Jake Paul Says Of Nate Diaz: “I See It Ending In Four Rounds”

Social media megastar Jake Paul is preparing for another lucrative and highly publicized showdown.

Paul and former UFC title contender Nate Diaz will be mixing it up on August 5. The fight will be held inside the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. The bout is scheduled to go eight rounds. Both men have insisted that they’d throw down for 10 or 12 rounds. Paul even suggested 15 rounds if they’re allowed to do so.

Jake Paul Predicts Nate Diaz Fight

During the kickoff press conference for the big cruiserweight tilt, Jake Paul gave a prediction.

“Look, I think he’s gonna be sharp for a couple of rounds, but there’s just nothing he could do to stop me,” Paul said. “I’m faster, I’m stronger, I’m the better boxer. So, he’s gonna be coming forward, doesn’t have head movement, trying to pressure me. He’s gonna get diced up, and I see it ending in four rounds or less.”

Diaz warned Paul that he’s never been known to back down as the fight gets deeper.

“I just think he’s a better boxer and stronger, and better get it done in four rounds or less,” Diaz said.

While Diaz and Paul appeared to get testy before the fight announcement was even made, with Diaz and members of Paul’s team getting into a confrontation last year, the two were rather cordial during the press conference. While Paul did fire off a few verbal digs at Diaz, the Stockton native didn’t appear to take anything personally and wasn’t in the mood to talk trash.

Paul will be in the ring for the first time since suffering his first pro loss on a split decision at the hands of Tommy Fury, half brother of WBC heavyweight champ Tyson Fury, back in February.

The two had a face off, and there was some light arm shoving. Other than that, everything was handled without incident. According to FanDuel Sportsbook, Paul is a -270 betting favorite going into this clash, while Diaz is the +200 underdog. It’ll be interesting to see who will cash out on fight night.
