Years After $100 Million Call-Out, Mike Tyson vs. Jake Paul Being Branded as “Fight of the Year” Candidate in Fantasy Match-Up

Enter the peculiar universe of Mike Tyson, the ‘Baddest Man on the Planet,’ and Jake Paul, the ‘Problem Child’. Tyson, a figure whose ferocity in the boxing ring sent chills down the spine of many opponents, and Paul, a YouTuber-turned-boxer whose meteoric rise continues to confound many.

In this increasingly interconnected digital era, we’ve witnessed YouTubers transitioning into the boxing realm. But are we ready to witness an encounter between an internet sensation and a boxing legend? Does the phrase ‘fantasy match-up’ sound like an insult or a thrilling proposition?

An unexpected social media post from an MMA leader recently turned this fantasy into a tantalizing hypothetical reality. A provocative collage of Tyson and Paul, accompanied by an equally intriguing caption, has started a wave of discussions, debates, and undeniably, some hilariously savage responses. The world of boxing, it seems, is never short of surprises.


Iron Mike vs. YouTube star: A laughter riot or a legit contest?

Injecting an extra dose of intrigue into the hypothetical boxing matchup, an MMA page recently triggered waves of reaction on their Facebook account. A rather unusual collage of Mike Tyson and Jake Paul graced the post, underlined with the audacious claim: “If we had a time machine, this would be the fight of the year candidate… Jake Paul with his height, reach, speed, and awkward style would give Iron Mike all sorts of problems.”

However, fans weren’t holding back in expressing their views.

Alan Ljubic, chuckling at the notion, exclaimed, “You need to see your doctor and have brain exam… hurry up”. He, along with others, was quick to dismiss the idea of Paul causing problems for Tyson.

Meanwhile, Dave Parnham, cheekily commented, “I’ll have some of what you’re smoking, bro…. 🤣🤣🙄”. Jay Wallace, on the other hand, vividly imagined the matchup, stating, “Iron Mike would pummel him and bite both of his ears off”.

This sentiment was echoed by Norbert Csordas, who passionately expressed his disbelief, “If you believe this BS, you’ve never seen Iron Mike fight. There is no way Paul could stay on his feet for a whole round”.


The final blow came from Lewis Wilkes who deemed the proposition a dishonor to Tyson’s legacy. “This is an insult to the great Mike Tyson, Paul wouldn’t last a round,” he said.

Clearly, fans have no doubt about the outcome of such a hypothetical match. The prospect of a Tyson vs. Paul showdown, coupled with Tyson’s surprising openness to fight the Paul brothers for a whopping $100 million, has stirred up a whirlwind of conversation among fans. It might seem like a fantastical plot straight out of a Hollywood movie, but this has ignited lively debate.

Yet, one can’t help but ask: Do we value a battle of legends, a confrontation steeped in experience and honed skills, or do we find intrigue in the unexpected, the audacity of novices challenging the masters?
