Is Mike Tyson Fighting Jake Paul? This Is The First Tyson Is Hearing Of It
Mike Tyson just put a pin in any hopes the public had of seeing a fight between the “Baddest Man on the Planet” and YouTube-star-turned-boxer Jake Paul.
“This is new to me,” Tyson tweeted on Monday. “I saw Jake in St. Barths and he never mentioned it.”
It was recently reported by myriad outlets that “[a] verbal deal has been struck to get it on, but like all forms of sports business, now it’s all about the contracts and money split… Mike is looking for a certain figure to get into the ring with a profit share guarantee.”
However, a tweet straight from the horse’s mouth has ixnayed that potential high-profile exhibition bout.
Tyson, of course, was at one point the most feared boxer in the world and is considered one of the greatest heavyweights of all time. “Iron Mike” fought from 1985 to 2005
Paul is a social media personality who began his boxing career in August 2018. He rose to fame on the Vine social media app before landing the role of Dirk Mann on Disney Channel’s Bizaardvark for two seasons.
He has come under fire for his YouTube videos in the past due to trespassing and other related charges.
