Fans hilariously react to Nate Robinson’s old tweet after being KO’d by Jake Paul
10 years ago, Nate Robinson tweeted that he could give boxing legends Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao a good three rounds if given the opportunity to train on a full-time basis. He didn’t even last two rounds against Jake Paul in their celebrity bout on Saturday night.
Here’s the original tweet:

Of course, once you put it out on the internet, it stays there forever. Fans dug up the decade-old tweet from the depths of Twitter and absolutely clowned the NBA journeyman following his devastating knockout loss.
Here are some of the hilarious responses fans made on Twitter at Nate Robinson’s expense:

It doesn’t matter when it happened, because people will always find the receipts. While people praised Nate Robinson for his valiant effort and actually going out there to fight, he became the subject of memes all over social media.
Robinson didn’t have much of a fighting chance right from the get-go. Paul, who had prior boxing experience before this celebrity match with Robinson, knocked down the 5-foot-9 guard in the first round and clearly looked dominant in the opening frame.
In Round 2, by around the two-minute mark, Paul scored another knockdown, sending Robinson into a daze. It took Robinson eight seconds before he could get back to his feet. The referee asked Robinson if he wanted to continue and the 36-year-old valiantly said yes. Unfortunately, this only meant more doom for the three-time NBA Slam Dunk Contest champ, as Paul eventually knocked him out cold a couple of seconds later.
The fight ended just a little over a minute into the second round. With how Saturday night went for him, it’s safe to say Nate Robinson wouldn’t even last a minute against Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao.
