😬 Undefeated boxer gives damning verdict after sparring ‘Overweight’ Nate Diaz

Posted by

Undefeated pro boxer, Esquiva Falcao, wasn’t exactly impressed by Nate Diaz’s boxing skills after sparring with him for 12 rounds.

Diaz is due to make his professional boxing debut when he takes on Jake Paul on August 5th.

Falcao gave a pretty damning assessment of the UFC legend’s boxing skills. In a video on social media he said:

“At first I thought he was tired, and in the end it looked like he was dying.”

“His fighting style is crazy. You look at him and say, ‘Oh, he’s tired,’ and then we started sparring. [Coach] Robert [Garcia] told me in the second round, ‘He’s tired already, hold back a little bit and keep the rhythm so he does at least 10 rounds.”

“I held back and kept boxing, and we did 12 rounds. He was tired, but taking punches and throwing, too. [He] is bad, [he] is bad, but since he’s too heavy — he’s overweight, probably around 220 pounds or more — and I’m the only big guy in the gym, I had to do it. But I liked doing it.”

Recently Jake Paul accepted Diaz’s demands of the bout being extended to a ten rounder, but Diaz backtracked saying he’s ‘good with eight.’

Diaz last fought in the Octagon in September last year where he submitted Tony Ferguson in the fourth round of their contest.

Meanwhile Jake Paul fought in February of this year where he was defeated via split decision to Tommy Fury.

Who is getting the win on August 5th? Let us know in the comments.
