Former NBA all-star Gilbert Arenas calls for Jake Paul to run it back with Nate Robinson


Former NBA all-star Gilbert Arenas called for Jake Paul to run back the Nate Robinson fight after he scored a nasty KO this past weekend.

Paul knocked out Robinson in absolutely devastating fashion in the co-main event of this past Saturday’s boxing match between legends Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. Robinson, a former NBA dunk champion, looked completely out of place in the fight. Although he says he trained hard, once the bell rung it was clear that Robinson was completely out of his element. Paul scored two knockdowns before scoring the KO blow, which led to a number of NBA playing reacting to the finish on social media.

One of those players in Arenas, a former all-star guard for the Washington Wizards of the NBA during the mid-2000s. Arenas played in the NBA between 2001 and 2012, starring for the Wizards, Golden State Warriors, Orlando Magic, and Memphis Grizzlies before his career ended. Following the fight against Paul, Arenas took to social media to send a message of support to Robinson. He credited his former NBA rival for having the courage to step into the ring and told Paul to give him a rematch.

Since Robinson was brutally knocked out by Paul, he figures to reconsider making a run in boxing after seeing how dangerous the sport can be if you aren’t ready for it. But if was up to Arenas, Robinson would get back in the gym and fight Paul again.

Do you agree with Gilbert Arenas that Jake Paul vs. Nate Robinson should be run back?
