With the fight almost upon us, Teddy Atlas 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 by what method of victory does Atlas see this occurring?

Well, on a recent episode of his podcast, THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas, the legendary boxing coach had this to say on the Paul vs Diaz bout:

“Diaz, he can strike. He’s a tough guy. But again, he’s not hard to hit. The old timers would say in some of his fights he gets insulted if you miss him.

“He’s got a chin of granite, he’s got a hear of five lions, we know all that. But again, he’s now – as crazy as this sounds as he’s the guy with the history of fighting – he’s now in Jake Paul’s theatre.

“Jake Paul is the bigger guy, he gets the edge with that. He always gets the edge cause he’s the one putting these together.

“I have to go again with Jake Paul. Jake Paul has advanced enough, he’s developed enough. He throws a pretty good jab, he throws his punches pretty straight, especially his right hand with power.

I think he’s going to get an opportunity to control Diaz on the outside with his jab. You’re not going to mistake Diaz for an imitation of Floyd Mayweather. He ain’t going to be slipping and dipping, he’s going to be there.”
