Last night’s highly anticipated boxing bout between Jake Paul and Nate Diaz was nothing short of a bloody war throughout all ten rounds. The fight was scored 97-92, 98-91, and 98-91 by the judges, respectively, giving “The Problem Child” a victory by unanimous decision.
In the run-up to the fight, Paul had expressed his exasperation with Diaz’s lack of effort in advertising their upcoming clash in a public forum. On the other hand, it would appear that Diaz’s unique strategy was successful, as the bout recorded a massive live gate.
The event reportedly did better than five of the total six UFC events that have been held at the American Airlines Center, as stated by Nakisa Bidarian, the co-founder of Most Valuable Promotions and Jake Paul’s business partner.
Immediately after the incident, Bidarian and ‘The Problem Child’ made an appearance in front of the media. This is what Bidarian said:
“Just to let you know, our gate was $3.1 million, making this the second-highest grossing combat sports event in the annals of the American Airlines Center. This covers six different UFC pay-per-view events; the only event that did better than us was the one that took place after the epidemic, which was the most recent pay-per-view event held in this location. I cannot express how incredibly proud I am of Jake and Nate for everything that they have accomplished here tonight. I would want to express my gratitude to the American Airlines Center for their partnership, as well as to DAZN and Celcius.
After suffering his first loss in his professional boxing career earlier this year to Tommy Fury, Jake Paul, also known as “The Problem Child,” got back on track with a victory over Nate Diaz. This marked Jake Paul’s return to winning ways.
