With the news of Fr. Jake Paul’s argument with Floyd Mayweather Jr.. making waves on the internet, it was only a matter of time before boxing legend Mike Tyson would weigh the situation.
When he was approached by reporters, the 54-year-old talked about the Paul brothers ’chances in the ring, while showing nothing but love for the two of them. Here’s Mike Tyson going Jake Paul’s game against Mr. 50-0.
Mike Tyson doesn’t think Jake Paul has a chance against Mayweather
TMZ reporters approached Mike Tyson and asked him what he thought about the fight between Jake Paul and Mayweather and who he thought would win.
I don’t know, (are you worried about that fight?) A little. (Do you think Jake Paul can win?) No. I think they would beat him up pretty much.
Asked if any of the Paul brothers could take Mayweather into the ring, Mike Tyson simply nodded disapprovingly and dismissed the question as a joke.
The reporter then asked Mike Tyson if he would ever step into the ring against the Paul brothers, to which Mike Tyson had the most complete answer.
No, I love those guys. (If you were offered a fight, would you accept it?) No, I love those guys.
Boxing legend has said in the past that the Paul brothers were good for the sport in terms of ratings and even felt Jake Paul had a decent chance against Ben Askren in the ring, something Jake Paul did well by knocking Ben Askren out of the first round of the match.
Whether Mayweather vs Jake Paul will become a reality in the ring or not remains to be seen.
