Mike Tyson Keeps It Real When Asked How Jake Paul Would Fare Against Floyd Mayweather

Mike Tyson kept it real when asked how Jake Paul would fare against Floyd Mayweather in a fight - saying he'd get beat up "pretty bad".

Unlike a lot of people in the boxing community, 'Iron' Mike has sang the praises of Jake's boxing venture - claiming he has "saved boxing".

But the 54-year-old does NOT like the YouTuber's chances if he were to fight 'Money' inside the squared circle.

Asked by TMZ Sports if he could beat the former pound-for-pound boxing king, Tyson replied: "No. He's gonna get beat up pretty bad."

So, he's not even giving the 24-year-old a puncher's chance having knocked out his last two opponents in emphatic fashion.

Paul is fresh off a one-round demolition of Ben Askren last month as he eyes his next opponent, with the likes of Tommy Fury and Kamaru Usman called out.

Mayweather's wild brawl with Jake angered former rival Conor McGregor who slammed his actions during the press conference in Miami.

On social media, he wrote: "The kid curled up, didn't fight back once, and Floyd is still running around acting the tough guy.

"The kid actually just pulled this shambles of a situation Floyd is in out of the drain for him. He should thank him.

"It's embarrassing! Pro to pro it's embarrassing.

"He will not scratch 10m for this fight and he knows it. It was cancelled once already. The world is watching this on Twitter. He'd fight a half decent pro and command 20m upwards, yet its this sh*t.

"Whatever way you spin this, it's sad. Fight someone for real, on your record, or f**k off mate. Slap head!"

Of course, before Mayweather potentially gets his hands on Jake, he has to deal with older brother Logan in an exhibition bout on June 6.
