Jake Paul vs Nate Diaz Fight results : In a thrilling showdown on Saturday night at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Jake Paul emerged victorious over Nate Diaz, winning by a unanimous decision. The MMA star, Diaz, was making his debut as a professional boxer and was clearly the audience’s favorite in the packed arena. However, the cheers from the crowd did little sway the outcome of the intense 10-round face-off between 26-year-old Paul and 38-year-old Diaz.
The match, which kept spectators on the edge of their seats, was scored 97-92, 98-91, and 98-91 by the judges. Paul, who managed to knock Diaz down in the fifth round, was confident that he had the upper hand. He believed that Diaz had only won one round. “Although he’s a warrior, you know? I had him hurt in the first round, he kept on coming and no one’s taken that much damage,” Paul said, acknowledging Diaz’s resilience.
Paul showed that he was not only younger but also stronger and a more skilled boxer. His performance during the fight was commendable as he showcased his boxing prowess. “He’s real tough,’’ Paul said of Diaz. “That’s what he’s known for. But tough in this sport doesn’t work.”
The victory bolstered Paul’s record to 7-1, allowing him to bounce back from his first defeat — a split decision loss to Tommy Fury in February. This win also marked his continued dominance over MMA fighters. His previous victories include a first-round knockout against Ben Askren, a decision win and a sixth round knockout against Tyron Woodley, and a unanimous decision victory over Anderson Silva.
After this defeat, Diaz is expected to make a comeback to the UFC, potentially for a trilogy fight against Conor McGregor. Diaz expressed his disappointment after the fight, saying, “It’s tough. I wish I could’ve done better and did better things. …But it’s all good.”
As the dust settled on the boxing ring, it was clear that this was not the end of the rivalry between Paul and Diaz. The two fighters seem to be gearing up for a rematch, but this time, in the MMA cage instead of the boxing ring.
Following their fight, Paul reiterated his $10 million offer to face off against Diaz, one of UFC’s most popular fighters, in mixed martial arts. “Let’s run it back in MMA,’’ Paul said during an in-ring interview. “Make it fair. I won one, now it’s your chance in your home territory. MMA, let’s do it.’’
When Diaz was asked about his preference between boxing and MMA, he responded, “I’ll do either MMA or boxing. MMA sounds good. (Paul) won one and I need to get one back. So I’m down with that.’’
Paul stated that the $10 million would be provided by the Professional Fighters League, though he did not give any details about the specifics of the payout.
Paul also expressed his interest in a rematch with Tommy Fury, who handed the YouTube celebrity his first loss as a pro boxer via a split decision. Since that defeat, Paul has changed his training and strength and conditioning coaches. “I’m going to try to get that back,’’ he said of the loss to Fury. “With this new team I’m a different fighter.’’
In conclusion, Jake Paul defeated Nate Diaz by unanimous decision in a highly anticipated boxing match. The judges scored the fight 97-92, 98-91, and 98-91 in favor of Paul. However, the rivalry between Paul and Diaz is far from over, as they appear to be setting the stage for a rematch, this time in MMA. As both fighters are known for their competitive spirit and determination, fans can look forward to another exciting showdown.
