With the fight almost upon us, Carl Frampton has weighed-in with his prediction on how he sees the Paul vs Diaz fight playing out. He is backing the Ohio man to win the fight, but doesn’t think it will be totally one sided in Paul’s favor.

Well, in a recent interview with boxing media outlet Seconds Out, the former two-weight world champion and fighting pride of Northern Ireland had this to say on the Paul vs Diaz bout:

“The Jake Paul vs Nate Diaz fight actually interests me. I actually like Jake Paul – he’s grown on me a lot.

“I really like Nate Diaz, I think he’s a bit of a mad man. I think he [Diaz] can box a little bit, but in saying that, that’s the narrative isn’t it? But then you look at him on the pads and it looks like he can’t box.

“He has an unorthodox style and is certainly very tough. It interests me a bit. Two years ago I wouldn’t have watched the fight, but I will be watching this one.

“I was siding with Nate Diaz before I saw clips of him on the pads. I’ve changed my opinion and now I think Jake Paul will win.”
