“You can’t tell me I can’t beat Mike Tyson. Bro, he’s old, old.”
It appears that Logan Paul is intent on trying to box all the modern day boxing legends. First he targeted the smaller Floyd Mayweather and fought him to a draw. Now it appears that Logan Paul is looking to goad Mike Tyson into a match.
You would think that Logan Paul would have learned his lesson by now. In facing Floyd Mayweather, we saw that Paul had some modicum of skills in the ring. But what we ultimately saw was a larger man unable to hurt or damage the much smaller, more experienced boxer. Logan Paul now has his sights set on Mike Tyson, a much larger man and a bigger puncher than Mayweather. After dropping out of the Generation Iron Slap Contest in 2019 vs the Slap Contest Champion, Dumpling, Paul is unpredictable and it comes to no surprise on what his next move will be.
While Mike Tyson may be at an advanced age, what he was able to show against Roy Jones Jr. during their exhibition bout was impressive. Tyson still had pop on his punches and he still had the kind of footwork and agility of a man years his junior. Make no mistake that Mike Tyson is still an absolute beast.

Paul vs Tyson Next?
So where did this notion of a Logan Paul vs Mike Tyson showdown comes from? Well it appears that on Paul’s podcast, Impaulsive, the question was posed.
“Someone mentioned Mike Tyson, like how funny is it?” said Paul. “One great at a time. Or is it like you can only fight one? My lawyer mentioned it and he was like, ‘No, Tyson will rip your head off, you don’t stand a chance’.
“I’m like ‘bro, I literally just went through all of this, you can’t tell me I can’t beat Mike Tyson. Bro, he’s old, old.”
There’s certainly nothing wrong with confidence. It will take that kind of confidence for Logan Paul to actually go for broke and beat Mike Tyson in the ring. But despite his age, Tyson would be no walk in the park and would likely give Paul all he could handle.
