Mike Tyson Was Impressed By Logan Paul's Performance

Mike Tyson says he was impressed by Logan Paul's performance, but that he needs to fight another pro to test him further if he's really serious.

The former heavyweight champion was discussing the YouTuber's fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr., and believes there's one man out there who would be the perfect opponent.

Speaking to former welterweight Zab Judah, Iron Mike said Paul will need to fight someone more his build next time.

He said: "I'm trying to get Logan Paul to fight Badou Jack. I wanna see what he says about that."

To which Judah replied: "Yeah, that's a real fight now. He fights Badou Jack, Logan Paul is gonna be in a big fight.

"That's a whole different fight. You fight that guy, Badou is gonna give you a fight. Badou coming to fight! That's all Badou do is fight!"

Jack fought at the Mayweather/Paul event and previously held the WBC super-middleweight title, and at over six-foot would be a different kind of test for the social media star.

Following the bout, Paul said during his press conference that he had a list of all the people who said he couldn't go toe-to-toe with Mayweather, 44. And even Tyson was on it.

Imitating his lisp, Paul said: "Floyd didn't beat my f***ing ass, Mike."

Responding to the comments, Tyson told Judah: "He's right, he's right. I thought Floyd was gonna stop him. He's right."

Paul somehow managed to go eight rounds with Money during their bout in Miami over the weekend.

Neither man could knock the other out, with the YouTuber somehow going the distance with the boxing legend.

The former champion outclassed Paull for much of it, with him landing a number of punches.

However, Paul was able to keep going and stuck in there, taking the fight all the way.

Following the bout, Mayweather praised Paul for being 'better than he thought', and that he 'had fun'.

Logan said it was an 'honour' to step in the ring with the legend, saying 'happy I made it out'.
