Nate Diaz didn't hesitate when predicting the winner of Mike Tyson vs Jake Paul

Nate Diaz didn't hesitate when predicting the winner of Mike Tyson vs Jake Paul

Nate Diaz has had his say.

Former UFC star Nate Diaz didn't hesitate when predicting the winner of the upcoming boxing fight between Mike Tyson and Jake Paul.

Tyson vs Paul will take place from Arlington, Texas on July 20, with reports claiming that the organisers will aim for the bout to be granted professional status.

The fight will be Tyson's first since stepping into the ring to take on longtime rival Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition match in November 2020, with his previous bout being his final professional outing against Kevin McBride in 2005.

Paul, meanwhile, will enter the fight off the back of knocking out professional boxer Ryan Bourland in the first round of their March 2 bout.

A number of current and former UFC stars have been asked for their views on the fight, including Conor McGregor.

Take a look at what the Irishman said below.

Diaz, meanwhile, has experience of facing 'The Problem Child' inside the squared circle, but it wasn't to be a happy occasion for the 37-year-old.

He took on Paul in what was his first professional boxing match in August 2023, but lost via unanimous decision after 10 rounds.

But despite that defeat, Diaz, who is currently a free agent after leaving UFC, was quick to give his answer when asked whether Tyson or Paul would prevail in their match.

After initially shouting 'I don't give a f**k', he told InsideFighting that he thinks it will be Tyson that will have his arm raised at the end of the bout.

You can watch the full exchange below.

Tyson vs Paul will be streamed live on Netflix, with the full event free for existing subscribers to the platform.

In a press release that accompanied the announcement of the fight, Paul's manager Nakisa Bidarian stated: "Jake Paul vs Mike Tyson is a once-in-a-lifetime dream matchup and we hope it will be the most-watched boxing event in modern boxing history.

"Partnering with Netflix presents an unparalleled opportunity to bring Jake Paul vs Mike Tyson to the world on an unprecedented scale and we look forward to delivering this incredible clash of two of sport's biggest names."
