Logan Paul Says People Believe Jake Paul Is This Generation’s Mike Tyson And Muhammad Ali


Logan Paul Says People Believe Jake Paul Is This Generation’s Mike Tyson And Muhammad Ali

Jake Paul has been called a lot of things since becoming a celebrity but this latest one might have taken it a step too far.

The younger Paul brother is now five from five wins in boxing and he's talking himself up as a pretty decent fighter.

However, when he sat down with brother Logan for the latest episode of his Impaulsive podcast, there were some comparisons made about Tyson and Ali.

Yes, that's right.


Jake Paul, someone who has been boxing for two years, is already being compared to Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali, arguably two of the most incredible boxers of all time.

During the podcast chat, Logan said: "You know what they've been saying? They've been saying this: our great grandparents had Muhammad Ali, our parents had Mike Tyson, and we have Jake Paul."

Jake then revealed he shares a birthday with Mike Tyson and that must 'mean something'.


What that could possibly mean is unbeknownst to the world. I mean, I share a birthday with Camila Cabello but that doesn't mean I think I'm going to become a world-wide singing sensation.

Jake recalled doing an interview with Tyson and claimed he freaked out about the same birthday.

"When I sat with Mike Tyson on his podcast, bro, he's so smart and wise and he was sitting next to me for like 20 minutes just preaching knowledge," he said.

"And he goes, 'Bro, you're the GOAT, January 17th people are not to be messed with'. When I told him my birthday, he was like, 'Oh my god'.


"He like freaked out. He literally freaked out and he says, 'I see it now. It all makes sense'."

Yes...so much sense.

This isn't the first time comparisons have been made between Jake Paul, Mike Tyson and even Muhammad Ali.


In fact, the YouTuber himself even made that claim earlier this year.

Ahead of his first fight with Tyron Woodley, the YouTuber-cum-boxer explained to Brian Custer: "I am on a trajectory to become the biggest prizefighter in the world.

"For the kids, I look like Mike Tyson, your grandpa had Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson, your dad had Floyd Mayweather, this generation has Jake Paul."

It's worth pointing out that Paul has yet to fight a single boxer in a boxing match. He's fought two YouTubers, a former NBA basketballer and now two MMA fighters.
