Jake Paul and Nate Diaz successfully made weight at the official weigh-ins for their highly anticipated boxing match at American Airlines Center in Dallas. Paul weighed in at 185 pounds, while Diaz came in just below at 184.9 pounds.
During the weigh-ins, Paul initially seemed uncertain about his weight and took a test run before returning with a banner to strip down and make the weight without any issues. Diaz arrived later and also used the assistance of a banner to successfully make weight.
For Diaz, this will be his first venture into the professional boxing world after a successful career in MMA with 34 bouts, including a long run with the UFC. Meanwhile, Paul, with a boxing record of 6-1, aims to bounce back from his previous split decision loss to Tommy Fury in February.
Out of the eighteen fighters scheduled to compete on Saturday, seventeen successfully made weight. The exception was Chris Avila, who missed the weight for his bout with former UFC standout Jeremy Stephens, weighing in at 170.3 pounds, which was 2.3 pounds over the limit. However, the bout is expected to proceed as scheduled, with Avila facing a penalty of an undisclosed percentage of his purse.
The event is set to be aired on DAZN PPV, with the main card starting at 8 p.m. ET and the preliminary card at 6:15 p.m. ET.
