This article was last updated by on

On Saturday night, the highly anticipated boxing showdown between social media sensation turned boxer Jake Paul and UFC veteran Nate Diaz took place, captivating fans worldwide.

Jake Paul emerged victorious with a resounding unanimous decision win, earning judges’ scores of 97-92, 98-91, and 98-91.

The fight between Jake Paul and Nate Diaz showcased all the trademarks of a typical Jake Paul boxing event: weeks of hype, speculation about the future of boxing, and an opponent who gained fame in another discipline.

The event was adorned with numerous celebrities, generating a constant buzz of excitement.

However, despite the spectacle and anticipation, the match provided little insight into Jake Paul’s potential as a legitimate boxer.

Instead, it highlighted his exceptional skills as a promoter, orchestrating a matchup against an opponent 12 years his senior and with limited experience in the boxing ring.

The promotional angle focused on Diaz’s previous victory over Conor McGregor in the UFC, suggesting that he could replicate that success against Paul, but it proved to be an entirely different challenge.

As the fight progressed, Diaz began to find his rhythm in the second round, but he couldn’t land any punches that appeared to significantly hurt Paul.

However, in the fourth round, Diaz’s aggression led to a flurry of hooks that wouldn’t have been out of place in an MMA match.

The fifth round saw Diaz trying to play mind games, pretending to be affected by body blows, but Paul responded with a knockdown and continued to dominate the rest of the round as he did in the early stages of the match.

The following rounds were relatively even, but Diaz seemed to gain momentum in the eighth and ninth, eliciting an enthusiastic response from the crowd. Paul’s punches appeared to lose some of their impact on Diaz.

The final round witnessed continued antics, with Diaz pretending to be fatigued or hurt, though the extent of it was uncertain.

Paul, who had never fought beyond eight rounds before, began to show signs of fatigue, while Diaz remained seemingly amused and composed.

Ultimately, despite the late surge from Diaz, Paul’s control in the earlier rounds resulted in a clear and undisputed decision in his favor, as many had predicted.

Looking ahead, the path for Paul remains uncertain.

His attempt to take on a professional boxer, Tommy Fury, resulted in his first loss, making a rematch with Fury a potential option or perhaps another opportunity to face a moderately famous MMA fighter seeking a lucrative payday.

Regardless of what comes next, one thing is certain: Jake Paul’s journey in the boxing world has been anything but dull, and his ability to generate attention and interest in the sport remains undeniable.
