According to Sun Online, representatives for Tyson and Paul are said to be drawing up plans for the match to be broadcast on pay television (PPV) later this year.

Tyson is now tipped to return to the ring once more, but this time facing a 24-year-old opponent who boasts a record of five wins and no loss – despite the more than 30-year age gap between surname.
Initially, it was rumored that Mike would fight Jake’s brother Logan, but now it seems that the opponent has been identified as the younger brother.
While Tyson’s representative still denied, a source from Vegas, who is doing business with Tyson, confirmed that “if all goes to plan” the fight will go ahead. The source said: ‘Mike and Jake are gearing up for a match in Las Vegas. An oral agreement was reached, but like all sports business, the issue now is the contract and the division of money.”

According to The Sun, the youngest world heavyweight champion in history not only criticized the fights of brothers Jake and Logan Paul, but also supported them. And now, he was on his way to profiting from their cooperation. “If Floyd Mayweather takes on Logan Paul, then Mike Tyson is ready to fight Jake Paul in Las Vegas,” wrote The Sun.
Paul recently knocked out former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley – ending their rivalry following their previous decision to split in 2021. He also beat fellow YouTuber, AnEsonGib, the baller. basket Nate Robinson and another MMA star, Ben Askren.
Paul has since developed an interest in MMA and has even been seen practicing his foot kicks. However, fans were not impressed with Paul’s technique and insisted that he would be defeated if he entered the world of MMA. Instead, he should continue to box.
