Anderson Silva: Nate Diaz will beat Jake Paul

UFC icon Anderson Silva does not think that Jake Paul will be successful in defeating Nate Diaz in their forthcoming boxing bout.

Silva lost to Paul via unanimous decision in their match in October of last year. After that, the former YouTuber-turned-boxer suffered his first defeat at the hands of Love Island star Tommy Fury.

Anderson Silva has now voiced his opinion on the upcoming boxing match between Paul and Diaz in Dallas on August 5. He stated that Diaz will win, despite his lack of experience in the boxing ring.

Silva stated in an interview: “Jake’s training a lot. People need to respect everything he’s doing, because it’s very professional and focused. It’s very hard to say who wins, because both are good

“Nate is more experienced, he has good boxing and good cardio. I respect both.”

“Jake has a good coach, he’s very smart. ”

” it’s about timing and both have good timing. Jake has now some good experience in boxing and is learning every day, but Nate is a beast! ”

“I think he has more experience and is the favorite.”

On the other hand, Paul has expressed his confidence in winning the match. He said that he can’t afford to lose another bout after his defeat to Fury. Paul also mentioned that this match has personal significance to him, as he is “filled with vengeance” and wants to show his fans the changes he’s made in his life.

Paul said in a video on his YouTube channel: “I am filled with vengeance I can’t lose two in a row so this means everything to me. I don’t want to lose to a YouTuber and I think this is going to be a fight for the ages. I think this could be again one of the biggest pay-per-views in the last couple of years.”

“I am ready to show you guys the changes I have made in my own life. I want to show you guys how to come back from a loss and to beat somebody’s a**. With that said, if I lose again it will be back to everyday bro, no I am joking. But I am not going to lose but if I do I will be a YouTuber forever.”
