Jake Paul has once again revealed his desire to fight Mike Tyson at some point in the future.
Paul has built up some relatively commendable fighting credentials, having knocked out former UFC stars Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley. However, he is yet to step into the ring with an actual boxer.
One name who has done the rounds and refused to go away is Mike Tyson, who made his return to the ring in an exhibition bout against fellow boxing legend Roy Jones Jr.
“He’s has played in more positions than what he would get if he was in a porn film” – which manager described his player this way?

Whether there is any possibility of Paul tempting Tyson back into the ring remains to be seen, but the YouTuber has once again reiterated his desire to make that fight at some point in the future.
Jake Paul on his next fight: “We’re still having some conversations with people like Mike Tyson who recently said he wanted to fight… I think it would be one of the biggest PPVs of all time. Mike Tyson, let’s make the fight happen. I’m ready and I know I’d win.” [@Boxing_Social]

Tyson would be wise to avoid it, with Paul having the youthful fitness and dynamism which could see him cause an upset, despite having the far inferior boxing brain.
We enjoyed seeing Tyson in action again against Roy Jones Jr, but that really should be the last time he puts on his gloves. Enjoy retirement and copious amounts of marijuana, Mike.
