Mike Tyson sends chilling warning to Jake Paul as explosive new training footage emerges

Mike Tyson sends chilling warning to Jake Paul as explosive new training footage emerges

Tyson has aimed another shot towards Paul before the fight.

Mike Tyson has sent a fresh warning to Jake Paul ahead of their fight in July alongside explosive new training footage.

The 58-year-old has been getting into shape for his return to boxing, having last fought in November 2020 when he took on Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition match.

Both Tyson and Paul have traded verbal barbs since the fight was announced at the beginning of March.

Since then, Tyson has confirmed that the bout will be officially classed an exhibition, though will effectively be fought under professional rules.

'Iron Mike' hasn't fought professionally since his June 2005 defeat to Kevin McBride, which led to his retirement from the sport.

But despite the defeats that occurred later in his career, Tyson never lost his fearsome power, which has been on full show during his early training footage.

Check it out below.

Tyson accompanied the footage with a warning, simply stating: "Can't wait for this to be Jake," proving that his power game is very much going to cause his opponent some serious problems.

'Iron Mike' has already announced that he will be making a major lifestyle change as part of his preparations for the highly-anticipated bout, which will be broadcast live on Netflix from Arlington, Texas on July 20.

Tyson has indicated that he will give up smoking cannabis before the fight, telling media: "I don't know, maybe it has something to do with my tripolar tendencies or something.

"But I don't think I am going to smoke for this fight. I think I am going to be very irritable and nasty."

When asked if he would take his own cannabis-infused sweets beforehand, he said: "Normally I do, but for this fight I think I'm going to go pretty raw.

"I'm 58 and what? I'm getting billions of views from just talking to somebody about fighting."
