Things got real ugly at the first press conference between Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather when Jake Paul stole Mayweather’s hat. ‘The Problem Child’ was soon caught by Mayweather’s entourage and received a bad beating, leaving him with a black eye.
If there are a few persons who have shown their support towards the Paul Brothers venturing into boxing, one of them is certainly Mike Tyson. ‘Iron’ Mike has always welcomed both the YouTubers taking up boxing as a profession.
TMZ Sports recently caught up with the former heavyweight champ on the streets and asked Mike how a fight between Jake Paul and Floyd Mayweather would pan out. Tyson then revealed that both the brothers don’t stand a chance to beat Mr Money. That didn’t however change the love Tyson had for the Paul brothers.
‘I love those guys’ – Mike Tyson on the Paul brothers
This is how the small conversation between Tyson and the TMZ Sports’ interviewer went:
Interviewer : Do you think Jake Paul can win?
Tyson : “No. He’s gonna get beat up pretty bad.”
Interviewer : You think either of the Paul brothers could take Mayweather, Jake or Logan?
Tyson : [Gestures no]
Interviewer : Would you ever consider fighting Jake Paul? Would you take the fight?
Tyson : “I like those guys, man!”
Interviewer : If they offered the fight, would you take it?
Tyson : “No, I love those guys man!” [h/t FirstSportz]
Logan Paul is scheduled to face Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition boxing bout on the 6th of June, next month. And already, Jake Paul has fanned the flames with his ‘Gotcha Hat’ incident at the press conference. There will certainly be more bad blood towards the beginning of the fight week. Fingers crossed!
