Jake Paul (6-1-0) is no longer undefeated but remains undeterred. Saturday night at the American Airlines Center, Paul will face former UFC and MMA star Nate Diaz legend in the main event.
We’re probably coming to the close of Paul’s celebrity career unless he can present a strong technical performance against Diaz. Paul admitted he considered hanging up the gloves after losing to professional boxer Tommy Fury in February.
But the world and bettors keep paying up, so roll the dice one more time.
Bettors think he will trounce Diaz, too, and Paul is a -400 favorite. Diaz is +310. Oddsmakers set the over/under on rounds at 7.5. It’s -115 on both ends.
That’s a pretty good underdog bet if your gut is screaming Diaz.
Paul Undefeated Against UFC Opponents
Again, Paul isn’t fighting a professional boxer but a former UFC/MMA fan favorite. He’s undefeated against such opponents.
You won’t see a lot of sweet science from Paul, but he’s proven ability and willingness to throw heavy punches early in fights. He has several first and second-round KOs.
Diaz will underestimate the former reality show star at his own peril. If Diaz gets aggressive, he’d better know how to protect himself in the process. When Paul sees an opening, he’s quick enough and strong enough to put an end to the fight.
