KSI has brutal reaction after hearing that Mike Tyson vs Jake Paul fight is confirmed

KSI has brutal reaction after hearing that Mike Tyson vs Jake Paul fight is confirmed

KSI has reacted to the shock fight announcement.

KSI gave a brutal reaction after hearing that Mike Tyson will fight Jake Paul in a stunning exhibition match in July.

Tyson, who is now 57 years of age, will compete in his first fight since taking on historic rival Roy Jones Jr in an eight-round exhibition in November 2020.

His fight against Paul, which was announced without any prior speculation on Thursday afternoon, will take place on Saturday, July 20 in Arlington, Texas.

Officials told ESPN that the bout will be the main event of a card that will air on Netflix - as part of the first boxing event ever broadcast live by the streaming giants.

You can watch the trailer for the fight below.

Paul will enter the fight off the back of a first-round knockout win over fellow professional boxer Ryan Bourland in Puerto Rico on March 2.

That extended his professional boxing record to 9-1, with his only defeat arriving courtesy of a split decision loss to Tommy Fury in February 2023.

And while his long-time rival Fury has yet to react to the news of the Tyson vs Paul fight, KSI has - and it's safe to say he isn't exactly relishing the prospect of watching the bout.

Taking to Twitter, he simply stated: "50+ years old. No-one wanted this... So sad to see man..."

After knocking out Andre August in December 2023, Paul took aim at KSI and accused him of 'chasing views' instead of success in boxing.

He said (quotes via Daily Mail): "I don't know, I don't care [if a fight vs KSI will happen].

"It's just two different things. He's chasing views as a 30-year-old man, and I'm chasing legacy and belts."

KSI and Paul were originally due to face off in August 2023, but KSI's management claimed that Paul's team shunned a fight in favour of taking on UFC star Nate Diaz instead. Paul won that fight via unanimous decision.
