Nate Robinson pushing for Jake Paul rematch after ‘$2 million fiasco’

Nate Robinson pushing for Jake Paul rematch after ‘$2 million fiasco’

The rematch no one wants to see.

Nate Robinson is working on a rematch with Jake Paul after his infamous loss to the YouTube star in November, Stephen A. Smith reported Monday on ESPN.

Smith, according to TMZ, quoted a source close to the former Knicks guard while appearing on “First Take.”

“Nate walked out the arena, realized he was not trained well. [He] apologized for not listening and collected a little over $2 million for that fiasco. He’s fine,” the source reportedly told Smith.

“They are trying to get him to fight in a rematch, if you can believe that. Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather wants to train him, if he agrees. Crazy but true.”

It would be crazy.

The 36-year-old Robinson was annihilated by Paul, 24, in their first fight, ending in a brutal knockout with Robinson laying face down on the canvas after Paul connected on a vicious right.

Paul backed up that win with another victory Saturday, when he knocked out former MMA fighter Ben Askren in the first round.

After Askren’s defeat, Robinson posted a meme of Smith on Instagram and was pushing for another chance at Paul.

“I still want that rematch,” Robinson wrote below the meme.
