The event on Nov. 28 headlined by an exhibition between retired former world champions Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. will not be your typical boxing card, and nothing says that more than the unique chief support bout.
YouTube personality Jake Paul will step into the ring for the third time (his second as professional boxer) to face basketball star Nate Robinson, a point guard formerly with the New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls, Denver Nuggets and Boston Celtics, among others.
Paul made his pro boxing debut in January, defeating fellow YouTuber "AnEsonGib" via TKO in just two minutes and 18 seconds in Miami. His brother Logan Paul, who also made his name as an online personality, famously fought KSI in two bouts as well.
Robinson, who is the NBA's first three-time slam dunk champion, believes he will be too much for Paul.
"I see his brother [Logan] on the Disney channel," he said in a recent interview. "Him on Disney doing so much stuff, man!
"I follow Jake’s YouTube, of course."You and your brother only fight YouTubers, you are gonna fight a real athlete for the first time."
