The former NBA point guard, who spent a season with the Boston Celtics in 2010/11, made his professional boxing debut against YouTube star Jake Paul on the undercard of Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr on Saturday Fight

Robinson held up to the 1:25 mark on Lap 2 – when Paul ended his night with a devastating knockout blow

The 5-foot-9-guard boxer tweeted ahead of the match when he “fought for my brothers in the NBA” “

Tonight I will fight for my brothers in the NBA, athletes around the world and especially for my kids #tysonjones #holdat picTwittercom / lkAqxRMBmQ

But the NBA stars who watched Saturday night weren’t exactly inspired by what they saw

Celtics teammates Jayson Tatum and Carsen Edwards were more entertained by Snoop Dogg’s “unique” color commentary during the Tyson Jones Main Event

The good news is that despite the scary knockout, Robinson is fine – and seems to be putting up with the heat
