The war of words between Jake Paul and Nate Diaz has been heating up as they prepare to face each other in the boxing ring. In a recent tweet, Diaz accused Paul of being on steroids and called for an extra four rounds to make it a 12-round fight.
Paul, who is known for his social media presence and willingness to engage in verbal battles with his opponents, fired back with a challenge of his own. He reminded Diaz that he had tested positive for steroids in the past and suggested that they make it a 15-round fight.
The trash-talking between the two fighters has been building for months, and fans are eagerly anticipating their clash on August 5th at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. While the fight is currently scheduled for eight rounds, Diaz's call for an extra four rounds indicates that he is confident in his ability to go the distance with Paul.
Paul was not mentioned in the Tweet by Diaz, but he certainly saw it since on Friday night, 'The Problem Child' responded.
The former UFC championship contenders' latest chaotic weekend in New Orleans gave the Jake Paul vs. Nate Diaz bout the appearance of being placed at risk, but Diaz's representative said the TUF 5 winner was recently given the all-clear to head out immediately following being granted bail.
“Bond has been granted and posted with the full permission from the court to resume travel which includes returning to Stockton today. We appreciate how we were treated by the New Orleans Police Department, the court, and their staff.”
Both fighters come from very different backgrounds, with Paul making his name as a YouTube personality turned boxer, and Diaz being a veteran of the UFC with a reputation for being a tough and gritty fighter. Despite their differences, they share a love for combat sports and a desire to prove themselves in the ring.
For Paul, this fight represents another opportunity to silence his critics and show that he is a legitimate boxer. He has been working hard in training camp and is determined to build another unbeaten streak in the ring since getting dropped by Tommy Fury in his last outing.
Diaz, on the other hand, is looking to prove that he is still a top-level fighter and can compete with the best in the world. He last competed against one of the greats in UFC, Tony Ferguson, which was his last fight under the UFC banner.
With both fighters talking a big game, the stage is set for an explosive showdown between Jake Paul and Nate Diaz. Whether it's an eight-round or 12-round fight, fans can expect to see two warriors leave it all in the ring on August 5th.
