YouTube star Jake Paul knocked out former NBA player Nate Robinson Saturday night, in an undercard fight ahead of the main event that features 54-year-old Mike Tyson vs 51-year-old Roy Jones Jr.
Paul — 1-0 boxing record — won the fight quickly and decisively by knocking out Robinson cold in the second round. The 23-year-old knocked down the three-time NBA Slam Dunk Champion in the first round, before a brutal knockout shot in the second round.

Robinson, 36, was able to get up from that, thankfully. It was his debut in the ring, so the result wasn’t exactly shocking.
Paul wasn’t lacking for confidence after the victory, saying he would like to fight Conor McGregor and Dillon Danis- and that he would knock out McGregor.
Jake Paul being very gracious in victory. No trash talk towards to Robinson.
Paul says he is interested in “Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis” next, says he’d knock both out.
