YouTuber and influencer, Jake Paul is set to return to the boxing ring on the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. undercard against Nate Robinson and video has been leaked of him knocking out his sparring partners.
Paul, who many criticized for getting YouTubers into boxing, is now taking on a former NBA player in the co-main event. Yet, there is no question he is taking the sport seriously and ahead of his fight, a video got leaked of him knocking out, battering, and blooding his parking partners.
Jake Paul is currently 1-0 as a professional boxer as he TKO’d fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib in the first round back in January. He also TKO’d YouTuber Deji on the undercard of the first Logan Paul vs. KSI fight.
Now, against Robinson, Paul expects to do the same and that is knock out Robinson in the first just as he did to AnEsonGib.
During the press conference for the fight, Robinson brought up the fact he is the first athlete Jake Paul has fought. That is no doubt true, but this will be Robinson’s first boxing fight.
“You are the ones who been saying Jake’s never fought a real athlete.” Jake Paul said (via EssentiallySports).
“Am I lying? Have you? You haven’t. No, you haven’t. You and your brother only fight YouTubers, you are gonna fight a real athlete for the first time,” Nate said.
“I fight nobody, I will fight you, and I will beat your a**.” After multiple interruptions from Paul, Robinson ended the exchange by adding, “bring that same energy on November 28.”
This is no doubt a very intriguing bout and there is no question the loser will hear all the trash-talk post-fight But, the way Paul is sparring, he does look good and has a ton of power.
Who do you think will win, Jake Paul or Nate Robinson?
