Jake Paul is confident that he will knock out Nate Diaz in their upcoming boxing match, emphasizing the distinction between a UFC champion and a boxer.

Scheduled for August 5 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, the highly anticipated bout marks Diaz’s first fight after leaving the UFC. Jake Paul, a former Disney Channel star, believes Diaz is in for a world of pain as he makes his boxing debut.

Filled with determination and eager to showcase his capabilities, Paul stated to TMZ Sports, “I have a tremendous chip on my shoulders, a chip on both shoulders, returning with a vengeance and the hunger I had when I first entered the sport. The lion lost, retreated into the jungle, learned from everything, improved, trained hard, and now this lion is going to pounce on his opponent.”

Paul vowed that Diaz will pay the price for all the hard work and sacrifices he made during training camp, confidently asserting, “I promise you, on August 5, I will be the first person to put him to sleep. 100 percent, he will be knocked out.”

While Diaz has experienced defeats in MMA, he has never been knocked out cold. In contrast, Paul has earned a reputation for delivering punishing finishes against former MMA fighters like Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley. However, in his most recent fight, Paul suffered his first boxing loss, a split decision against Tommy Fury in their personal rivalry in February.

Paul believes that this loss has made him a stronger fighter, and he anticipates Diaz will have a rude awakening come August. Confident in his abilities, Paul explained, “I will let my actions speak for themselves. When he steps into the ring with me and witnesses my speed, power, and skill, and realizes he can’t touch me, it will frustrate him. At that moment, he will know he made a grave mistake and is about to face humiliation. There is a significant difference between a UFC champion and a highly skilled boxer like myself. My fists will do all the talking.”

Once he secures victory and gets back on track, Paul mentioned the possibility of a rematch with Tommy Fury. However, his immediate focus remains on the upcoming bout with Diaz. Paul expressed, “The Fury rematch isn’t at the forefront of my mind right now. I want to conquer August 5 first. Of course, I desire the Tommy rematch, there’s KSI, and as I progress in skill, more names will emerge. But for now, we will take care of Nate on August 5, put him to bed comfortably, and see what the future holds.”
