🚨 Boxing legend explains exactly why he is not a fan of Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson

Posted by

Bernard Hopkins is the latest former fighter to slam the Jake Paul vs Mike Tyson contest.

Tyson makes his return to the ring against the YouTuber-turned-boxer, much to the dismay of fans and the boxing community.

And it’s safe to say Hall of Famer, Hopkins isn’t exactly excited at the prospect of ‘Iron Mike’ taking on Paul.

Speaking to Fight Hub TV, he said: “I don’t like it. I don’t like it. I look at Mike, I look at him different in a way of my era, like people looked at [Muhammad] Ali and I looked at Ali different, too. Marvin Hagler, ‘Sugar’ Ray Robinson. I don’t like it. I think it’s becoming more of a side show with some sweat and maybe some blood, if we’re lucky. I won’t watch it. I could watch two turtles race and be more excited.”

He continued: “It’s because of how I look at Mike Tyson. I’ve shared not only the ring with Mike Tyson a few times, but the era, a little tip of the era. I just think it degrades him. You’re getting $100 million, $200 million. Please, OK.”
