Jake Paul will try to grab the second win of his boxing career when he enters the ring against NBA veteran Nate Robinson on November 28. Although Tyson vs Jones is the most lucrative fight of the night, Paul and Robinson have also cemented their bout as a fan-attraction.
Being a basketball icon for so many years, Nate Robinson has always claimed to be a boxing fan. Now that he is finally making his debut, he will have to face a young Jake Paul inside the ring.
That said, ‘The Problem Child’ has the odds in his favor by a huge margin. Already having a win via TKO against Ali Eson Gib, Jake Paul is clearly the favorite over the 36-year-old Robinson. However, boxing is an unpredictable sport where the odds have been shattered several times in the past. Thus, this is still an exciting fight, with both the contenders having a fair chance of winning.
In an interaction with TMZ, Robinson has said, “I mean you go hard or you go home, I mean its something like you saying. I didn’t lace my shoes up and win against guys like Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson. You know some of the best of the best and to be able to fight on a Mike Tyson undercard. You don’t think I am gonna be ready and prepared?”
In response, Jake Paul said, “I don’t give a f*** what you did. You are not ready, you haven’t even sparred yet. You don’t even know what it’s like to spar buddy.”
Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson: Preview
