Jake Paul has graciously accepted Nate Diaz’s request for a 10-round fight in their upcoming boxing match in August.

In a social media announcement on Tuesday, Paul revealed that Diaz had expressed the desire to extend the fight from 8 rounds to 10 rounds. Paul welcomed this stipulation, marking his first 10-round fight in his boxing career.

“Nate Diaz wants 10 rounds,” Paul tweeted. “I guess he has good cardio. OK Nathan, 10 rounds it is.”

Initially, the fight was scheduled for 8 rounds at 185 pounds, with both fighters wearing 10-ounce gloves. Apart from the change in rounds, everything else about the fight is expected to remain the same.

Diaz’s representative, Zach Rosenfield, confirmed that an official request has been submitted to extend the bout to 10 rounds. However, approval from the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation is still pending.

Diaz is renowned for his remarkable endurance, often growing stronger as fights progress. He has used his exceptional conditioning to overpower opponents in the later rounds on numerous occasions.

In a 2021 match against future UFC welterweight champion Leon Edwards, Diaz nearly secured a late victory in the fifth round, despite trailing for the majority of the fight.

Diaz also demonstrated his durability and resilience in his 2016 rematch with Conor McGregor. Despite enduring an early onslaught from the Irish superstar, Diaz kept pushing forward until the final bell.

It appears that Diaz aims to rely on his conditioning and durability once again as he enters the realm of professional boxing against Paul in August.

The fight is scheduled to take place at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, with the event being broadcast globally through DAZN pay-per-view.
