JAKE PAUL branded his haters 'virgins' as he received a chorus of boos after beating Nate Diaz.
The YouTuber turned boxer returned to the win column early on Sunday morning with a decision victory over the former UFC star.
Paul, 26, dropped Diaz in the fifth round with a neat check left hook but did little to impress those in attendance at the American Airlines Center.
The social media sensation was showered with boos during his post-fight interview and reacted angrily to the post-fight hate.
He roared "boo if you're a virgin" and cupped his right ear to further rile up the crowd.
Victory over Diaz saw Paul somewhat remove the bitter taste of defeat to Tommy Fury from his mouth.

"I had him hurt in the first round, he kept on coming.
"All credit to my team, my conditioning, going ten rounds in my eighth fight, it's unheard of.
