Logan Paul feels that Nate Diaz is running away from him. The YouTube star says a boxing match with Nate Diaz seemed to be on the goal line, but now things may have changed.
Ahead of his WrestleMania 39 match with Seth Rollins this weekend, Paul revealed in an interview that a big money fight is on the table with the former UFC fighter, and according to Paul, Diaz’s side has backed off a bit. After teasing several names, Paul ended up naming the Stockton native as his potential foe.
“I think he’s running. This guy, I think he’s ducking. We have the sweetest deal for him and he knows the type of numbers I bring in. I’m not a quarter of a million [pay-per-view buys] type of fighter, you’re going to get 750,000 [to a] million buys, and I’m an 0-1 YouTuber. Seems like an easy fight on paper. It’s Nate Diaz,” he said in a recent interview (h/t MMA Fighting).
Paul has a lot going on these days and has been wanting to return to the boxing ring for some time after a draw with Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout over two years ago in February 2021.
The 27-year-old thinks the door isn't totally closed because his side has upped the ante in terms of salary, but he's not sure why the Diaz camp hasn't signed on the dotted line yet.
“I don’t even care anymore. I thought I had something locked in, but apparently, he said the fight was off. Like, why? Why? So he could fight someone else? For what purpose? To get less buys, and maybe an easier fight? I don’t get it,” he added.
