Mike Tyson Reacts to $50 Million Dollar Jake Paul Fight Rumors

Rumors have been swirling about a potential Jake Paul Mike Tyson super fight.

Reports this week surfaced claiming the fight was on the verge of actually happening.

Mike Tyson has suggested he doesn’t have a clue where these rumors of finalizing a Jake Paul bout have come from.

The Sun stated their “source” revealed Tyson and Paul made a “verbal deal” for a $50 million fight.

“A verbal deal has been struck to get it on, but like all forms of sports business, now it’s all about the contracts and money split. Mike is looking for a certain figure to get into the ring with a profit share guarantee,” the source reportedly said. “Jake obviously has that on his mind but is keen to show the world that stepping into the ring with a man once called, ‘the baddest man on the planet,’ takes his boxing career to the next level.”

Tyson saw the news hit Twitter and retweeted The Sun with an update.

“This is new to me. I saw Jake in St. Barths and he never mentioned it,” wrote the boxing icon.

Hard to imagine anyone turning down an opportunity to make a quick $50 million,  but Tyson probably deserves more than that if he’s going to step into the ring.

Watching Tyson knock out Paul would be amazing, I’d be willing to pay up to a few hundred dollars on PPV.
