I don't really know anything about boxing or either of these two guys boxing skills. Maybe Robinson just needs a little money or maybe he's always loved boxing or maybe he's just bored and wants some publicity. I mean there's no harm in taking the fight either for him. What's he going to do, hurt his boxing legacy?
I agree the height advantage means something, but only if you have the technical skill to make it mean something. Not sure if that's really true with Paul or not, but Paul has at least done a couple of these celebrity fights, so he's probably been doing training for a few years on boxing. Unless Robinson has just loved boxing as a spare time gig, quite possible, then he's probably not going to be at the same technical level as Paul.
