Boxing: Mike Tyson offers to fight Logan and Jake Paul

Boxing legend Mike Tyson has predicted a victory for Tyson Fury in the scheduled bout against Anthony Joshua scheduled for later in the year.

Boxing legend, Mike Tyson, has said he’d happily take a fight with one of the Paul brothers.

Social media stars Jake and Logan, 24 and 26 respectively, have taken the boxing world by storm over the last 18 months.

Jake recently shared the ring with former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, while older brother Logan boxed Floyd Mayweather in June.

The YouTubers have divided opinion in the boxing world, but Tyson admits he’d jump at the opportunity to face either man.

When asked if he’d fight one of the Pauls, the 55-year-old said on his podcast: “Yeah, hell yeah.”

Guest Freddie Gibbs poured cold water on Tyson potentially facing either Paul brother, insisting they wouldn’t share the ring with him.

A defiant Tyson replied: “They would. That would be a lot of money.”

The former undisputed heavyweight champion said: “He might.

“100million bucks, they’ll do anything. They don’t care about getting beat up for $100million.”

Logan hasn’t fought since his clash with Mayweather but plans to set foot inside the ring again.

He said: “Come on, baby, baby. Come on. Yeah, of course, I have to. This is the coolest thing on the planet.

“You think about the Roman Colosseum when you watch the gladiators fight to the death.

“Look around. My brother filled this arena up in Cleveland, Ohio, his home city. It’s the coolest thing anyone could ever ask for.

“I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: Fighters, bro, modern-day gladiators. There is no more dangerous athlete.

“When the fighter walks in the room, everyone feels it. He’s got a presence. And it’s cool, I love it.

Tyson returned to the ring last November for an exhibition match with fellow great Roy Jones Jr.

And The Baddest Man of the Planet is targeting a rematch with Lennox Lewis after his old foe Evander Holyfield fell at the hands of Vitor Belfort last month.

Tyson told ES News: “Evander f****d up the money. We gotta do it with Lennox [Lewis] now.”
