Jake Paul is back in the ring this weekend with the YouTube star keen to maintain his momentum in boxing.

Former NBA player Nate Robinson will be his opponent this time on the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr.

Paul shone on his professional debut, proving his power with a dominant victory over fellow YouTube star AnEsonGib, with Robinson predictably engaging in trash talk.

Robinson, 36, has revealed how boxing was part of his youth as much as basketball, where he became a star in the NBA for multiple teams, including New York Knicks, Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls.

“Hit the bag, get the gloves, get after each other so we could prepare each other for situations if we were ever in a fight we know what it feels like. Just to be able to protect ourselves, to know the fundamentals,” Robinson told Boxing Scene.
