Nate Diaz still has a love for boxing and boxers. The fighter faced Jake Paul a while ago and suffered a devastating loss, however, he’s still unafraid. Now that Diaz has braved a venture into the ring, it’s only fair for a brilliant boxer to do the same for MMA.

Diaz has previously ventured into boxing in a match against Jake Paul. The prizefighter ended up defeating the famed UFC star in a much more disappointing turn of events. There’s also the famous Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather fight that everyone loves talking about.

And now, we have Francis Ngannou vs Tyson Fury. MMA fighters traveling to the ends of the earth to fight a boxing match is nothing new. However, a famed boxer coming to the Octagon? That would be a new one for everyone. Perhaps Diaz could restore himself to his former glory if the fight ever goes down.
