Nate Diaz, the former UFC fighter, has called for a dramatic rule change in his proposed boxing match with controversial YouTuber turned boxer, Jake Paul.
Diaz took to social media to express his frustration with the current state of boxing, stating that the sport has become too “watered down” and “boring.” He argued that the rules of boxing, including the use of gloves and limited rounds, have stifled the excitement and unpredictability of the sport.
In his Instagram post, Diaz proposed a new set of rules for his fight with Paul, including the removal of gloves and an unlimited number of rounds. Diaz believes that these changes would not only make the fight more entertaining for the fans, but would also provide a more authentic test of the fighters’ skills and endurance.
While some fans have expressed support for Diaz’s proposed rule changes, others have criticized the idea as reckless and potentially dangerous. Boxing has strict rules and regulations in place for the safety of the fighters, and removing gloves and extending the number of rounds could pose serious risks to their health.
Despite the controversy surrounding his proposal, Diaz remains adamant that these changes are necessary to revive the excitement and authenticity of the sport. As the negotiations for the Diaz-Paul fight continue, it remains to be seen whether Diaz’s demands for a rule change will be taken seriously.
