Nate Diaz has been warned he will get destroyed in a boxing match with Jake Paul.
Diaz makes his professional boxing debut on August 5th against the YouTuber come boxer.
And UFC welterweight Randy Brown believes Paul’s skill are underestimated.
Speaking to Inside Fighting he said,
“I think [Diaz] gets destroyed in a boxing match. Jake Paul is a boxer by this point.”
“We have to give credit where credit is due and he’s a boxer. He might not be an extremely high-level boxer but at this point, he’s boxing primarily. That’s where he spends most of his time whereas a lot of MMA fighters, we have to split our time between so many different things.”
“I think Nate Diaz doesn’t have great boxing, I think he has great elements of boxing, I think there’s things that he incorporates well from boxing in his game and he has great drop punches because he carries his hands very high so there’s no tell and then he just drops them on you.”
After recently seeing Diaz on the pads boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn, had a smilar view.
Speaking to the MMA Hour he said,
“I watched clips of Nate Diaz hitting pads and I was like shocked. You know that it’s going to be a mismatch against Jake Paul. It won’t go four [rounds] unless it’s all a bit of a bluff from Nate with what I saw. When you see people hit pads, you just know. I love Nate Diaz, I’ve only met him a couple times, what a gent, but for me it will be a mismatch against Jake Paul.
