Jake Paul is happy to accept Nate Diaz’s request for 10 rounds.
Paul revealed on social media on Tuesday that Diaz had asked for the fight to be changed from an 8 round fight to a 10 round fight before their bout on August 5 in Dallas. Paul appreciated the requirement because it will be the first time in his boxing career that he will be fighting over 10 rounds.
“Nate Diaz wants 10 rounds,” Paul wrote on Twitter. “I guess he has good cardio. OK Nathan, 10 rounds it is.”
Originally, the bout was supposed to last eight rounds at 185 pounds, with 10-ounce gloves for each fighter. Other than that, the fight is anticipated to go as normal.
A formal request to change the fight to 10 rounds has been made, according to Diaz’s agent Zach Rosenfield, and the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation must still approve the change before it can take effect.

Naturally, Diaz is widely renowned for his exceptional conditioning, where he tends to gain stronger as his fights progress, and he frequently used that weapon to batter his opponents in the later rounds.
In spite of losing the majority of the fight up until that point, Diaz nearly pulled off a late finish in the fifth and final round of a 25-minute contest with future UFC welterweight champion Leon Edwards in 2021.
In his rematch with Conor McGregor in 2016, Diaz further demonstrated his toughness and tenacity by enduring an early bombardment from the Irish superstar but continuing to fight until the bell rang.
When Diaz takes on Paul in his professional boxing debut in August, it appears that he wants to rely once more on his conditioning and toughness.
The fight will take place at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, and the pay-per-view event will be broadcast worldwide on DAZN.
