YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul and Mike Tyson have reportedly reached an agreement for a boxing fight. As always Jake Paul wants to fight big names in the boxing ring in order to profit via stream sales. As of right now Paul is likely to fight the former undisputed world heavyweight champion, Mike Tyson.
Mike Tyson has expressed his interest in returning to the boxing ring for a big money fight. Jake Paul and Mike Tyson have a 30 years age gap between them. At the age of 55 years old, ‘Iron’ Mike showed a pretty incredible speed and hitting power when he came out of retirement in 2020 for an exhibition bout against Roy Jones Jr.
According to The Sun Mike Tyson has agreed to a big fight in Las Vegas against Jake Paul. Both parties have reached a verbal agreement. The source also added that this fight bridges the gap between old-school boxing fans and the new generation of followers. The organizers hope the fight will generate as much as $50 million as pay-per-view event.
Before this Mike Tyson said that he wants to fight Jake Paul’s older brother, Logan Paul because he believed Logan would be more likely to say yes due to his size. Jake Paul is widely believed to be a better boxer between the two so the fight makes more sense.
Their expectation for the money generated from this fight is not exaggerated. Jake Paul has made a name for himself and is one of the biggest PPV draws among popular boxers in the world, despite taking on non-professional boxer such as a fellow YouTuber and former MMA fighters.
