Eddie Hearn makes massive Jake Paul vs Nate Diaz prediction

Last updated

Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn recently weighed in on the Jake Paul vs Nate Diaz bout, making a pretty big prediction.

Speaking to Ariel Helwani about the upcoming fight on Matchroom Boxing’s YouTube channel, Hearn revealed that he can see Paul taking the win fairly easily.

‘With Nate [Diaz], no one knows” the promoter began. “He could get completely smashed to pieces in a round, or he could be a great fighter. I hear he used to spar with Andre Ward and stuff like this” Hearn added.

“If you’re asking me, Jake Paul beats him comfortably. I really like Nate Diaz and I hope he wins ’“ mainly so he doesn’t put me to sleep on the concrete! But I think he gets stopped” Hearn concluded.

Paul vs Diaz is set to take place in August, and it is arguably one of the bigger influencer boxing events of the year, with Jake being a major box office attraction and Diaz being a UFC legend.

If Paul does win, then he will likely be going up against KSI at some point in the near future, likely at some point in 2024, if not at some point in 2025.
