Mike Tyson's Take On Why Boxers 'Want To Kill' Jake & Logan Paul Is The Realest Yet
The two brothers started their careers on YouTube and have since turned their hands to boxing in a controversial career move.
Many have voiced their distain at the duo but Tyson, who saw Jake fight on the undercard of his return vs Roy Jones Jr, has discussed just what makes the pair box-office draws.
'Iron Mike' begun per CinemaBlend: "These guys make boxing so awesome. The boxers, the real champions, they don't have that many views.
"They'll be happy if they have a million views. These guys are 80 million views. I was like, 'God damn, man. How do you do that?'
"That's why everybody wants to kill them, because they see this little white guy, blonde hair, blue eyes, 'getting all the f**king money, talking all this s**t.
"Everybody wants to kill them. I get envious when I see these guys, I'm like, 'What the f**k are they doing?'
"That's why you want to kick his ass because you get envious of them, it's easy to hate these guys."
Logan is scheduled to fight Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout next month, with Jake managing to steal the headlines by starting a brawl at last week's press conference.
It's that kind of publicity that Tyson believes superstars such as Mayweather will crave to sell their fights.
The 54-year-old continued: "Listen, Floyd's a better fighter than all of those guys right now.
"Floyd right now, even though he's 40-something, he's still better than all the fighters now and he's still fighting a YouTuber.
"And making more money than the champions are making."
Asked by TMZ Sports if he could beat the former pound-for-pound boxing king, Tyson replied: "No. He's gonna get beat up pretty bad."
He continues to goad the entire fight game, including UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman as well as Conor McGregor.
