Jake Paul To Fight Former NBA Star Nate Robinson
Social icon Jake Paul will fight former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard to legendary former Undisputed Heavyweight World Champion and entrepreneur Mike Tyson and four-division World Champion Roy Jones Jr. on September 12, 2020 at 9pm ET.
A three-hour live event airing globally, the Paul vs. Robinson fight is set for 6 rounds and will be one of multiple exhilarating fights taking place during the broadcast leading up to the Tyson vs. Jones Jr. faceoff. This program will also include other significant undercard matches as well as iconic musical performances to be announced in the coming weeks.
This match is Robinson's professional boxing debut, challenging Paul, who is undefeated as a professional. Details of this unprecedented faceoff will be shown in a corresponding documentary airing exclusively on Triller, that will feature behind the scenes footage and lead up training to the fight in five 10-minute episodes.
Social icon, musical artist and undefeated boxer Jake Paul began his professional boxing debut in 2019 against fellow personality AnEsonGib, resulting in a victory for Paul via technical knockout at 2:18 in the first round. The fight garnered more attention than the main event, and Paul has been credited for bringing hundreds of thousands of new boxing fans to the sport via his social media platforms. Previously Paul fought Deji as the co-main event to Logan Paul and KSI in 2018. Paul won the fight after five rounds as Deji's corner called the fight on his behalf.
The fight between Tyson and Jones Jr., titled "FRONTLINE BATTLE," is the first event of a series produced under Mike Tyson's Legends Only League, a sports venture owned by Tyson and Eros Innovations.
