    Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson may be almost a month in the past, but the talking points still exist.

All because Nate Robinson fell flat to a spectacular KO. The main eventer that night, Roy Jones Jr. gave his thoughts on the matchup and said he knew Robinson was doomed from the start. “First of all, it’s not a fight that Nate should even take, because Nate is about 5’9 5’10 a 181 pounds… Jake Paul came down from 210 to 189.

    Interim middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jr. appears to be under safe hands, as he is currently being honed by former world champion Roy Jones Jr. Eubank Jr’s coach Roy Jones Jr. recently broke out his retirement to face Mike Tyson in an exhibition clash on November 28. It was a high-voltage matchup that gave steady competition to the active PPV events. That said, ‘Next Gen’ claims to have prepared his coach a couple of times for the fight.

He said, “Snoop made the night so funny, so crazy, you could not ask for a better commentator than Snoop Dogg. I appreciate all of them, but Snoop was the funniest dude. I’m talking...
