Jake Paul remains optimistic that a rematch with Nate Diaz will happen later down the line. 

The pair faced each other in the boxing ring on August 5th, 2023, as Paul beat Diaz via a unanimous decision. Despite Diaz failing to trouble the ‘Problem Child,’ he did manage to go the distance on his boxing debut.

In the aftermath, Paul promised to face Diaz in an MMA rematch by making a $10 million offer. That failed to result in a fight happening as Diaz was keen on taking a boxing rematch.

Thereafter, Paul announced his fight with Andre August on December 15th, 2023. And yet, the boxer was optimistic that he would fight Diaz again.

“I think there was a point where there was genuine interest from his team in making it happen. Then there was just radio silence after that, and he’s just calling out the PFL. All this stuff it’s like, okay bro, you either want to make this happen or not. He’s saying ‘Oh we’ll do it under Real Fight Inc’, that’s not a real thing by the way…So, he’s just hiding behind this notion that he doesn’t want to fight in the PFL. But look man, eventually he’s going to need, or want the money. I’m not writing it off,” Paul stated 

In addition, Paul also addressed the recent statement by his brother, Logan Paul, who confirmed that he had retired from boxing.

The news came after his fight with Dillon Danis, which he won following the latter’s disqualification for attempting two MMA moves. The news did take some by surprise since Paul has only had two official fights against KSI and Danis.

Meanwhile, that was accompanied by an exhibition with Floyd Mayweather Jr. The focus, however, appeared to be on his WWE ventures moving forward.

“I think I’m retired from boxing. I’ve done enough going fully undefeated at 25-0. I’m going to be a wrestler now. No more money in boxing, every company is going broke. Full-time wrestler. Beat Rey Mysterio. Fair and square for the US Championship. It feels great. It was a dominant performance. Some frog splashes, some punches, it feels good,” Paul stated

But for Jake, the boxer was hopeful that this was not the end of his brother’s boxing career. 

“I don’t believe that. I don’t know when he’ll fight, but he’s just got so much fight in him. He’s going into his athletic prime. I think he’s going to fight again, for sure,” Paul

The Paul brothers have managed to leave a mark in combat sports in their own right. Both have managed to bring in a new audience to the sport.

But whether it is Logan’s last boxing fight or not, the mantle will no doubt be carried by Jake. The latter has expressed his desire to become a world champion at some point in the future.

And that will be the focus moving forward regardless of Logan’s decisions moving forward. ‘Find all the latest boxing news and MMA breaking updates on boxingnews.com
