Jake Paul is getting his wish — the Problem Child will enter the boxing ring with ex-UFC superstar Nate Diaz later this year … TMZ Sports has learned.
We’re told the massive event is slated to go down on Aug. 5 in Dallas, TX … and will be put on by Jake’s Most Valuable Promotions and Nate’s Real Fight Inc. The bout will be a DAZN Pay-Per-View.
Jake just posted about the fight … saying, “August 5th we commemorate the funeral for Nathaniel Diaz as we send him in casket back to Dana [White].”
“Refreshments will be provided at the service. Black Tie Attire.”
As we previously reported, Jake has wanted to fight Nate for some time now … even challenging him to a boxing match AND an MMA fight after announcing his partnership with the Professional Fighters League.
