It seems like a trend for down-and-out YouTubers to take a career change and turn to prizefighting. Some fans say that these fights are rigged, while others claim that the fights are authentic. But everyone agrees that these fights are full of drama. In a recent pre-match faceoff between Jake Paul and Nate Diaz, things got very heated.
This Thursday saw one of the spiciest dramas in the boxing world when Former YouTuber Jake Paul and longtime UFC star Nate Diaz met for the iconic face-off. However, tension was already in the air, and things soon turned ugly between the Paul and Diaz camps. Paul and Diaz were mostly on the outer circle of the skirmish; we saw the security guards and team members from both camps duking it out.
Sources suggest that things have not been good between the two camps for almost a year now. And this skirmish was a result of that bad blood. According to Diaz’s team, the fight was initiated by a member of Diaz’s team. However, Paul took to Twitter and said, “Nate’s team has emailed my team trying to claim assault after his team swung first… Apparently the guy who swung first is at the hospital getting stitches. Hilarious these fake gangsters acting like this!”
This incident has only upped the hype factor for the match, as fans would swarm to see how the difference between the two fighters would be settled and who is going to prove that he is the real deal. As for now, it is mostly a Twitter fest, where teams are calling out each other and using slander to dominate. All this seems fun and games, but a question is begged to be asked about the authenticity and integrity of boxing as a sport. Keep following our page for more such sports-related content.
