Eddie Hearn: Nate Diaz didn’t get stopped because Jake Paul didn’t have the ability

Many were impatiently waiting for the match between Jake Paul and Nate Diaz, who debuted on the boxing scene. In the end, Jake Paul won. After the match, there were many comments about both fighters. One of the first to comment was Promoter Eddie Hearn.

Hearn believes that Diaz does not have the qualities for boxing and that Paul could have decided the match much earlier if he had known. “It was awful,” Hearn said, as quoted by boxingscene. “Don’t get me wrong, the event was unbelievable.

You did a great job. Brilliant. But when you’re talking about.... you know MMA like the back of your hand. I know boxing like the back of my hand, and I’m watching that like [face in his hands], ‘This is so bad.’ The reason that Nate didn’t get stopped is that Jake didn’t have the ability.

He doesn’t know how to break a fighter down, cut off the ring, beat him up, and stop him. But I give my props to Nate: super tough. Super tough. But you’re talking about low, low level in terms of standard. "

Eddie Hearn on Jake Paul and Nate Diaz

Let it be clear that Nate Diaz has no boxing experience.

Despite everything, he did not give up and gave his best throughout the entire match. Many have only words of praise for him considering how tough an opponent he was. On the other hand, Paul won but also received a lot of criticism regarding this match.

“We have something in the U.K. called an area title, which is in a specific radius — it’s kind of like a state title. These guys wouldn’t win a state title, that’s the level they’re fighting at.

But listen, props to Nate. He definitely didn’t have ability, but what he did have was grit. But Jake just doesn’t have the ability or the experience to break someone down and stop them. And I was convinced he would”.
