Jake Paul warned against taking on 'real fighter' Nate Diaz as UFC star's team-mate says he would would win 'hands down'

JAKE PAUL is warned by Nate Diaz’s training partner to face the ‘most realistic fighter ever’.

Diaz – and Jorge Masvidal – was ousted by Paul after he recently knocked out former UFC champion Tyrone Woodley in their rematch.

On the undercard, Chris Avila defeated the YouTuber’s former sparring partner Anthony Taylor.

And Avila, a longtime teammate of Diaz’s at his home in Stockton, gave the green light for his mentor to box Paul.

He told mmfighting: “I’m ready to watch that fight. But when you fight Nate Diaz, you get the realest fighter out there ever.

“So these guys are sitting here and calling out his name and he’s finally going to be in the boxing ring and I’m excited to see him.

“Who he’s going to box is his choice. He’s going to make a stamp and a statement in boxing, easy.”

Paul, 24, was set to face Fury, 22, this month until the former British reality TV star passed out from a broken rib and a chest infection.

Woodley, 39, signed on as a late replacement, but was ruled out in a rematch just three months after losing on points.

He is now joined by YouTuber ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37, on Paul’s KO list.

But Avila, 28, insists that Diaz, 36, will not face the same fate as former UFC duo Askren and Woodley.

He added: “Jake Paul’s team is zero. We are already one.

“That last fight was Paul-Diaz, team versus team, Jake Paul made him. They’re already one down.

“So if he wants to get in the ring with Nate or me, either of us will be fine. I know this is a fight I can win.

“I know this is a fight Nate will win, hands down. Easy money.”
