Mike Tyson and Jake Paul were due to box on July 20th but after the icon’s health issues the fight was scrapped.

Tyson suffered a recent ulcer flare up which meant he was unable to train for his bout with the YouTuber-turned-boxer.

But another of the sports legends Roy Jones Jr. has thrown his name into the hat to take on ‘The Problem Child’.

Speaking to Betway he said: “With the situation of the [Tyson vs Paul] fight, I think that’s a great idea. And I’ll be ready and in shape, because if the fight doesn’t happen, then I’m the ideal guy to substitute in place of Mike Tyson to fight Jake Paul. It is something I have been thinking about.”

“If the [Jake Paul] fight is out there, then yes [I would take it].”

“The other day somebody asked me whether I would fight Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in an exhibition, and that’s crazy. I would jump on it, but now that this thing has come up, it makes sense to get into shape [to fight] Jake Paul.”

“It would be one of the biggest fights of this decade.”
