Jake Paul Favored Over Nate Robinson In Boxing Match

  • Jake Paul is a -160 odds favorite to beat Nate Robinson (+130) in their boxing match on the Tyson-Jones Jr undercard.
  • This will be Nate Robinson’s first career boxing match.
  • The match will be held on September 12 with no official start time for the fight set yet.

LAS VEGASThe Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. fight is set to be one of the biggest boxing matches of 2020.

Tyson hasn’t fought inside the ring in 15 years while Jones Jr. retired in February 2018 both former heavyweight champions will battle it out in an exhibition eight-round bout on September 12. While the old guys are going to be the main calling card, the undercard fight between former NBA guard Nate Robinson and YouTuber Jake Paul.

Both Robinson and Paul aren’t the most experienced boxers as Robinson is making his boxing debut while Jake Paul won his first career boxing match via TKO in January.

Paul has the size advantage since he’s 6-foot 1 inch, but Nate Robinson is no stranger to slaying giants as the 5 '9 guard won three NBA Slam Dunk Contests in his 11 years in the NBA.

Two inexperienced fighters going at it in the ring could either be an eyesore or some very compelling content. Either way, this fight should provide boxing bettors with a unique betting opportunity as Robinson or Paul could pull out the victory since this fight is essentially a coin toss.

Pick: Robinson (+130)

Robinson making his boxing debut isn’t something that should deter bettors from placing a wager on his +130 odds since his opponent is also inexperienced. We know Robinson is an elite athlete who has done some amazing things on the NBA Court and that alone should be enough to give him the benefit of the doubt to pull off the upset at sportsbooks.

Robinson was fearless while playing in the NBA and that same tenacity will likely be on display in the ring against Jake Paul. Bettors should feel comfortable taking Robinson as the underdog but don’t expect this to be a clean fight.

Both fighters’ inexperience will show but at the end of the day, it’s heart over height. There’s a little over a month left until these “fighters” meet in the ring Robinson via his Twitter account has posted his first update on training.

If Robinson pulls off the upset over Paul not only will it make bettors some cash at USA Sportsbooks but it could also be the coming-out party for the former NBA guard’s boxing career.
