100 Thieves President and COO John Robinson recently spoke with Travis Gafford and dropped a major hint as to when the juggernaut esports and gaming entertainment brand would release its next set of apparel. 

100 Thieves hit the ground running to start out 2020 with a brand new slate of jerseys kicking the year off before lifting the veil on a sprawling new Los Angeles compound to house all staff and talent under one roof.

While announcements have been coming hot and heavy at the dawn of a new decade, it doesn’t look like the organization will be slowing down anytime soon as a huge merchandise release is supposedly right around the corner.

The 2020 100 Thieves jerseys were released in three unique styles, red, white, and black.

In a recent interview with Travis Gafford, Robinson touched on a wide array of topics pertaining to 100 Thieves. From the aforementioned Cash App Compound in Los Angeles, to the start of a new LCS Split.

Before the conversation came to a close however, Gafford touched on the booming apparel wing of the organization and how the new facility will also serve as a retail space for local fans, rather than LA natives needing to order through the 100 Thieves website the minute that a new batch is released.

While Robinson didn’t disclose an exact date just yet, he revealed a rough window as to when the next major merchandise drop will be coming.

“First retail drop in February,” Robinson revealed.

The relevant section of the interview begins at the 8:30 mark for mobile users.

While no further details were revealed as to what type of apparel will be available this time around, nor how many items will be included in the drop, the brief statement does provide a new tidbit beyond the rough date. 

Robinson explicitly called it the “first retail drop,” indicating that fans will be able to walk into the freshly minted facility and purchase new apparel in person for the first time in company history.

There’s no telling whether any exclusive merchandise will be made available just for those who visit the compound during the very first storefront activation however, though it’s likely all apparel items will simultaneously be released online as fans have grown accustomed to. 

Throughout the recent facility tour video, Nadeshot stopped by their apparel design studio and spoke with Doug Barber on camera. 

While all potential designs and yet to be revealed merchandise was blurred throughout the video, Barber mentioned how the February release will serve as a full “capsule collection with about 10 or 12 styles.”

After months of back-and-forth, Jake Paul and Nate Robinson finally stepped into the squared circle for their highly-anticipated boxing matchup, but Jake Paul dominated and wrapped it up early.

YouTubers strapping on boxing gloves and squaring up with one another was a trend kicked off by KSI and Joe Weller back in 2018. Since then, the concept has exploded – including KSI forging rivalries with the Paul brothers and fighting Logan Paul in a professional bout in Los Angeles. 

Typically, it has been all about a YouTuber fighting another content creator, but Jake Paul’s next fight was a little different. He fought former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout, and it was a dominant performance.

Paul and Robinson have been going back-and-forth for months, with their fight being delayed previously.

Jake Paul dominates Nate Robinson, Round 2 KO

Nate Robinson looked anxious right out of the gate, but it didn’t stop him from having an energetic start. He came in with his fists flying and tried to assert his dominance early on, although he looked a little clumsy at times.

Still, it wasn’t long before Jake Paul’s superior experience and skillset started to show. He dished out a series of calculated strikes and hugs to stop Nate in his tracks. It totally slowed down the momentum and even reversed it.

From that point onwards, Jake Paul was never in doubt. He downed Nate Robinson towards the end of the first round, but the former NBA star managed to get back on his feet and stay in the fight.

However, it didn’t last much longer. Jake Paul continued to dominate in the second round and sent Nate crashing down once again. He managed to get up one last time, but Jake Paul absolutely flattened him with an impressively powerful punch to knock him out and seal the deal.

Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. fight card

As for who else was in action on the card, it wasn’t full of YouTubers or other side shows like some of Paul’s other fights, but instead, actual professional bouts. Former undefeated light-heavyweight star Badou Jack was in action, moving to Cruiserweight, while the highly anticipated matchup between Tyson and Jones Jr was an electrifying affair.

  • Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr
  • Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson
  • Badou Jack vs Blake McKernan
  • Hasim Rahman Jr vs Rashad Coulter
  • Jamaine Ortiz vs Nahir Albright
  • Irvin Gonzalez vs Edward Vasquez
  • Juiseppe Cusumano vs Nick Jones

All in all, it was an impressive performance by Jake Paul. Of course, he was widely expected to win since he’s been in the game for longer than Nate Robinson.

Still, he moved and punched like a true professional, and has already set his sights on what’s next.
