Jake Paul Channels Inner Mike Tyson By Threatening To 'Eat' Tyron Woodley

We've seen Jake Paul compare himself to Mike Tyson, well now he's actually copying him too.

Channeled his inner Iron Mike, the trash-talking YouTuber has threatened to 'eat' Tyron Woodley when the two come face-to-face in the ring over the weekend.

Speaking to reporters on ShowTime, Paul said: "I might eat this man. I might eat this man on television."

Can't believe we're admitting this, but the quote gave off serious Tyson vibes from the time he claimed he was going to eat Lennox Lewis' children in one of the most iconic yet frightening interviews of all-time.

I know, don't hate us for thinking that.

Back in 2000, Tyson and Lewis were at the height of their boxing powers and their heated rivalry was more palpable than ever.

It seemed only a matter of time before the two legendary heavyweights were due to lock horns.

But as if their grudge match didn't need any more hyping up, Tyson decided to up the stakes even more by delivering a truly scary call-out after defeating Lou Savarese in dominant fashion.

Speaking during his post-bout interview, Tyson looked down the barrel of the camera and said: "I'm the best ever. I'm the most brutal and vicious, and most ruthless champion there's ever been. There's no one can stop me. Lennox is a conqueror? No, I'm Alexander, he's no Alexander. I'm the best ever. There's never been anybody as ruthless. I'm Sonny Liston, I'm Jack Dempsey. There's no one like me. I'm from their cloth. There's no one that can match me. My style is impetuous, my defence is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious. I want your heart. I want to eat his children. Praise be to Allah.

The rant has stood the test of time and is still considered one of greatest and intimidating call-outs in the history of sport.

Jake doesn't quite have the same demeanour about him, although he'd probably disagree.

The 24-year-old recently went one step further and actually compared himself to the 'Baddest Man on the Planet'.

"I am on a trajectory to become the biggest prizefighter in the world," Paul told The Last Stand Podcast.

"For the kids, I look like Mike Tyson. Your grandpa had Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson, your dad had Floyd Mayweather, this generation has Jake Paul. So if they want to see a highlight reel knockout, they want to be a part of the viral conversation, so far that is what I have delivered. I put on a show and I do things different."
