The Baddest Man on the Planet retired from boxing in 2005 and took part but still trains actively and is open to taking part in exhibition fights.
Tyson fought Roy Jones Jr. at the Staples Center last year with the bout finishing in a draw. He was linked to fighting Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield but now, it looks like he will fight Paul.
This is according to Daniel Keem, who is the host of the famed news show DramaAlert. His tweet read: “Logan Paul vs Mike Tyson, Feb 2022, sources tell DramaAlert.”
Earlier, Tyson told The Sun that he would fight in February but did not disclose the name of his opponent. “I am going to have a return fight in February and we are pretty skeptical about the opponent, but it will be a really stimulating opponent”, said the 55-year-old.
Paul has so far had 1 bout as a professional, losing to KSI via unanimous decision in 2019. He fought Floyd Mayweather in an 8-round exhibition fight in June that finished in a draw, although the latter was by far the better of the two despite not giving his best.
Celebrity boxing fights are very common these days and there’s no doubt we will see a lot more of those in the future. The thought of a fight between Tyson and Paul just doesn’t seem right and many fans would find this baffling.
However, if it does take place and there is a winner, then it will be Iron Mike despite being 55 years old. While Paul is young, Tyson has the experience and looks in pretty amazing shape for his age.
Nonetheless, fans will be thrilled to see The Baddest Man on the Planet back in the ring.
