Jake Paul focusing on Mike Tyson undercard fight against Nate Robinson after FBI raid
Multiple news outlets reported that the FBI recently raided the mansion of YouTube star Jake Paul. This comes amidst Paul’s training for his upcoming boxing match with former NBA player Nate Robinson in the undercard event of the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. fight.
Jake Paul Raided House
According to TMZ Sports, Jake Paul is putting his focus on the fight to distract himself from the ongoing investigation. The FBI reportedly confiscated several firearms during the raid, which came as a result of a previous arrest due to Paul’s alleged involvement in criminal activity in a mall during the George Floyd protests back in May.
The fight had originally been scheduled for Sept. 12. However, it will now take place on Nov. 28, which is Thanksgiving weekend. The move will reportedly help the event cater to a larger audience.
The bout will still remain in a closed setting due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. It will take place at Dignity Health Sports Park in California.
The combatants have also engaged in a heated war of words. Nate Robinson and Jake Paul spoke in a video call and talked a ton of trash against each other. This has certainly helped build up some hype, considering the two are relatively inexperienced fighters.
Jake Paul Boxing
Paul made his professional boxing debut earlier this year. He defeated fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib via TKO. Meanwhile, the 11-year NBA veteran has never fought professionally. The 5-foot-9 Robinson may have his work cut out for him, considering he is also at a height disadvantage against the 6-foot-1 Jake Paul.
Nonetheless, Nate Robinson is as tough as they come. Let’s just see how the three-time Slam Dunk Champ will fare inside a boxing ring against Paul. At the very least, it should be pretty entertaining to watch these two go at it in the ring.
