The contest will see the veteran heavyweight puncher taking on the much younger, quicker but far less experienced YouTuber turned boxer.
Some are anticipating a close fight between the two men, but some odds have already been released for what is sure to be one of the biggest sporting spectacles of 2022 should it go ahead.
Rumours surrounding the contest began circulating hotly in October 2021, with Tyson himself saying that he was willing to face either Logan or Jake Paul in a boxing ring.
With the popularity of Tyson mixed with the notoriety and spectacle of the Paul Brothers, it is clear that the build to an actual contest between ‘Iron’ Mike and the YouTuber will be major box office for all involved.
Mike Tyson vs Logan Paul Betting Odds?
Online sportsbook MyBookie has Tyson down as the favourite in the anticipated fight at -150. Paul is currently sitting as the underdog at +130 in the boxing contest that is expected to be announced in the coming months.
It is not confirmed what weight class the two men would be entering at, but it would likely be either Heavyweight or Catchweight, despite Tyson being vocally against the concept of a Bridgerweight or Catchweight division and title in the sport.
Bridgerweight is between 200 pounds and 225 pounds, so would likely be a good fit Paul but perhaps not Tyson who would be coming in heavier. The concept is currently only being tried out in ht WBC, with the other associations sticking with 17 divisions overall.
“The size of the man should matter” Tyson stated in an interview with CompuBox TV. “This would mean that all the 200 pounds [fighters] are the heavyweights.
“That’s why heavyweights fighting is better than all the other weight [classes]. A little heavyweight can beat a giant… It’s all about your fighting spirit” Tyson added, noting that the extra weight class essentially isn’t needed.
