Jake Paul does NOT support from his upcoming boxing match with the NBA star Nate Robinson despite the mysterious FBI investigation involving him, TMZ Sports has learnt.
In fact, our sources say that Jake focuses on the fight to help keep his mind off the trial while everything plays out.
Paul vs. Robinson was initially put on the big card until September 12 Mike Tyson against. Roy Jones Jr. fights Triller … but reports say the date is postponed to November 28.
We did some digging to find out if Jake’s legal situation had anything to do with the new date – and as one source put it, “As of right now, Jake Paul is still confirmed. Do not expect that to change.”
As we previously reported, The FBI attacked Calabasas’ home on Wednesday – seizure of several firearms from the home.
Officials say the investigation stems from alleged criminal activity which went down at one George Floyd protest at the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall back in May.
Paul was originally accused of misdemeanor for his alleged role in the incident, but that charge was dropped.
The FBI has now taken over the probe in Paul – although they have not specifically said what he is accused of having done wrong.
In the meantime, we learn that Jake has channeled his energy into boxing training … working constantly over the last few days.
Our sources also say that Jake is trying to limit communication with friends outside the boxing team.
He has also re-evaluated his friendships to reduce negative influences.
We say that Jake has also broken ties with a former friend Armani Izadi – whose Vegas home was also attacked last week.
When it comes to fighting, Jake and Nate have been talk rubbish to each other for months – and it seems as if they are down to break whether it is in a ring or on the street.
