Jake Paul knocks out Nate Robinson in the second round with a viscious right hand

The three-time NBA Slam Dunk Champion looked unprepared for the bout, and was knocked out cold by the Youtube star.

Content creator Jake Paul knocked out former NBA star Nate Robinson in the second round of their fight on the undercard of the bout between Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. on Saturday night in Los Angeles on the Legends Only League card.

Robinson charged forward whenever he could, but showed no boxing skill or any desire to defend from distance with a guard. Paul knocked Robinson down in Round 1, and Robinson was holding the back of his head for so long he couldn’t even touch his gloves together for the referee.

Robinson in Round 2 walked into a right hand and went down in a heap, but got back and seemed a little disinterested. But just several seconds after the ref restarted the fight, he was knocked out cold.

It was good to see Robinson get up to his stool after that punch, because it looked pretty scary, but he was on his stool and lucid as the ring announcer read the decision.

After the bout, Paul said to ringside interviewer Jim Gray the following: “Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock both of them out.” Ok, Jake. Settle down.

But with the win, Jake “The Problem Child” Paul does move to 2-0 as a professional boxer. And Nate Robinson, who played college football for the Washington Huskies and tried out for the Seattle Seahawks before a 11-year NBA career, might want to put a bit more focus in technique before getting back in the ring again.
