Fight preview Paul vs Diaz

Last week, we got to see two big-time boxing matches and virtuoso performances by boxing’s two best pound-for-pound fighters. This week we get the Jake Paul side show where he fights an MMA fighter in a boxing match. Forgive me if I do not seem excited! What does excite me is making money, so lets do that on this so called fight!

Jake Paul Will Paul continue his dominance of MMA fighters?

Jake Paul is coming off a loss to Tommy Fury, who from the outside looking in seemed like a real boxer. The only problem is Fury was there because of his last name and not his skill level. Even though Fury was limited he still beat Paul, so Jake is back to fighting MMA guys that pose little to no threat.

Paul, 26, stands taller and stronger. He has dedicated years to practicing boxing – exclusively this discipline – in public since beginning five years ago.

MMA and boxing differ considerably. Diaz, 38, is considered an accomplished martial artist. However, in terms of boxing competition, he only offers limited advantages over his opponents.

Paul stands 6-foot-1 with an extended reach of 76 inches and typically fights at weights ranging between 183-192 pounds.

Nate DiazWill Diaz pull the upset

Recently in the UFC Diaz competed at 170 pounds – which corresponds to light heavyweight in boxing – two pounds above super middleweight limit.

Diaz, 12 years Paul’s senior, has seen much more fighting. In pro MMA alone he holds an impressive 21-13 record.

While Diaz was making his debut, the Boston Red Sox were breaking The Curse; Eminem had recently released Encore; JBL was WWE champion; and UFC had yet to welcome women as fighters.

It all began back in October 2004 – many years ago!

Our Betting Pick for Today – Bet Paul by Decision

Diaz’s cardio and conditioning remain top-tier even now, and I do not expect him to suffer the same fate as Ben Askren, Nate Robinson and Tyson Woodley in terms of getting knocked out.

One thing we know about Paul, however, is his ability to open up. Though he couldn’t beat Tommy Fury, Paul has gone undefeated against former MMA fighters like Anderson Silva (whom I think would beat Diaz). The best bet here is to bet Paul by decision which pays out at +300.
