Jake Paul Finally Got It.. The Nate Diaz Fight!
Jake Paul will be fulfilling his desire to compete in a boxing match against former UFC superstar Nate Diaz later this year.
The event, which is expected to be a major spectacle, will take place on August 5th in Dallas, Texas, and will be organized by Jake’s Most Valuable Promotions and Nate’s Real Fight Inc. Fans will be able to watch the fight on DAZN Pay-Per-View.
Jake has been interested in fighting Nate for quite some time. He went as far as challenging him to a boxing match and an MMA fight. In fact, he expressed his desire to fight Diaz to us on two separate occasions in 2022, even calling him out after his victory over Anderson Silva in October.
Jake will be making a comeback in the boxing ring for the first time since his loss to Tommy Fury in February. Meanwhile, Nate (38 years) will be making his professional boxing debut. After his UFC contract expired, Nate became a combat free agent. He boasts an impressive list of victories in his MMA career, including wins against big names like Conor McGregor, Tony Ferguson, Cowboy Cerrone, and Anthony Pettis.
Regarding Jake’s boxing career, he has secured victories over ex-UFC fighters Ben Askren, Anderson Silva, and Tyron Woodley, as well as Nate Robinson and AnEsonGib. With the recent announcement of his fight against Nate Diaz, it seems that Jake’s hopes for a rematch with Tommy Fury will not be realized in the immediate future. It is even possible that Jake and Tommy may never cross paths in the ring again.
