“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.”

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.
