American actor, director, and martial artist Michael Jai White credited the Paul brothers for the Francis Ngannou and Tyson Fury fight. White is a highly regarded martial artist in the Hollywood film industry, having starred in several well-known titles. He appeared in Blood and Bone, Never Back Down, and Falcon Rising.


In an interview with Vlad TV, White recently answered several questions about the Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou fight. Subsequently, White stated that this huge crossover event happened because of the Paul brothers. The actor said, “What people wanna see, cutting through the red tape, it is what it is, it’s a spectacle.”  White also mentioned applauding what the Paul brothers have done since day one. The YouTube influencer brothers started the trend of giving the fans the fight they want.

The interviewer asked White about his predictions for the crossover boxing match between Fury and Ngannou in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Subsequently, White remained hesitant to say anything because he liked Ngannou but believed Fury would emerge victorious. White stated that Ngannou can hit hard, but Fury has been boxing his entire life and has an undefeated record.

Furthermore, White believed that Fury had an advantage in terms of reach and skills. Subsequently, White mentioned that Fury has excellent footwork to evade punches like Muhammad Ali did in his prime.

The interviewer said that White and Tyson were about the same age and had the same height and weight. Furthermore, White was asked by the interviewer if he would agree to box against Tyson in an exhibition fight. Subsequently, White stated that he would be willing to fight Mike Tyson, and White perplexed the interviewer by presenting the claim to the public. Furthermore, in the past, White was part of a movie which was about Tyson, but Tyson did not like the movie.

In addition, the interviewer asked him who would win a fight if they fought in their current condition. White confidently said he would beat the current Tyson in an exhibition boxing match. However, this exhibition is highly unlikely, as people like John Fury have also called out Tyson.
