​Paul, 24, improved his professional boxing record to 5-0 after stopping former foe and ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley last weekend

He's been lapping up the acclaim after extending his unbeaten streak, calling out UFC stars and doing a podcast with his brother.

Speaking on IMPAULSIVE, the 'Maverick' heaped praise on his younger sibling - saying people think he's this generation's Tyson and Ali.​

And he's being genuinely serious, with 'The Problem Child' revealing a conversation he had with 'Iron' Mike about his foray into the world of boxing. 

Logan said: "You know what they've been saying? They've been saying this: our great grandparents had Muhammad Ali, our parents had Mike Tyson, and we have Jake Paul."​

Jake added: "When I sat with Mike Tyson on his podcast, bro, he's so smart and wise and he was sitting next to me for like 20 minutes just preaching knowledge.​

"And he goes, 'Bro, you're the GOAT, January 17th people are not to be messed with.' When I told him my birthday, he was like, 'Oh my god.'"

Ali starred in the 1970s, winning/defending the heavyweight world titles in classic bouts against the likes of George Foreman and Joe Frazier. 

Tyson then came onto the scene in the 1980s before making a name for himself in the 1990s, beating Frank Bruno and taking on Evander Holyfield in two legendary bouts. 

And Logan reckons Jake is doing what Ali and Tyson did back then in today's world following his transition from the world of YouTube. 

Is Jake this generation's Ali and Tyson? Let us know what you think.
