Former NBA star Nate Robinson will make his professional boxing debut tomorrow night against YouTube star Jake Paul in a light heavyweight bout on the Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. undercard.
Jake Paul was the 2nd highest paid You Tuber in the world in 2018, he cleared 21.5 million.
Jake Paul is currently 1-0 as a professional boxer with his victory over UK boxer AnEsonGib. Boxing legend Shane Mosley trained Paul for his fight against AnEsonGib.
After Paul defeated AnEsonGib, things got a little heated with a boxer name KSI, who is friends with AnEsonGib. KSI was the next opponent Paul had in his sights.
Watch the post fight video below, the Paul and KSI face-off starts at the 4:10 minute marker :
Paul, apparently, put that KSI beef on the back burner to fight former NBA star Nate Robinson.
Nate Robinson is a former NBA star who was known for his unbelievable leaping ability. At 5’9″ Nate is the only NBA player to win the dunk contest three times (2006, 2009, 2010).
He was drafted by the New York Knicks in 2005, and he went on to play with seven other NBA teams.
Saturday night will be Nate’s professional boxing debut, and he has trained hard to make his debut memorable.
Nate Robinson is in great shape, and he appears to be extremely focused on the task at hand.

This fight gives me “MTV Celebrity Death Match” vibes.
I believe the smart money is on Nate Robinson to win this fight.
Who do you think will win the Paul vs. Robinson fight?
