Boxing legend Mike Tyson will make his sensational return to the squared circle against YouTuber Logan Paul, according to stunning reports.

The Baddest Man on the Planet clashed with fellow boxing legend Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition super-fight in November 2020.

Tyson and Jones went the full distance in their eight-round boxing affair, which ended in a split draw at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Paul, meanwhile, defied the odds and went the full distance against boxing legend Floyd Mayweather in their blockbuster exhibition clash back in June.

YouTuber Daniel Keem, better known as Keemstar, now claims that Tyson and Paul will collide in February 2022.

The 39­-year-old American, who hosts the popular internet news show DramaAlert, tweeted: “Logan Paul vs Mike Tyson, Feb 2022. Sources tell DramaAlert.”

Tyson, 55, has previously featured on Paul’s Impaulsive podcast and praised both the YouTuber-turned-boxer and Jake Paul.

Iron Mike confirmed his intention of returning to the ring amid speculation linking him with a fight with either Jake or Logan.

“I am going to have a return fight in February and we are pretty sceptical about the opponent, but it will be a really stimulating opponent,” he told The Sun.

Tyson previously teased that he could face fierce rival Lennox Lewis in an exhibition fight, while Paul has remained hush-hush on the name of his next opponent.

Paul hasn’t ruled out a potential fight with the former undisputed world heavyweight champ and even said that he fancied his chances against Tyson in the ring.

“I have to; this is the coolest thing on the planet,” he said.

“You think about the Roman Colosseum when you watch the gladiators fight to the death.

“Look around. My brother filled this arena up in Cleveland, Ohio, his home city. It's the coolest thing anyone could ever ask for.

“I've said it before, I'll say it again: fighters [are] modern-day gladiators. There is no more dangerous athlete.

“When the fighter walks in the room, everyone feels it. He's got a presence. And it's cool, I love it. I love the sport, I love entertaining.”
