Logan Paul Reckons He Could Easily Beat Mike Tyson In A Boxing Match
| Last updated
The YouTuber has a newfound confidence in his skills following his bout against Floyd Mayweather. It was a spectacle that turned over an incredible amount of money and led to one million pay-per-view buys.
No winner was officially declared on the night, but Logan reckons he has what it takes to go up against other world-class boxers for the full eight rounds.
His belief is so sky high that he now wants a piece of arguably the scariest boxer to ever walk the face of the earth.
"Someone mentioned Mike Tyson, like how funny is it? One great at a time. Or is it like you can only fight one?" Logan said on his Impaulsive podcast.
"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."
Former heavyweight world champion Tyson only recently made his long-awaited boxing comeback.
Iron Mike's second coming was against fellow legend Roy Jones Jr in November last year at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The exhibition bout ended as a draw, but 54-year-old Tyson left the arena in search of more blood after an impressive performance where us fans saw glimpses of his younger self.
Speaking after his return tale, he even admitted he was ready to do battle again as early as this year.
It appears Logan and Iron Mike are pretty close pals too, so getting a fight signed, sealed and delivered shouldn't be too much hassle in the eyes of the promoters. If both of them want it to happen then surely it's doable...right?
After initially predicting Mayweather would knock Logan out in their bout, Tyson called his friend to admit he was wrong before sending his congratulations.
"You kicked his a**. You're bad, I was wrong," Tyson told Logan. "I'm proud of you, you kicked a**, I'm proud of you. Everybody's talking about you, you're the man.
"You went eight rounds with the greatest of all time, I was telling people they don't want to try that s***. You got him with those punches."
You'd be hard pressed to find someone who wouldn't want to see Logan go up against Tyson. Getting to witness Iron Mike bob and weave under the bright lights is what we're really talking about - we couldn't care less who he's fighting.
Now, take my money.
