Mike Tyson Wants Jake Paul Fight To Happen This Year

MIKE TYSON is open to sensationally fighting Jake Paul - but warned it must happen this year.

And the youngest heavyweight champion of all time seemingly has no concerns over their skill or 30-year age gap.

Tyson said on Jimmy Kimmel: "Anything is possible, it's got to happen this year, got to happen this year."

Iron Mike, 55, retired professionally in 2005 and has gone on to build a cannabis empire.

In November 2020 he made a sensational boxing comeback and drew with Roy Jones Jr, 53, over eight exhibition rounds.

Tyson has since been linked with a fight against YouTuber-turned boxer Jake Paul, 25, who won on his undercard two years ago.

He said: "I've never taken it very serious but that could be really interesting.

"He's skilled enough yes, I'm going to give it to him, he's skilled enough because he keeps winning.

"He's beating people that he should not really be beating and he's doing good, man."
