While the YouTuber turned boxer fancies his chances against McGregor, boxing legend Tyson isn't buying it.
Speaking on Hotboxin, Paul said: "I called out Conor McGregor while the whole entire world was watching. He's fighting a guy, Dustin Poirier, who's 5'9", 155 lbs, who he TKOed already in one round. He's fighting him again. Why?"
'Iron Mike' let out a wry smile and replied: "You know Conor's not afraid of you, right?"

Paul then hit back with: "I don't give a s**t if he's afraid of me. You don't have to be afraid of someone to get your ass beat."
Tyson continued to smirk and said: "Sure."
Paul continued: "There's a $50 million offer, proof of funds waiting in a bank account for him."
McGregor is yet to officially respond to the 25-year-old but he did allude to him as a "confused little kid" prior Saturday's fight with Poirier.
"You know, that is what it is," he told BT Sport.
"We'll see what happens, he seems like a confused little kid to me, to be honest.
"He's willing to get in there, I don't know what'll happen, it's not on the radar at the minute with the young lad.
"I have a teammate [Dylan Moran] - him and Dylan have been back-and-forth, so you never know."
That response came not long after Paul called out McGregor again, this time using an airplane and a banner.
In video posted on social media, Paul can be seen sitting on a beach in Miami while a small airplane flies above him carrying a banner which reads: "Conor McGregor is Scared of Jake Paul."
"Conor, ay, ay, Conor - I got $10,000 for you cash, cash baby," he joked.
"You had $50 million!"
