Former NBA player Nate Robinson scheduled to box YouTube star Jake Paul
Nate Robinson was once challenged during an interview in Israel by a shirtless biker to a game of one-on-one. As trash talk escalated, Robinson laughed big, suddenly looked stern and said, “I’ll bust his ass.”
The former NBA player found a fight.
With YouTube star Jake Paul.
The boxing match between Robinson (a once-great athlete who’s now 36) and Paul is scheduled to precede Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. on Sept. 12.
