the ring. Diaz holds a third-degree black belt in Jiu Jitsu and has distinguished himself in the UFC with his striking skills and proven competition history.
Jake Paul, age 26, is a good ten years younger than Diaz, age 38. Having defeated Nate Robinson and previous UFC champ Tyron Woodley by knocking each of them down, Paul is additionally more powerful and bigger. But Paul was defeated by Tommy Fury in his most recent match by a split decision. Diaz is a lot stronger and bigger than Fury, but Fury did demonstrate that Paul could be outboxed. With every round that passes, both men could start running low on gas and become susceptible to big shots; Paul could try for early knockouts to steal one round early.
