Jake Paul calls out his own brother Logan's 'complete lie' over Mike Tyson fight

Jake Paul calls out his own brother Logan's 'complete lie' over Mike Tyson fight

Jake Paul has called out his own brother.

Jake Paul has accused his brother Logan of "lying" about his upcoming fight against Mike Tyson.

YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul has announced that he will take on legendary heavyweight boxer Tyson in a huge event at the AT&T Stadium in Texas on July 20.

There has been plenty of criticism of Paul, 27, and his decision to fight Tyson, largely because the boxing icon will be 31 years his senior come fight night.

Iron Mike retired from professional boxing in 2005, and last fought in 2020 when he drew with Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition match.

Paul's brother, Logan, has also made a name for himself in the world of combat sports after rising to fame as a YouTuber.

The 28-year-old fought Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition match in 2021, and earlier this week claimed that he turned down the chance to fight Tyson.

"I said no to fighting Mike Tyson," he said on his Impaulsive podcast.

"I was offered it, but not on Netflix and not for a big a** bag.

"I've been asked, 'Do you think you could beat Mike Tyson?' My answer is yes. I just think he's too old, it's crazy. He's senile."

Now Jake Paul has hit back at his brother's claim, giving a completely different version of events.

'It is not true. We are the ones that brought the deal to Mike Tyson, so he was never in the market to offer fights for others to turn down" he said.

"So yes, it's weird to go online an lie.

"My team struck a deal with Netflix, and then went to other fighters to get them involved.

"It started with Tommy Fury but he wanted more money. Then we went to Mike Tyson, and after months of talking we got him to fight.

"Mike Tyson wasn't offering people deals, I don't know why he is saying that. We were the ones offering the deal.

Why is my own brother trying to make me look like the second option for Tyson? That's a complete lie."
