Logan Paul Says He Would 'F***ing Beat' Mike Tyson In A Boxing Match
| Last updated
Logan Paul has levelled some big words against the rumoured opponent of his boxing match.
Many have suggested the YouTuber-cum-fighter is tipped to fight boxing legend Mike Tyson early next year however nothing has been confirmed just yet.
While the thought of Paul going up against Tyson seems like a death wish, the social media star reckons he wouldn't just win, but he would absolutely smash the veteran fighter.
He told Seconds Out that nothing had been officially organised just yet.
But he was offended when he saw headlines saying that he would get absolutely pummelled by Tyson if they did go toe-to-toe in the ring.
"So a fight that I initially hadn't even considered, now people actually don't think I'd win, this is offensive," he said. "Now I'm kind of considering it, just to shut people the f*** up.
"But what's the f***ing win here? I prove everyone wrong and go, 'Yeah I did it'. And a legend who I respect and love dearly is sitting on the floor. F*** that."
He also bragged to a bunch of reporters about how it would feel weird beating up 'an old man'.
"What happens if I beat Mike Tyson?" he asked. "Do people wanna watch that? I'm telling you, I would f***ing beat Mike Tyson. If people would watch that fight, yeah I would do it."
Logan Paul believes Tyson is 'too old' to fight him and his recent match against Floyd Mayweather proves he can hold his own with boxing gloves.
"We saw it with Floyd, there's no reason I should've been able to last. He's aging. Father time takes a toll on everyone and Tyson's 55," he said.
"What happens? I go in there and knock him out for what? For what?"
Mike Tyson has hit back at the allegations that his time in the ring has now passed.
When he was asked about the prospect of fighting Logan Paul, Tyson himself said: "You're talking to me? About taking on [Paul] - Maybe. I'm an old man, you know? I don't know what I could do now."
Either way, the former heavyweight champ plans to have a boxing match in February, we just don't know against who.
He added: "I am going to have a return fight in February and we are pretty sceptical about the opponent, but it will be a really stimulating opponent."
We'll just have to wait and see.
