And former Bull Nate Robinson is boxing Youtuber Jake Paul. Yup, you read that right. The Athletic's Shams Charania first had the scoop:

The bout, as Charania notes, will serve as an undercard match for the Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. pay-per-view fight on Sept. 12 that was made headlines Thursday. 

"Jake Paul, I want all the smoke," Robinson said in a statement to Charania.

"Nate will meet the canvas early," said Paul.

Brandon "Scoop B." Robinson, who recently hosted Nate Robinson on his podcast, reported the two will duke out eight rounds (three minutes a pop) at 185 pounds each.

The quality of the sparring will be anyone's guess. But, for Bulls fans, it could prove a fun opportunity to root for NateRob once again.
