Logan Paul insists he could ‘easily’ beat Mike Tyson after surviving eight round with Mayweather

‘You can’t tell me I can’t beat Mike Tyson’: Logan Paul eyes up ANOTHER American boxing icon after surviving eight round exhibition with Floyd Mayweather… and YouTuber claims Iron Mike’s age, 54, gives him the advantage.

Logan Paul has hinted that Mike Tyson could be his next boxing target after the YouTuber survived eight rounds with Floyd Mayweather.

The streaming star, who had only fought once before the fight with the American boxing icon, was not put down by Mayweather during their exhibition bout on June 6 in a surprise outcome for the 26-year-old.

Paul is now likely to continue his boxing career and claims age would be on his side if he took on Iron Mike, who turns 55 at the end of this month.

The YouTuber told his Impaulsive podcast: ‘Someone mentioned Mike Tyson. My lawyer mentioned it and he’s like, “Nah, Tyson will rip your head off, you don’t stand a chance.”

I’m like, “I just went through all this.” You can’t tell me I can’t beat Mike Tyson. He’s old, old.’

Tyson, like Mayweather, recently returned to the ring for a post-retirement exhibition fight with Roy Jones Jr, with the November 2020 fight ending in a draw.

Mayweather, who retired from boxing in 2017 with a perfect 50-0 record, was surprisingly unable to stop Paul at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.

The YouTuber was criticised for hugging onto Mayweather too much during the exhibition fight, which generated more than one million pay-per-view purchases which rivalled Canelo Alvarez’s 2018 rematch with Gennady Golovkin.

Paul’s only other career fight was a 2019 loss to fellow YouTuber KSI from Great Britain, with the British streaming star winning via a split decision in Los Angeles.

Mayweather was also condemned for both his decision to take the fight on and his performance on the night, with Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn questioning whether the ‘Money’s’ performance is good for the sport.

Speaking on the DAZN Boxing Show, Hearn said: ‘This never felt comfortable for me, the person this looked worse on than anybody, and he probably doesn’t care, is Floyd Mayweather.

He looked quite terrible. If you’re a young fan, you see Floyd Mayweather last night you go, “He was the best ever?”

‘I know that Logan Paul was hugging around, but I don’t know, I always said from the outside it was a bad look for the sport.’
