Logan Paul warns Mike Tyson he's got 'the reflexes of a cat'

Logan Paul has warned Mike Tyson he will be able to take his biggest punches as he's 'got the reflexes of a cat'.

The YouTube star managed to hang on against Floyd Mayweather to avoid getting knocked out in an exhibition match in Miami in June - seven months after Tyson, 55, also went the full eight rounds with Roy Jones Jr, 52. 

Now Tyson has confirmed he has held talks with Paul about taking part in another lucrative contest despite being retired and having not fought officially since he lost to Kevin McBride in 2005 in Washington.

And Paul is confident he can hand Tyson his sixth stoppage loss if the pair meet in the ring in the first part of next year. The fight will reportedly take place in February 2022 at a location to be determined

Speaking to FightHype, the 26-year-old said: "I love Mike like I can't fake it but I think I can beat Mike.

"It would be a friendly competition under the premise of like a confident young new kid on the block fighting an older veteran I guess but I already did it with Floyd like I beat Floyd.

"Bro, I'm telling you, I would f------ beat Mike Tyson. If people would watch that fight, then yeah, I would do it."

Asked if he can take a punch from 'The Baddest Man on the Planet', he nodded, saying: "Yeah of course, of course. He's too old dude, he's too old.

"Bro, I've got the reflexes of a cat like a young, quick feline, brother.

"I'm not super into dying. I try to avoid that at all costs."

'FATHER TIME TAKES A TOLL ON EVERYONE'

Logan is thirty years younger than Tyson and the Ohio native, a former college wrestler, believes his youthful athleticism would be too much for the former undisputed heavyweight world champion. 

He added: "I don't give a f---. He's too old, he's too old.

"Like we saw with Floyd, dude, there's no f------ reason that I should have been able to last... Not just last, Floyd's on my highlight reel!

"There's no reason why that shouldn't be possible. He's aging, Father Time takes a toll on everyone and Tyson's what, 56? What happens? I go in there and knock him out."
