Jake Paul’s boxing record: stats, KOs, wins and loses
On Saturday, August 5th, Jake Paul will face Nate Diaz in a highly anticipated bout at the American Airlines Center, but what’s his record coming into the fight?
The Former YouTube star turned prize fighter will take on an icon of the UFC in the form of Nate Diaz this Saturday night in what promises to be an epic fight. The two have traded barbs constantly over the last few months, and we even saw a brawl break out between their security teams earlier this week at a press conference. This is all to say, these two don’t like each other. Nonetheless, it will all be settled when the bell rings in Dallas.
Who is Jake Paul?
Jake Paul began his road to fame on Vine, then appeared in the series Bizaardvark on the Disney Channel. He eventually built up a massive presence on social media with his daily vlog, with more than 20 million subscribers on YouTube, 22 million on Instagram, and 17 million on TikTok.
What is Jake Paul’s boxing record?
Jake Paul comes into his fight with Diaz sitting on a 6-1 record. Now while that may look decent on the surface, many would argue that it lacks credibility. Why is that? Simply because until his last fight, which happened to be his first loss, Paul had only faced fellow influencers like himself and a handful of former UFC fighters. Tommy Fury, brother of world heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, was the first time that Paul faced a professional boxer and though he lost by split decision, he lost.
Jake Paul vs AnEsonGib
Paul made his debut as a professional boxer by going up against British social media star AnEsonGib in 2020, and knocked out his fellow YouTuber in the very first round. This victory upped his confidence level and later that year, he signed up for another fight.
Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson
His next opponent was former NBA player Nate Robinson, with the match forming part of the undercard for the exhibition match between Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. Paul knocked out the NBA Slam Dunk champion in the second round.
Jake Paul vs Ben Askren
Paul then challenged mixed martial artist and Olympian Ben Askren over social media to be his next rival and the fight was set for April 2021. Paul scored another first-round knockout and established himself as a money-making fighter, claiming that the match’s PPV earnings reached $65 million.
Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley Part 1
The young influencer trash-talked his way into his fight against former UFC champion Tyron Woodley, and for the first time, the bout reached the full eight rounds. Paul eventually scored a split-decision victory in their August 2021 fight, with which he was unsatisfied as he wanted a knockout.
Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley Part 2
He got his wish in their rematch, which took place later that year. Paul was originally set to fight Tommy Fury, but since that didn’t push through, Woodley stepped in as his replacement. This time Paul knocked him out in the sixth round.
Jake Paul vs Anderson Silva
The only fight Paul had last year was against former UFC champion Anderson Silva. The fight went eight rounds, with Paul winning by unanimous decision.
Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury
Though the fight was originally set to occur on December 18th, 2021, two cancellations and a number of contractual disputes would see it delayed by more than a year as the two men finally stepped into the ring on February 26th, 2023. The eight-round cruiserweight fight took place in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia and resulted in a split decision win for Fury who was adjudged to have landed a higher percentage of punches, despite the fact that Paul scored a knockdown after Fury slipped while receiving moderate contact. Two judges scored the bout 76-73 in Fury’s favor, while a third gave it to Paul with 75-74.
