The Rock makes his feelings clear on Jake Paul vs Mike Tyson fight with 'GOAT' claim

The Rock makes his feelings clear on Jake Paul vs Mike Tyson fight with 'GOAT' claim

The Rock has his say on Jake Paul fighting Mike Tyson.

The Rock has made his feelings clear on the upcoming fight between Jake Paul and Mike Tyson.

Paul will welcome Tyson back to the ring when they clash on July 20 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, in an exhibition bout that will be aired on Netflix.

The card has recently been strengthened following the addition of a world championship rematch, which will be the co-main event to Paul vs. Tyson.

The showdown pitting the 27-year-old against the 57-year-old has divided opinion, with the former world heavyweight champion hitting out at his 'jealous' critics slamming his return.

But one person who can't wait to watch the action unfold is The Rock, who is looking forward to Paul vs, Tyson.

He took to social media to express his interest in the controversial contest.

And, in doing so, the WWE superstar, who returned to action at WrestleMania 40 earlier this month, hailed Tyson as the GOAT.

The Rock shared a picture of himself shaking hands with Paul at WrestleMania 40, accompanied with the caption: "Good to finally meet you brother at WrestleMania."

He added: "Looking forward to watching your fight with the GOAT.

"As we briefly chatted, you wouldn't want it any other way. Can't wait to watch."

Paul was in attendance for WrestleMania 40 to support his brother Logan, who defended his WWE US title against Randy Orton and Kevin Owens in a triple threat match - with the help of IShowSpeed.

'The Problem Child' will look to replicate his brother's success when he faces Tyson in the summer.

He's on a three-fight winning streak since losing the first fight of his professional career to Tommy Fury last year.

The YouTuber-turned-fighter boasts wins over former UFC star Nate Diaz as well as Andre August and Ryan Bourland, who was stopped last month.
