Who would’ve guessed on a Mike Tyson card that YouTuber Jake Paul would have the KO of the night? In the latest example why boxing isn’t a “play” sport, former NBA star Nate Robinson became a meme after suffering three knockdowns in route to a second-round KO on the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones co-main event.

Whatever training period Robinson had for this fight, it wasn’t long enough. A few seconds in showed he had no concept of a proper boxing stance nor footwork. He leaped forward with his chin up in air, signaling a bad KO was on deck.

Paul is by no means a seasoned pro, but he has been training for over two years. Once he got the timing down for Robinson’s awkward rushes, it became slaughter with the former Slam Dunk Champion getting buzzed with every clean overhand right counter. The first came 50 seconds into round one, which planted Robinson face first. The same sequence repeated itself again at the 1:51 mark of round two.

A merciful ref would’ve did Robinson a favor and called it. But this was an exhibition with an emphasis on entertainment, so Robinson was allowed to barrel forward into one more overhand right that left him motionless face first on the canvas.

I hope that $600k was worth it, Nate.
