Mike Tyson sees YouTubers getting into boxing as a thing to stay and wants to profit from it.

The sport of boxing has had several excellent fights in 2022, but boxing legend ‘Iron’ Mike sees the rise of YouTubers boxing as something he wants to establish.

On a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel, Tyson revealed he wants to create a YouTube boxing league

“I am going to create a YouTube championship with all these YouTubers and plus myself and we will all fight each other,” Tyson said. “There is a big possibility I might become the YouTube champion.”

While sports fans like myself continue to trash YouTubers boxing anytime I get an opportunity, Tyson says it is a changing of the guard in boxing, and he is all for it.

“No, no, this is what gets guys of age upset, because the changing of the guard is hard to understand, they don’t want to understand. “That’s just what it is, it’s the changing of the guard, and these TikTok guys are part of it,’ Tyson said on his podcast. “You understand me, right? They’re a part of it…Just imagine this, ten years from now; I want to have all the YouTube boxers have a tournament and find out who will be the champion of the world, of that world. But that’s what they do, they have another belt, it’ll be whatever belt they want it to be, and then they put that up against the boxing belt. It’s all hype, hype sells fights, fights don’t sell fights, hype sells fights.” h/t The Mirror

Tyson might have his first YouTuber opponent, however. As a heavily rumored fight between Tyson and Jake Paul has been swirling. Tyson says he is down to fight Paul because he has earned it, but it has to happen this year.
