Nate Robinson was a good basketball player and an excellent athlete. However, he wasn’t a proper boxer and a few months of training didn’t change this. Paul fought Robinson after his victory over a fellow YouTuber, AnEnsonGib. He starched the former Knicks star in the second round of their bout.
This attracted a lot of attention because of their profiles. There was also some condemnation because of Robinson’s head trauma. Critics said that people shouldn’t just jump into boxing because it isn’t safe. It also gave a false representation of Paul’s talents because he wasn’t fighting a decent opponent (via Bleacher Report).
