Iron Mike, who is 30 years older than Paul, is also up for the challenge, stating he would like to break the PPV record, believing Paul has a higher value than many boxing champions.
Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather currently hold the record for most PPV buys with 4.6 million for their fight in 2015.
In his prime, Tyson was among boxing’s greatest fighters, and Mike is the man Paul dreams of facing next.
In Paul’s view, they could top that achievement, and he knows he can beat Tyson.
Paul told Boxing Social about a potential match against Tyson:
“Ideally, for sure, that’s legendary,” Jake said. “As Mike Tyson said on the Joe Rogan podcast, it would be one of the biggest pay-per-views of all time. Together when we were on the same card, we sold almost two million pay-per-views (PPV). It could be three million pay-per-views (PPV), four million pay-per-views (PPV). Mike Tyson like you said on the podcast, if you’re watching this, let’s make the fight happen. I’m ready and I think I would win, Mike thinks he would win, so let’s do it.”
Despite being supposed to fight Tommy Fury in December before the Brit pulled out, Paul prefers Tyson over the nemesis.
In contrast, he suggested Tyson Fury and his father, John, are better at hyping up fights than Tommy Fury.

A few weeks back, Tyson sat down with popular podcast host Joe Rogan, with whom he discussed his potential match with social media personality in an episode of his podcast Hotboxin with Mike Tyson.
“Let’s do it Jakey, God wouldn’t that be cool?”
He further asserted that his fight will surpass Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao’s record 4.6 million pay-per-view (PPV) sales.
As of now, both parties are eager to fight. There is no doubt that Tyson has the charisma to pull in large crowds.
