Nate Robinson became a living meme when Jake Paul laid him out in their boxing match, but he got paid for it.

The ex NBA baller made $2 million for that fight against Jake Paul in 2020. There is a chance that he could be coming back for round two according to ESPN’s Stephen A Smith.

During a recent show, Smith read a text message from a trusted source connected to Robinson’s camp. This text message indicated that he’s trying to get a rematch with Jake Paul.

“Nate walked out the arena [on Sept. 12 and] realized he was not trained well. [He] apologized for not listening and collected a little over $2 million for that fiasco. He’s fine.”


“They are trying to get him to fight in a rematch, if you can believe that. Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather wants to train him, if he agrees. Crazy but true.”

The source apparently advised Nate to not go through with it, but “if he does, it needs to be for more money.” Robinson also needs to train a bit more with actual boxers around him. Floyd “Money” Mayweather would be a great trainer to have on hand.

Jake Paul might not want to fight Nate Robinson again after knocking out Ben Askren. Paul now has a long line of MMA fighters ready to step up and take a fight more seriously than Askren, who was apparently just in it for the payday.
