YouTube star Jake Paul won his second professional boxing match against Nate Robinson on the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. undercard in Los Angeles, California on Saturday (Nov. 28) night. The former NBA star hit the canvas three times inside two rounds, but the third knockdown was the last, leaving the basketball star face down in the ring.
The internet sensation was named the winner of the fight, while Robinson struggled to get back and was eventually taken out of the ring in a wheelchair. He took to Instagram after the fight to let his fans know that he was doing well, despite being knocked out.
“Thank you everyone for all of the well wishes, I’m OK. I appreciate @triller for the opportunity as well as everyone that has backed me during the fight,” he captioned a photo of himself.
“To my coaches, trainers, fans, and teammates, I appreciate all of the time and support you guys put in with me...it wasn’t the outcome that we wanted, but I’m thankful for the opportunity to fight on the biggest stage that there has been. #holdat.”
While the results of the fight were brutal, and some were concerned for Robinson’s well-being, boxing fans and social media users couldn’t help but make jokes about the situation. A lot of fans were not impressed with the former NBA player’s efforts, and especially with him losing to the YouTuber. Even though Paul has more boxing experience than Robinson, that didn’t stop the tweets and memes from rolling in.
