On Friday night, Biaggio secured his second victory for the PFL by defeating Isaiah Figueroa in under two minutes with a knockout. In response to Paul’s remarks, the grandson of Muhammad Ali advised him to battle an opponent who is of a similar size.

Pointing out that Nico fights in the 162lb category and he himself competes in the 155lb category. Biaggio stated that he has no issues with Jake Paul, but he should consider fighting someone who is of similar size and weight as him.

“I don’t know why he is trying to fight people smaller than him. He fought at cruiserweight in boxing so fight at the same weight in MMA. He’s a lot bigger than me, I don’t know why he’s trying to fight someone smaller than him. Fight someone your own size, I don’t understand it.”

Nico was present at Biaggio’s match in Las Vegas, but he did not seem enthusiastic about the prospect of facing Jake in a fight. When asked about Paul’s comments.

Nico responded by saying, “I didn’t know he said that, that’s amusing. I have been asked about this several times. But currently, I am not interested in that. I am focused on building a career in boxing, carrying forward my grandfather’s legacy, and creating my own path in the sport.”
