Mike Tyson Says He Would Fight Logan Or Jake Paul, Names Which One He Would Prefer

Boxing legend Mike Tyson has revealed he'd be up for fighting Logan or Jake Paul, if the money was right.

The 55-year-old stepped out of retirement and back into the ring for his exhibition fight against Roy Jones Jr. last year and it seems as though he'd be happy to take another fight in the future.

Speaking on an episode of his Hotboxin' YouTube series, Tyson and guest Freddie Gibbs talked about how 'boxing fell off' before reeling off some matches they'd like to see.

Gibbs said: "They just need to put the right fights together, man. You know what I'm sayin'?"

He then went on to criticise the recent rise in 'celebrity' boxing matches, adding: "I'm sick of seeing of all these Jake Paul fights and all that type of s**t."

To which Tyson replied: "Well, that's the money fight.

"Those are the fights that make the money. Those guys have 75 million people watching them."

When asked by Gibbs if he would take a fight against either of the Paul brothers he replied: "Hell yeah. They would, that would be a lot of money."

Tyson went on to say out of the two, he'd rather fight Logan because he managed to last an impressive eight rounds against Floyd Mayweather.

Asked if he reckoned the brothers would take a fight against him, Tyson seemed confident, saying: "$100 million bucks? They'll do anything."

Tyson has previously praised Logan for his performance against Mayweather, telling the YouTuber-turned-boxer he was 'proud of him'.

In a FaceTime conversation following the fight at the Hard Rock Stadium, Tyson was happy to admit he had been wrong when he claimed the YouTuber had no chance against Mayweather.

He said: "You kicked his a**, I was wrong, I was wrong, you kicked a**. You kicked a**, there's no doubt about it, you kicked a**."

Logan, who looked shocked at the praise he was receiving, replied: "I love you Mike."

To which Tyson responded: "I'm proud of you, I'm proud of you. You went eight rounds with the greatest of all time!"

Later in the conversation, Logan said: "He was quick Mike, he was fast."

Tyson replied: "He wasn't that fast, you got him with those punches. I love you man, I love you."
