Paul defeated the former UFC fighter via a unanimous decision in a 10 round fight on Saturday evening.

The 26-year-old knocked the southpaw MMA fighter to the ground in the fifth round, with judges scoring the bout 97-92, 98-91, and 98-91 in his favour.

It was Diaz’s first appearance inside the boxing ring but he revealed after the bout that he wanted to return to the fighting championship, with Paul offering him a rematch inside the Octagon immediately after the fight. 

Paul came into the bout off the back of a split-decision loss to Fury in February, but extended his fight record to 7-1-0 with Saturday’s win.

But his long-standing rival, KSI, who had a win against Joe Fournier overturned earlier this year, slammed Paul’s performance against Diaz on Twitter.

The origins of their feud were ignited after the British boxer defeated Paul’s brother, Logan, in a bout back in 2019, with the pair having been linked with a fight for some time now. 

After the fight, the YouTuber wrote: ‘That Jake Paul performance was terrible. 

‘October 14 you get to watch a real fight and challenge’

He posted a promotional picture for his and Fury’s fight with the caption, but it is not the first time that he has called Paul out. 

After the American’s defeat to Fury earlier this year, KSI again claimed that he would ‘destroy both Jake Paul and Tommy Fury‘.

The pair also traded insults on the social media platform earlier this year, with KSI claiming that Paul was ‘ducking’ a fight with him, with the Ohio-born boxer proposing terms to fight him.

Paul wrote: ‘$30million to the winner, 0 to the loser if you want me to agree to your request of 180 pounds and rehydration clause.

‘Agree to that and I’m in. You just supposedly bet £10m so this should be easy to contract right?’

It came after KSI had wagered £10m against Joe Fournier for his bout back in May 2023, but the Brit replied saying: ‘Ain’t no way I’m doing this deal cos you still ain’t paid up for your last deal with Tommy Fury after he slapped you up.’

Paul then accused him of ‘not having the courage to put it all on the line in a contract and sign. Just like Tommy and his dad didn’t.’

The spat ended with KSI calling his adversary out, saying: ”It’s been 5 years. We’re both ready, just sign the contract and let’s fight you p****.’
