The 55-year-old American superstar was widely revered for his knockout ability and ruthless in-ring fighting skills in his legendary career.
However, Tyson's career was marred with controversies both inside the squared circle and outside of it.
The Baddest Man on the Planet made his sensational return to boxing in an exhibition clash with Roy Jones Jr in November 2020, which ended in a draw after eight rounds.
Tyson has now revealed that his son Amir wants to enter the world of boxing and clash with YouTube star Paul.
However, Iron Mike told his son to "chill out" and warned him that he doesn't "want none of that heat" in a powerful message.
Speaking on Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson, he said: "I have my kid, the oldest one, he's 24. He wants to do this so bad.
"I said 'Man, just chill the f**k out.' He wants to fight Logan Paul and those guys. He wants to do that.
"I said, 'Man, just get a job. Get a real estate licence. Just chill out, man. Why can't you take advantage of your lightweight wealthiness? Just chill.'
"You don't want none of that heat. I'm telling you. This drives people to commit suicide, getting humiliated in front of millions of people.
"You gotta be able to take that pressure and heat. Not many people can do it.
"It seems like a lot of people, but the people doing it is such a small per cent. It's probably one per cent."
Paul, 26, clashed with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather in a blockbuster exhibition fight in June at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer went the full eight rounds against Mayweather, with no official winner crowned from the bout.
Paul, who previously had Tyson on his Impaulsive podcast, has since claimed that he could beat Iron Mike in a fight.
However, Tyson has pulled no punches towards the American star by suggesting that he is "stupid enough" to fight Swedish professional boxer Badou Jack.
