Mike Tyson vs Logan Paul: Michael Bisping makes 'flatlining' prediction


UFC Hall of Famer Michael Bisping believes Mike Tyson would ‘absolutely flatline’ Logan Paul in a boxing match despite being nearly 30 years older than the YouTuber.

A fight between the pair is allegedly set to take place in February 2022 after Tyson came out of a 15-year retirement to square off against Roy Jones Jr last November.

The 55-year-old looked sharp on his return to the ring, and Bisping believes the ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ could do some serious damage to YouTuber Logan Paul if this fight goes ahead.

In a video on his YouTube channel, Bisping said: “Logan, he’s tall, he’s long. He’s kind of a big guy; he’s athletic.

“He’s got a great physique. Jake Paul is by far the better boxer I would say. If I had to pick who was better, then I’d say Jake Paul is way better, but Logan, you know, he has some skills. He can certainly punch, and as I say, he’s big, and he’s athletic, and he’ll learn from the fight against Floyd.

“Maybe he will learn to manage his gas tank a little better. But there’s just no way I don’t see Mike Tyson going out there and absolutely flatlining him.”

It’s unclear whether this would be contested as a professional fight or an exhibition event, with Paul’s professional fight record sitting at 0-1 after he lost via split decision to fellow YouTuber KSI in 2019.

Comparatively, Tyson’s final professional win came in 2003, where he won via 49-second first-round knockout against Clifford Etienne to amass a whopping 44 career knockouts.

If knockouts are allowed, Bisping expects Tyson to hand down a lesson to Logan Paul.

“The person that I think Mike Tyson is, going to want to make an example. Do you think that Mike Tyson’s going to step into a boxing ring with a f****** YouTuber and he’s not going to try and make an absolute mockery of him?” the former UFC champion said.



“Do you think he’s not going to try and knock him out and show the world? There’s no way Mike Tyson is going to try and do what Floyd Mayweather did and all hug and smile and say, ‘Yeah, that was great’.

“No way! Mike Tyson’s a nasty b******, and that’s why everyone loved him as a boxer because that’s what people wanna see.”
