How to watch Paul vs Robinson, Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr – Fight date, undercard, TV and live stream details
How to watch Jake Paul vs. Nate Robinson fight via live online stream Jake Paul and Nate Robinson face off in a six-round cruiserweight fight on Saturday. We break down how you can watch the fight on TV and via live online stream.
We get some high profile boxing this weekend, even if it’s questionable how good it will be. Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. top a seven-fight card at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on Saturday, November 28th. The event starts at 8 p.m. ET, with the main card getting underway at approximately 9 p.m.
Tyson and Jones tops the card, but the penultimate fight on the card will bring a curiosity factor in its own right. YouTube personality Jake Paul is fighting his second career professional fight, and third overall fight, when he takes on former three-time NBA Slam Dunk champion Nate Robinson in a six-round cruiserweight fight.
Paul fought fellow YouTube personality Ali Eson Gib at the beginning of the year, winning via first round TKO in his pro debut. Robinson has never fought in a boxing match before, although he has said he did some boxing training as part of his NBA workouts. He’s been training since, but is still about to have his very first career boxing match.
Former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson and one-time heavyweight champ and four-weight world titleholder Roy Jones Jr. will meet in an exhibition fight, meaning the rules will not be like that of a typical “official” contest.
Many of the changes were made only recently. The most notable is that there will be no knockouts. In addition, the bout will be stopped immediately if there are any cuts sustained by either man. And though there will be no official judges or “winner”, per se, the WBC are set to provide ex-fighters in a ceremonial judging capacity, presumably to give the paying audience some sort of conclusion.
The exhibition, originally set for September but pushed back in order to maximize preparations, was already shifted into a format of eight two-minute rounds because Tyson and Jones, 54 and 51 respectively, are opting not to wear headgear.
Both men have got themselves back into exceptional shape for the showdown, and Tyson has expressed a desire to use the exhibition as a starting point for a “Legends Only” brand of retired sports superstars returning to what made them famous.
Here’s how to watch the event, which also features YouTuber Jake Paul vs. three-time NBA dunk champ Nate Robinson.
