After what many have called an “ugly knockout,” former New York Knicks player Nate Robinson says he’s doing “OK.”
On Saturday, in his pro boxing debut, Robinson was K.O. with an overhand right by YouTube sensation Jake Paul, just less than two minutes into the second round.
Shortly after the fight, Robinson took to Instagram to share an update on his health status.
“Thank you, everyone, for all of the well wishes, I’m OK,” the 36-year-old wrote. “I appreciate @triller for the opportunity as well as everyone that has backed me during the fight. To my coaches, trainers, fans, and teammates, I appreciate all of the time and support you guys put in with me…
“It wasn’t the outcome that we wanted, but I’m thankful for the opportunity to fight on the biggest stage that there has been.”
The match occurred at Staples Center in Los Angeles just before the Mike Tyson–Roy Jones Jr. exhibition.
