Some spectators at the Jake Paul/Nate Diaz fight did not get enough action in the ring, so they decided to have an unsanctioned brawl of their own.
In the ring, Jake Paul, the social media influencer-turned-boxer, scored a unanimous decision win (97-92, 98-91, 98-91) over UFC veteran Nate Diaz on Saturday, improving his professional boxing record to 7-1.
Inside American Airlines Center, an argument between male fans got rowdy as punches would soon be thrown from every direction.
No word on if any of these people were tossed out or arrested.
As for the fight, it appeared it was nearly over in the first round, when Paul hurt Diaz and unleashed a series of blows over the next minute that put the fighter on his back foot. Diaz recovered enough to get through the round. However, most thought the match was over by round two.
Paul had a tough time putting Diaz down on the ground as he is known for taking a ton of punishment.
Diaz started figuring out his defense in the second round, but never landed a punch that seemed to hurt Paul throughout the entirety of the bout. The next few rounds were somewhat even before Diaz really seemed to do some damage in the eighth and ninth as the crowd started going crazy.
The momentum belonged to Diaz at the end but Paul’s control in the first several rounds made for an uncontroversial decision.
Paul suggested his next fight could be an MMA bout, having signed with the Professional Fighters League earlier this year. Paul also said he would be up for a rematch against Tommy Fury, who defeated him by a split decision in February.
