Mike Tyson Destroys Logan Paul With Floyd Mayweather Prediction

Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul will face eachother in the ring this February, in what could be one of the biggest mismatches ever seen in boxing.

The YouTuber started off the craze of influencer boxing with his bout against KSI in 2018, and he will now be th first to see it come into contact with elite professional boxing.

The "super exhibition" is sure to draw in viewers, but it is unknown whether it will feature a competitive fight - with 50-0 all time great Mayweather favoured by many to run away with it.

Mike Tyson is the latest to weigh in, and might know more than some having had Logan Paul's brother Jake on the undercard of his recent bout with Roy Jones Jr.

After the fight he thanked YouTubers for bringing some extra popularity to boxing, saying: "Listen, my ego says so many things, but my reality is they help boxing so much," Tyson explained.

"Boxing owes these guys. They owe these YouTube boxers some kind of respect. They should give them some belts because these guys make boxing alive.

"Boxing was pretty much a dying sport. UFC was kicking our butts, and now we got these YouTube boxers boxing with 25 million views. Boxing's back. Thanks to the YouTube boxers."

However, this doesn't mean that he thinks they can beat their full time counterparts. Speaking on Logan Paul's podcast, "imPaulsive", he was asked by co-host Mike Maljak for his take on the upcoming fight between Paul and Mayweather.

He answered: "Floyd's gonna beat his f**kin' a**."

"But it's gonna be good!" he continued. "It's gonna be good, he's gonna fight back though!"
