Retired boxing superstar and fifteen times world champion Floyd Mayweather has expressed his disapproval of the mockery and ridicule retired NBA star Nate Robinson has been facing following his defeat against Jake Paul.
The fight between famous YouTuber Jake Paul and former point guard Nate Robinson on Saturday night saw Paul winning his second bout with a devastating KO to Robinson.
Losing on his professional boxing debut has been earning Robinson a lot of tease from fellow basketball icons, with the likes of Stephen Curry, Joel Embid, Nick Young and many more trolling the former Knicks, Celtics, Bulls and Nuggets player.
On the other hand, Floyd Mayweather has taken a stand in support of Nate Robinson, stating that no black sportsperson should be mocking the former basketball player.
I’m here to uplift you: Floyd Mayweather extends moral support to Nate Robinson
Yesterday, Floyd Mayweather took to Instagram to share a photo of himself with Robinson, along with a supportive caption.
“Nate, I’m proud of you and I will always stand behind all my brothers. I will never kick my brother when he’s down. It’s ok for people to voice their opinions on social media, but no black athletes or black entertainers, especially black NBA players should make a mockery out of you,” the 43-year-old wrote.
“We are supposed to all stand with each other through the good, bad and ugly. I’m here to uplift you and let you know we all love you and congratulate you for just making an effort.”
“SIDENOTE: The times I’ve had issues with another brother is when they came at me first. I was just defending myself,” Mayweather concluded.
