Live stream: Jake Paul vs. Nate Diaz weigh-in results – Nate Diaz weighs heaviest ever in career

Jake Paul and Nate Diaz are set to hit the scales ahead of their boxing match this weekend. Will they make weight? Will Diaz show up?

By: Tim Bissell | 4 days ago

It’s time for Jake Paul and Nate Diaz to hit the scales ahead of their much-talked about fight. The pair are scheduled to meet in the ring on Saturday for Diaz’s pro boxing debut. Paul, of course, has had a handful of these fights before taking on mostly former MMA stars. Last time out he met his first opponent with a pro boxing record (Tommy Fury) and that resulted in a first loss for the Problem Child.

Diaz is new to pro boxing but not the fight game. The popular fighter has dozens of wins in the UFC and left that promotion off a win over Tony Ferguson last year.

These two are scheduled to fight for a maximum of 10 rounds at cruiserweight. That’s 200 lbs, a lot heavier than Diaz has ever fought and over 50 lbs heavier than the lowest weight he’s ever competed at.

It doesn’t seem likely that Diaz would miss weight for this. Feels like there’s more risk of him no-showing than coming in heavy.

Also hitting the scales will be Amanda Serrano and Heather Hardy. Serrano will be defending her undisputed featherweight titles so both her and Hardy will need to have their weight cuts on point.

All that action can be watched below during the official weigh-in stream. That’s scheduled to get underway at 2 p.m. ET on Friday.
