Jake Paul claims unanimous points decision win over Nate Diaz

Jake Paul dominated professional boxing debutant Nate Diaz through much of their 10-round fight and was rewarded with all judges agreeing he had won the fight.

Diaz, a former MMA star that retired from the UFC in 2022 was lucky not to get knocked out and looked well off the pace against a better-conditioned and sprightly Paul.
Paul was desperate to get back to winning ways after suffering his first professional loss against Tommy Fury in February and had clearly put in a lot of work to be in top condition.
Ultimately, the judges scored the fight 97-92, 98-91, and 98-91. If anything, Paul and his crew should be disappointed he didn't get the knockout and should be more than a bit concerned about how much damage an undercooked Diaz was able to do.
"He's tough, that's what he's known for," Paul said of Diaz after the fight. "Of course (I expected to win the decision). I knocked him down."
