Would Mike Tyson Fight Jake Paul or Logan Paul? “Hell Yeah.”

One of the most notorious heavyweights in the history of boxing says he’s willing to fight one of the most notorious YouTubers in the history of the internet. Actually, two of ’em.

On his Hotboxin podcast, 55-year-old Mike Tyson was asked by guest Freddie Gibbs if he’d be willing to step into the ring with either Jake or Logan Paul. “Hell yeah,” he said. “That would be a lot of money That’s the money fight. Those are the fights that make the money. Those guys have 75 million people watching them.”

Tyson previously said that he wouldn’t be interested in taking on one of the Paul brothers, but that was before he watched Logan cash in as well as hold his own against Floyd “Money” Mayweather during an exhibition fight at Hard Rock Stadium in Florida in June.

He’s apparently changed his tune and would fight either of the Pauls. “For $100 million bucks, they’d do anything,” Tyson said. “They don’t care about getting beat up.”

It’s unclear if Jake would fight Tyson, but it sounds like Logan would be up to giving it a shot. “Someone mentioned Mike Tyson,” he said during a June episode of his Impaulsive podcast. “My lawyer mentioned it and he’s like, ‘Nah, Tyson will rip your head off, you don’t stand a chance.’ I’m like, ‘I just went through all this.’ You can’t tell me I can’t beat Mike Tyson. He’s old, old.”

He’s also tough as nails and a little bit unhinged, so we’d love to see him take on one or both of the Pauls and treat them like they were pieces of Evander Holyfield’s partially missing ear.
