Mike Tyson Has ‘High’ Hopes For A Bout With Logan Paul

Don’t rule out Mike Tyson fighting Logan Paul. Heck, even Tyson himself won’t do so.

“Anything is possible,” Tyson said in an interview with Yahoo Finance.

Then Tyson reacted as many people who hear of a Tyson-Paul bout might. He laughed. Perhaps because Tyson is 55 years old. Paul, who first found fame via YouTube, is 26.

“You’re talking to me? About taking on —” Tyson asked as he cut himself off with a hearty chuckle. “Maybe. I’m an old man, you know? I don’t know what I could do now.”

Well, he can at least beat Roy Jones Jr., something Tyson did in an old-timers bout last year. But Paul? That’s a different matter. Again, he’s about 30 years younger than Tyson and has won a few fights already.

Either way, Tyson says he has a lucky charm in his corner — cannabis.

“I should have smoked my whole career,” he said. “I should have smoked when I was fighting because it put me in this different state of mind. I’m very relaxed and the more relaxed you are, the better fighter you are at least in my case.”

And if he decides to fight Paul, it may indeed be because he’s been smoking too much of the funny stuff.

    • Would definitely be entertaining but I tend to agree with you. Although I really don’t think Paul could actually hurt Iron Mike, I’d much rather see him doing cool videos on social media and enjoying his retirement. I watched a funny interview with him on Full Send a few weeks ago. Those guys over there are a riot.
