    10. Nikolai Z

      Jake went in with the advantage he had more skill and was way bigger than Robinson that's a recipe for disaster can't believe they actually cleared that fight they must be losing tons of money

    11. Death Row

      Max wanted to laugh so bad at 0.50 😭😭

    12. Antoinette S

      Stephen A. is hilarious

    13. Darkness Dark

      I felt really bad for Nate Robinson because he’s only trained for a few months man I respect Nate for at least going to the ring

    14. Mega street Hitz

      🤣🤣🤣🤣 Smith is funny asf

    15. Future Trunks

      I hate women

    16. Harold Roacher

      Did stephen a cough to keep from laughing, smh ,lol, " put to sleep"

    17. Michael Holler

      Don’t ever underestimate your opponent!!

    18. Tyson Kammer

      He just didn’t get knocked out he got destroyed!!! an NBA player should not be a boxer

    19. Idris Salaam

      Totally Sad! There was no game plan. Who was his trainer?

    20. Gavin Mendez

      The other guy was about to crack a smile 😂

    21. Nick Martinez

      I remember when rocky beat up on Ivan drago hahaha .... Punchers chance

    22. patrick pilkington

      I love hearing Max talk the Sweet Science.

    23. ABG626

      snoop should do boxing commentary foshizzle

    24. polenio benedel

      Commentators: Nate with a steal ,crossover behind the legs, pump up fake step back behind the back, he will go for a dunk . OMG😱😱😱 Nate miss the dunk 😂

    25. Christopher Smith

      Mike is the more technical fighter? Always has been? Are you crazy kellerman?!?! I'm here to tell you straight from Louisville KY. Home if the GREATEST...... You're wrong on that one. Pure and simple

    26. Gingy_bb

      Stephen A is correct though the public needs to be educated on combat so they can be a little more humble and just respect everybody.

    27. Sensa

      boxing is an unhealthy sport

    28. Leo Derosia

      Getting in a ring is no joke vs a decent boxer.

    29. Dyingforlife

      Why does ESPN hate Jake Paul?

    30. John Tate

      Here goes SAS talking like he knows anything about boxing.

    31. Matron Malice

      Wait, wait, wait Jake Paul is legit? It really is the end of the world.

      1. Matron Malice


    32. Wyndel Darville

      Nate needed to stay on the basketball court.

    33. Ryan Sylvan

      Bouncing a ball and putting it into a basket does NOT make you tough. Lebron James would meet the same fate if he fought anyone .

    34. kriss monte

      Stephen you are truly full of your self nothing to do with this video just a fact dude. Get over you

    35. MTB Fringe

      Kellerman 24/7 sellout!! Y’all know that the Tyson fight was bs & hurt the sport of boxing! 2 100yr old boxers?? GTFO!

    36. FJUWANA

      O lawd! ...

    37. Nathaniel Austin

      Nate to Nate the last time I had to be awaken with smelling salts I got hit in practice while catching a football as a wide receiver. The fact they had to use the salt my me think he didn't even practice. The man didn't even have control of his own nerves. He could have sat down in the chair and started nervously shitting and wouldn't even know what happened. Street fighting is not the same as boxing because it has strategy.

    38. Roxanna Suanne

      "3:56" *when anyone needed a lot Gift Cards then try this 𝗚𝗥𝗔𝗕𝗖𝗔𝗥𝗗𝗦.𝗕𝗘𝗦𝗧* available to all+ ⚙

    39. Obrien Tuggle

      "5:12" *when anyone wanted tons of Gift Cards then use 𝗚𝗥𝗔𝗕𝗖𝗔𝗥𝗗𝗦.𝗕𝗘𝗦𝗧* great for all... 🔥

    40. sPUCKO

      Nate gonna want the rematch, I think.

    41. gioyu comi

      I hate when Stephen A talks about fights... most of the time he's clueless

    42. Rico Baca

      I hear he has good leaping come he didn't jump out of the ring?

    43. Mario Williams

      I’m mad at his friends his people who is supposed to be there to tell him don’t do it bro......

    44. Mario Williams

      Smh 🤦🏾‍♂️

      1. gioyu comi

        Respect to Nate him and people who are making fun of him shouldn't be, I don't think unless they would get in there , He tried so that's all u can ask of him , And he doesn't H

    45. Kendrick Lamar's Subconscious

      Rule one in boxing - - never lead with your face 🤦🏾‍♂️🥊🤣


      The royal stepson differently peck because hammer proximately bathe unlike a relieved sword. nauseating, endurable bowl

    47. Bobby Smith


    48. 7PitBullz

      I hate when Stephen A talks about fights... most of the time he's clueless

    49. miko foin

      Stephen A: This is not a laughing matter Also Stephen A: This man came in with his face... HIS FACE 🤣🤣🤣

    50. tony Turner

      Two losers talking about two other losers, ESPN sucks

    51. Cooyah Shakur

      I still love Nate. 💯💯💯

    52. Craig Phillips

      Nate better stick to playing one and one in basketball 🏀

      1. miko foin

        Cough sleep haha loved it 😂

    53. eric young

      Stephen a smith a fool 😂😂

    54. Caimito Marañon

      My respects to Nate... Making NBA great again!

    55. Lander

      Roy was hugging 🤗 mike Tyson to death ☠️ scaredy-cat

    56. Privacy Matters

      What fight did Max watch? Because the fight I watched between Tyson and Jones was not "competitive". Tyson dominated in all aspects. More strikes landed. More significant strikes landed. More technique displayed. More stamina shown.

    57. M-Pak

      What happened to the three knock down Rule? They should have been stopped the fight. When he got up the last time before the knockout everyone knew it was coming

    58. Advanced Chiropractic

      People that never fought do not understand!

    59. Create Yourlife

      Mike pulled back to stay within the rules. He could've knocked Roy out anytime he wanted to.

    60. David Watkins

      Respect to Nate him and people who are making fun of him shouldn't be, I don't think unless they would get in there , He tried so that's all u can ask of him , And he doesn't HAVE to give anything up, its up to him , many people have lost their first fight especially against more experienced opponents, but at the end of the day it's up to Nate if he wants to get back in there again with someone else or Even rematch of whatever HE BELIEVES IF HE IS CAPABLE OF, 💯👊😎

    61. H M

      LOL I haven't stopped watching the KO, that was a prime example of, don't step into the ring if you can't BOX!!!!! End of story...

    62. Jeremy Daoud

      stephan a doesnt get to talk about boxing🤣🤣

    63. Adrian Blake-Williams

      He got out to sleep 😂

    64. jhoe1upGuy

      Did Nate think he was going to beat Jake with just his blackness?

      1. 82ndAirborne BCo 2/508

        Apparently these sports announcers do believe that. Did you here Shannon Sharpe? Banking on Mayweather's blackness versus Paul's whiteness. What happen with Tyson fury vs Deontae Wilder?

    65. wnnalis cioov

      Legend Says: He was reliving his moments at the dunk contest at the time he was out.

    66. ✯RedStar✯ Graal

      I came here hoping that Steven a would say something to make this loss less painful

    67. tony 2times

      Cough sleep haha loved it 😂

    68. Michael Wilson

      The worst part of all this....he lost to a guy who can't fight!!!

      1. wnnalis cioov

        Why do they let this dummy talk about boxing. Stephen is a clown

    69. Benjamin Mairs

      Let me tell you the story of right hand left hand: A tale of good and evil LIKE It was with this hand Kane iced his brother SUBSCRIBE These five fingers, they go straight to the soul of man

    70. Cel

      Max always calls the fights fair.

    71. Khaos Killer88

      Yea i agree i want to see jake paul face someone who is more of a professional boxer not these type of fight cause you know who will win nate barely had any time to get ready and just learned how to fight so yea man very sad and i hope nate is ok but they should of done that better then the way they did and congrats for nate roberson for at least trying

      1. Ebonix33

        Lol...jake only had one fight before nate...

    72. tigerbiterhater

      SAS wanted to laugh so bad lmao. You can already tell that Tyson wasn’t gonna punch Roy in the head. Nate Robinson is not brave. Just foolish.

    73. Edward Henderson

      That's Nate's fault. He ran his mouth and then got put into a comma. It is what it is. That's a lesson to everyone thinking boxing is just a street fight.

    74. YAVIAH

      Snoop was so drugged up he thought he was in a Trap house 😂

    75. Rabble Rebel

      Nate.... There's a price to pay, *but at least you got paid* 😂🤣

    76. pat22nasty


    77. Ernest Hollins

      I agree you don't play Boxing, and yes Nate did get put to sleep but anyone at any giving time can get put to sleep even at the highest level. Just saying... You remember Manny Pacquiao? Also you would hear it in an old film the saying "never play at fighting" (Shaolin vs. Lama).

    78. Paul Thoroughgood

      Yeah, but Nate dunked on Shaq just to be funny, anything after that in a bonus really

    79. Brian Showers

    85. Law Hughes

I thought it was inspiring and made these me feel like I can make it out but I must go through to make it out God please send peace and blessings to these men and there homes for there unmistakable courage

    86. James Johnson

      Lowkey dissing lol

    87. Law Hughes

      Iconic fight I loved it to see them going threw challenge in life

    88. Ray Cash

      Boxing is something you train for since a kid, not when you’re train for a few months. Lol

    89. indian army

    94. Creed ex

      Mike won that fight

    95. Nickie B

      Mike took it easy on roy he didnt throw any uppercuts upstairs and thats his best ammo

    96. Blak Drago

      You have to be a super professional not to laugh during the talk of Nate Robinson on me I would have been dying laughing on that set.

    97. cheryl hinneburg

      That was not a fight. Why are they not calling it like it is? Can't criticize these guys, afraid they might want to knock you out? It was painful to watch. Snoop Dog sucks as an announcer!

    98. Justin Take

      The alert shape demographically enter because beautician intracellularly nod circa a bright wash. telling, ill-fated sheet

      If you’re not a fighter don’t get in the ring. You’re going to get hurt
