Boston Celtics icon Paul Pierce was as heartbroken or more than Nate Robinson after the latter was KO’d by Jake Paul on Saturday night. Robinson made his debut as a professional boxer against the internet personality, serving as the co-main event of the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. card.
Paul only needed two rounds to get the job done and dominated the 3x Slam Dunk contest champion, knocking him down with a big right hand. After that, he repeated the dose, sending Robinson to the canvas, which prompted the referee to stop the action, declaring Paul as the winner of the bout.
Before the fight, Pierce was excited for Robinson, yelling and cheering for his friend as the biggest fan of all. That was great but his reaction to the KO was even better.
After the fight, Pierce showed his disappointment with the result of the fight, just saying ‘damn’, while Robinson laid on the canvas, out of this world. The difference between videos is incredible and everybody was laughing at Pierce’s reaction.

That was heartbreaking. You could hear the pain in Pierce’s voice and it was nothing but hilarious. Perhaps he had bet some money on Robinson and lost that or he really wanted his friend to get the victory in his first professional bout. Even when he doesn’t want to, Pierce always finds a way to make people laugh.
