Edit: title should say +200 as in the money line.
 

Boxing tomorrow. That line seems crazy to me. 
 

an NBA athlete vs a 23 year old YouTuber. Jake Paul trains but has looked sloppy in 2 fights against other spazzy YouTubers. Anyone considering betting on this?

He is strong as shit and had unreal hops for his height. He at one point probably was one of the greatest athletes on earth. Today, not so much.

Typically I would never pick a basketball player to win in a combat situation, but Nate is not your average basketball player in that he was never a skinny guy, and had insane athletic ability. 

If you are in the nba, you are athetic, but Nate was SUPER athletic and has strong legs which can equate to power. 

 

But, I have to ask, what is the size and weight discrepancy in this fight?  Isn't Logan considerably bigger?

 

Logan's wrestling will help in that he more than likely wont be a bitch when it comes to physical combat.  He won't be scared of pain b/c he has wresting experience that has made him comfortable with being uncomfortable, if that makes sense.  Plus his wrestling helps determining distance which will help in a boxing fight.

Well he is an amazing athlete. To play in the nba at the level he did at his height is not easy. He won the dunk contest 3 times and he's only 5'9

He also started as a freshman for the Washington Huskies football team. He was a beast of an athlete despite his height.

I might be ignorant, but I just don't consider someone who can dunk to be a great athlete. That doesn't impress me much.

Ok but someone who is 5'9 and plays in the nba at a high level is undoubtedly a good athlete. He had to be an extra good athlete to make up for most of the people around him being a foot taller than him. Im not saying he's going to win a boxing match but no one can deny he's athletic.

If you're 5'9 and you're dunking on a 10 foot hoop, that means you're jumping 2 feet into the air.

How is that not athletic.

At under 6 feet tall it is an incredible athletic feat. And that's only part of his athleticism.

No. Like what attributes make a great athlete. Speed? Quickness? Agility? Explosiveness? What is athleticism?

Don't expect a real answer out of that dummy. You won't get one. The real answer is, he has no idea. He just hears people say the word "athletic" and has never stopped to think what it actually entails.

Nate is scrappy. I remember he punched out a huge guy on his own team while butt baked in the showers after a game.  I think while in the New York knicks.  I think paul is the much better technical boxer, but Nate is all power.and explosion.  He could have gone pro in football too.   My heart says Jake paul, but my wallet if betting says Nate.

If Nate has been sparring with actual hitters, he will destroy this dude. If he's been hitting mitts and jumping rope, it will be an ugly dance off devoid of violence

If this was MMA, I'd probably make it 50/50 since athleticism is such a huge factor.

 

In boxing, the guy who has trained and fought in boxing will win 9/10 over an untrained beast.
