With the fight almost upon us, Carl Froch 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 insists if it was in an octagon it would be the other way around.

In a recent video on his YouTube channel, Froch On Fighting, the former world champion boxer and British boxing hero had this to say on how he sees the Jake Paul vs Nate Diaz fight playing out:

“I’m unsure if I’ll be watching, I’ll probably watch the replay, that’s no slant on them but I can’t watch that, I’m not really too interested in watching these crossover YouTube fights.

“I think that Jake Paul is more of an established boxer, I don’t want to say that Jake Paul is a pro boxer because he’s not, I don’t think he ever will be, but he is closer than any of these crossover boxers are to becoming a pro boxer.

“I would expect Jake Paul to beat Nate Diaz in the boxing ring. On the street or in the cage, Jake Paul hasn’t got a chance, Nate Diaz would absolutely slaughter him, but I still think that Diaz has got a bit of boxing ability, he can still move around and throw punches.

“So, it’s an interesting one, but I’ve got to make Jake Paul the favourite because I just think that a decent boxer beats a top MMA fighter, in a boxing ring.”
