- Mike Tyson sides with Jake Paul in his upcoming boxing match with Tommy Fury in Saudi Arabia
- “Iron Mike” declared “The Problem Child” as the biggest name in boxing right now
Mike Tyson is one of the many who are excited to see Jake Paul face Tommy Fury inside the ring tomorrow, Feb 26 in Saudi Arabia. The former world champion is banking on “The Problem Child” as he predicted that the fight is gonna end with a nasty KO.
Jake is bigger than the rest
Speaking to Boxing Social, Tyson declared Paul as the biggest name in boxing at present. For “Iron Mike,” the only two persons bigger than the YouTuber right now is WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and multi-division champ Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.
Hence, Tyson is convinced that Paul is the reason everybody is talking about Paul vs. Fury.
“[Paul vs. Fury] It’s very huge. That shows the market power of Jake Paul. He’s just the biggest thing in boxing right now besides the heavyweights. The heavyweights are the only thing bigger than him the heavyweights and probably [Canelo] Alvarez that’s the only thing bigger than him in boxing. None of those other guys are bigger… the lightweights, the welterweights, the middleweights, they’re not bigger than him the light heavyweights, they’re not bigger than him,” Tyson raved.
Someone’s getting knocked out
Tyson was candidly questioned about the match’s outcome and responded by confessing that he has never witnessed Tommy fight. Consequently, he holds the belief that Tommy won’t be able to halt Paul’s progress in any way. However, Tyson is confident that someone will be knocked out during the fight.
“I don’t know, I never saw a [Tommy] Fury fight… I don’t know [but] I don’t think he’s gonna be able to beat Jake Paul because… no one [could] Jake Paul, he’s getting better and better as he fight and I don’t know if they brought him here to lose so we’re gonna find out how does it end… somebody’s getting knocked out I don’t, but somebody’s going down bro, someone’s ‘Oh that has got to go’,” Tyson assessed.
Paul and Fury will finally settle their feud inside the ring tomorrow. As advertised, the pair couldn’t wait to take on each other and had to be separated during their intense faceoff in the press conference.
