Jake Paul makes public offer to first celebrity to be ringside for Mike Tyson fight

Jake Paul makes public offer to first celebrity to be ringside for Mike Tyson fight

Jake Paul is calling for a huge name to be ringside for his fight with Mike Tyson in July.

Jake Paul wants the biggest names to be present for his upcoming superfight with Mike Tyson.

The 9-1 boxer is taking on the Baddest Man on the Planet live on Netflix at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on July 20.

Paul returns to the ring for his biggest fight to date following on from an easy win for Ryan Bourland in Puerto Rico last month.

Meanwhile Tyson, the youngest heavyweight champion in history, heads back into the squared circle for the first time since an exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr in 2020.

With a huge age gap, the Paul-Tyson fight is slated to take place as an exhibition - though Paul is claiming both he and Iron Mike are trying to make it a professional encounter.

Reports of larger gloves and headguards being used were branded "fake news" by Paul.

And after coining Donald Trump's phrase, Paul invited the former United States president to the bout.

Paul said to Fox News: “It’s an all-out war. And Trump, if you are watching this, this is an invite.

"I know you used to promote Tyson, so I’d love to have you at the fight. Vivek came to my other fight. And, of course, the silver fox, Barron Trump. So, Donny, pull up, we’ve got tickets for you."

Trump once bid $11 million to host Tyson's fight against Michael Spinks at the Atlantic City Convention Hall, opposite the own Trump Plaza in New Jersey, back in 1988.

The two became friends and Tyson endorsed Trump during his successful 2016 presidential election.

However, Tim O'Brien, the author of the book TrumpNation, claims Tyson once confronted Trump over an alleged affair with his wife at the time, Robin Givens.

Tyson reportedly asked the former US president: "Could I ask you, are you f***ing my wife?"

After the exchange, Trump is quoted as saying: "Now, if I froze, I'm dead... you would have zero chance. Here's the heavyweight champion of the world, and he's a solid piece of fu**ing armour."

Trump is a regular at UFC events, having been invited by president Dana White.
