Fresh off a draw with Floyd Mayweather, YouTuber Logan Paul wants to get back in the ring with another professional boxer, Mike Tyson.
Barely two weeks since his last exhibition fight, Logan Paul thinks he has the chops to take on Mike Tyson. So far, there’s been no response from Tyson, but we’re hoping he gives him an earful.
The exhibition match saw Paul walk in with a $150 000 card Charizard card, and I’d be curious to see what sort of attire he would sport at the next match.
Speaking on his Impaulsive podcast via the NY Post, he explained why he was the best fit. “Someone mentioned Mike Tyson, like how funny is it? One great at a time,” he said.
“My lawyer mentioned it, and he’s like, ‘No, Tyson will rip your head off. You don’t stand a chance.’” Yet, Paul remains steadfast in his resolve to take on Tyson.
“I’m like, ‘Bro, I just went through all of this. You can’t tell me I can’t beat Mike Tyson,'” Paul explained.
“Bro, he’s old, old.”

Mayweather was 44 years old, and Tyson is 54 at the time of writing, but with age comes experience, surely?
Neither Mayweather or Paul was KO’d in the fight, although Paul took to Instagram story to disarm conspiracy theorists, as reported by USA Today.
“Make no mistake, he got a lot of good punches in,” Paul said. “There’s a couple of photos, I didn’t know my face could make that shape. But never rocked, never blacked out, never obviously got knocked out. He didn’t hold me up. He tried to take me out and he couldn’t. It was great.”
Really, we should have seen Paul’s desire to fight Tyson coming, as he recently posted to his Instagram his quest for a new opponent.
Now that he has a thirst for glory, we just hope Tyson responds either way. Even if it’s to shut him down.
