Paul triumphed over Diaz on Saturday in a 10-round boxing match, winning a clear-cut unanimous decision at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. This was Diaz’s first professional boxing appearance, and the post-match discussions quickly turned to Paul’s $10 million challenge for an MMA rematch in Diaz’s familiar territory.
Though Paul boasts a professional boxing record of 7-1, he has not fought in MMA before. Should he choose to honor his word and enter the MMA arena, he will start as a massive underdog.
Online bookmaker BetOnline has placed Paul as a significant 6-to-1 underdog (+650) in the anticipated MMA rematch with Diaz, while the Stockton native stands as a dominating 12-to-1 favorite (-1200). For those new to betting, this means that to make a profit of $100 on Diaz winning, one would have to risk $1,200.
Paul’s MMA fights are exclusively contracted with PFL.
At the press conference following the fight, Diaz seemed open to the idea of the MMA rematch, provided that PFL agrees to co-promote the fight with Real Fight Inc.
“They expressed interest in the PFL idea, and I believe that to make that happen, we’ll have to co-promote and orchestrate a Real Fight vs. PFL event. I’m on board with that. But getting a rematch in any form is my objective,” Diaz articulated.
“We’ll wait to see his decision, to find out if he truly wants to go down that path. If not, I’ll pursue him back in the boxing ring as well. I’m fine with either scenario,” Diaz added.
