Floyd Mayweather goes off on Black NBA players for making fun of Nate Robinson

Floyd Mayweather

On Saturday, former NBA player Nate Robinson stepped into the boxing ring for a bout against YouTube star Jake Paul, only to get knocked out.

Some current NBA players made fun of Robinson as a result, but legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. urged Black NBA players to lay off Robinson and band together as a race.

At just 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds, Robinson is far from an imposing figure, yet as an NBA player, he made up for what he lacked in size with his energy and chutzpah.

He played 11 seasons in the league and made a name for himself as a spark plug off the bench.

Robinson’s boxing match with Paul served as the undercard for the much-anticipated return of Mike Tyson, who took on Roy Jones Jr.

The bout between Tyson and Jones ended up in a split draw.
