(Video) KSI diss? KSI shares video of Nate Diaz hitting the pads ahead of Jake Paul boxing bout

YouTuber-turned-boxer KSI has recently shared old sparring footage of Nate Diaz ahead of the latter’s first professional boxing match.

Last week, it was announced that former UFC welterweight Nate Diaz would compete against Jake Paul on August 5. The eight-round bout will take place at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. This event is a collaboration between Paul’s Most Valuable Promotions and Diaz’s new company.

This will be the first professional boxing match of Diaz’s career. On the other hand, Jake Paul is looking to bounce back after his loss to Tommy Fury in February.

Paul said, “. Now, the world thinks I am vulnerable, when all I am is more focused than ever.”

KSI recently posted a video showcasing Diaz’s sparring skills. Fans have shared mixed reactions to the footage. Some of the comments are as follows.


One user stated: “His strikes always looked lazy, but the punches are accurate and his opponents heads get snapped back when he lands. Add the fact that he throws with volume / has crazy cardio / and high lvl jujitsu makes him a monster. Shouts out his coach Richard Perez.”

A second fan wrote: “This guy is so strange. His striking looks not even that good but all of his opponents struggling with him.”

A third user commented: “t’s the accuracy of the shots, mannnn…. people sleep on his striking and his accuracy.”

Also, a fourth user added: “I think the fact that he’s a right handed southpaw will do him in in an actual boxing match. It may work for mma/grappling but boxing is completely different. He’ll be eating right hands all day and not be able to counter with his power hand.”

Additionally, WBC super lightweight champion Regis Prograis had a chance to spar with Diaz in 2020.

Prograis said: “Nate was in here, warming up and stuff, and his sparring partner didn’t come. And it was like, ‘S***! Do you wanna spar?’ I was like, ‘Hell yeah!’ I was bloated, I was slow, but I still had the power, and it was pay-per-view TV. I’ve still got the video and one day I’ll put it out – we ran it, for sure.”
