Before the start of training camp, the basketball community tuned in for a highly-anticipated boxing match. On Saturday night, former NBA guard Nate Robinson laced up his boxing gloves for a bout against YouTube star Jake Paul.

Prior to the start of the super-fight, members of the Golden State Warriors chimed in on social media. Before Robinson stepped into the ring, Stephen Curry and Eric Paschall showed support for the 11-year NBA veteran.

Despite the support, the fight did not end well for the three-time Slam Dunk contest champion. After a sloppy start to the fight, Robinson was knocked out in the second round with one vicious right hand from Paul, ending the contest with 1:25 remaining in the second round. Robinson dropped flat to the canvas as the referee stepped in.

After the fight, Curry and Paschall reacted to Paul’s violent knockout over Robinson on Twitter.

During the 2011-2012 season, Robinson spent 51 games with Golden State, averaging 11.2 points on 42.4% shooting from the field with 4.5 assists, two rebounds and 1.2 steals per game. Over his stint in the Bay Area, Robinson shot 36.5% shooting from beyond the arc.

Against the Spurs, Robinson led the Warriors off the bench with a 30 point performance on 11-of-20 shooting from the field. Robinson added seven assists, two boards and a steal in 31 minutes.

Coming off a loss to Paul, the 36-year-old will now have to decide if he will still pursue a stint in boxing or return to the court.
