Jake Paul Declines Nate Diaz’s Boxing Rematch, Seeks MMA Fight Instead


The highly anticipated rematch between Jake Paul and Nate Diaz seems unlikely to happen in the boxing ring, as Paul has expressed his disinterest and instead proposed an MMA fight. In response to Diaz’s public request for a boxing sequel, Paul’s Most Valuable Promotions (MVP) issued an official statement, firmly shutting down any hopes of a rematch in the squared circle.

Key Takeaway

Jake Paul has turned down Nate Diaz’s request for a boxing rematch and instead proposes an MMA fight in the PFL.

According to MVP, Jake Paul will not be pursuing another boxing bout with Nate Diaz. However, both fighters have received an offer to face each other in the Professional Fighters League (PFL). While Paul has accepted the offer, Diaz has yet to respond. It is worth noting that Paul is already signed to PFL for his MMA career.

Previously, Paul had expressed his willingness to pay $10 million to get Diaz in the SmartCage, but Diaz allegedly declined the opportunity. In a response to Paul’s comments, Diaz suggested an MMA fight outside of PFL, specifically highlighting RealFight INC as a potential venue.

Despite declining a boxing rematch, Jake Paul has recently announced his upcoming return to the boxing ring in December. However, the identity of his opponent remains undisclosed at this time.

It appears that if Nate Diaz truly desires redemption against Jake Paul, it will only happen in the realm of MMA, as Paul remains resolute in his decision not to engage in another boxing match with Diaz.
