YouTuber superstar Jake Paul is returning for this third career boxing match, and his second as a professional boxer as he prepares to take on former NBA star Nate Robinson.
Paul and Robinson will be featured on the undercard for Mike Tyson’s return fight against Roy Jones Jr.
Paul has experience boxing, debuting in 2018 as the undercard fight to Logan Paul and KSI’s initial bout. In that card, the younger Paul took on KSI’s brother, Deji, in an amateur boxing match and won. In 2019, Paul turned professional following in Logan’s footsteps and fought fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib. Paul easily won that fight with a first-round TKO.
Now Paul is returning to the ring for his second professional fight — against Robinson. Robinson made a name for himself in the NBA as he was featured on a number of teams. He was a first-round draft pick in 2005 and had a long career.
Robinson gained notoriety due to his short 5-foot-9 frame. But what he lacked in height, he made up for in athleticism. Robinson became the NBA’s first three-time slam dunk champion.
It seems like an odd matchup on paper, and that’s because, well, it is. But Paul and Robinson have shown in interviews leading up to this fight that they’re taking the sport of boxing seriously, and hope to put on a good show.
