An amateur boxer attempted to make a name for himself by testing Nate Diaz’s patience during the press conference with Jake Paul, which Drake labeled weak. The person, who is reportedly a member of Paul’s team, asked Diaz if he thinks he could beat his brother, Nick, in the ring. “Nate, I’m actually a boxer myself, and I’ve been trying to get into this undercard,” he said. “I’m just wondering if you think I could fight your brother Nick. If he’s anything like you, I think I’d beat his f—ng ass.”
Although officials tried to intervene, Nate Diaz was baffled by the question. Of course, he’s also known to be a hothead at times but he didn’t show it in this instance, largely because the individual was outnumbered. “Brother, you’re just gonna walk around the street or some shit? You know, all my homeboys see you right now? That was stupid, huh?” Diaz asked the individual, who later identified himself as Derek from Betr Media. “Yeah I’m pretty nervous right now,” he added. “Yeah, that was stupid… Hey, Derek from Betr Media. Stupid ass motherf—r. The f—k? You deserve your ass whooped,” Diaz concluded.
Drake Reacts To Heated Paul Vs. Diaz Press Conference
At this point, Jake Paul emerged to apologize to Nate for the hiccup, admitting that Derek was a member of his team. “He works for my company. I’ll handle that later, I’ll fire him later. I’m sorry about that, Nate,” Paul said. “Derek, shut up.” Overall, it was a cringeworthy moment that likely led to Derek from Betr Media’s bout with unemployment this morning. “I’m sorry,” Derek said timidly afterward.
To rub salt in the wound, the biggest recording artist in the world further heckled Derek. Drake took to Instagram shortly after the Jake Paul vs. Nate Diaz presser and reacted to the back-and-forth. “Man why would u play with a real g [laughing emoji]. this is a weak generation,” he wrote. The Paul vs Diaz fight takes place on August 8th at the American Airlines Center. It’s bound to be a historical evening as it marks Diaz first fight as a boxer.
