Mike Tyson And Logan Paul Reportedly Set To Fight In February

Mike Tyson and Logan Paul are reportedly set to fight next February, according to popular news and entertainment show Drama Alert.

Earlier this month, Tyson said he'd love to fight Logan Paul - or his brother Jake - following comments the YouTuber made back in June, suggesting he could easily take on the former heavyweight world champ as he was 'old'.

And now it seems things may be progressing, with reports saying that the two may be fighting each other in just a matter of months.

Keem Star, of the YouTube show Drama Alert, tweeted yesterday to say that 'sources' indicated that Paul would be going against Tyson in 'Feb 2022'.

Tyson, 55, stepped out of retirement and back into the ring for his exhibition fight against Roy Jones Jr. last year.

And it seems now he's up for more, having discussed large-scale, celebrity boxing matches in a recent episode of his Hotboxin' YouTube series.

Tyson and guest Freddie Gibbs talked about how 'boxing fell off' before reeling off some matches they'd like to see, with Gibbs saying: "They just need to put the right fights together, man. You know what I'm sayin'?"

He then went on to criticise the recent rise in 'celebrity' boxing matches, adding: "I'm sick of seeing of all these Jake Paul fights and all that type of s**t."

Tyson replied: "Well, that's the money fight.

"Those are the fights that make the money. Those guys have 75 million people watching them."

When asked by Gibbs if he would take a fight against either of the Paul brothers he replied: "Hell yeah. They would, that would be a lot of money."

Tyson went on to say that, out of the two, he'd rather fight Logan because he managed to last an impressive eight rounds against Floyd Mayweather.

Asked if he reckoned the brothers would take a fight against him, Tyson seemed confident, saying: "$100 million bucks? They'll do anything."

Paul, 26, has also expressed his interest in fighting Tyson, saying on his Impaulsive podcast earlier this year: "Someone mentioned Mike Tyson, like how funny is it? 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."

It's worth noting that nothing has been officially confirmed just yet, but we will of course keep you posted, so watch this space...
