MMA Fighter Paddy Pimblett Backs Nate Diaz in Boxing Match
English mixed martial artist (MMA) Paddy Pimblett has expressed his support for his MMA colleague Nate Diaz in an upcoming boxing match against Jake Paul. Pimblett believes that Paul, the brother of Logan Paul, will never become a boxing champion despite his relatively successful boxing career.
Pimblett, known for his skills in the MMA world, hopes for a heavy victory for Diaz, stating, ‘I hope Diaz batters him.’ While Pimblett acknowledges that Paul may continue to sell pay-per-views and make money, he firmly believes that Paul will never reach the level of a true champion in boxing.
Diaz, who recently finished his contract with the UFC after a win against Tony Ferguson in the main event of UFC 279 on September 11, 2022, is now preparing to test himself in the boxing ring. The 38-year-old fighter made his UFC debut in 2007 and has had a successful career in the Octagon.
In contrast, Jake Paul has had a relatively short boxing career but has managed to win six out of seven fights. Despite his desire to become a champion, Pimblett remains skeptical, stating, ‘He’ll never be a champion, never be a champion of the world, so he’ll earn as much money as he can. I think he’s smart, I’ve talked to him. But he wouldn’t know what a real fight was.’
It remains to be seen how Diaz and Paul will fare in their upcoming boxing match, but Pimblett’s support for Diaz adds an interesting dynamic to the fight. Diaz’s experience in the Octagon and his reputation as a skilled fighter could give him an advantage over Paul, who is still relatively new to the boxing world.
