Mike Tyson and Jake Paul ‘agree’ £36m fight despite age gap of three decades

Mike Tyson and Jake Paul are said to have reached an agreement over a boxing bout worth in the region of £36million despite the gap in age and experience between the two friends.

The former heavyweight champion of the world, 55, who returned to the exhibition circuit in 2020, could meet the former YouTuber, 25, early this year.

The pair, who have been pictured together in the past, had both been keen to get back into the ring this year – but not many expected it to be against each other.

Jake recently beat Tyron Woodley in their rematch following Tommy Fury’s illness, and had been linked with Conor McGregor and Jorge Masvidal.

The Sun quotes a source as saying: “Mike and Jake are on board for an exhibition bout in Las Vegas.

“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.””

Adding that the pair hope that the bout would generate as much as £36million as a PPV event.

The pair recently spent time together while recording for Tyson’s podcast, with Jake saying that the legendary boxer called him the greatest of all time.

“”When I sat with Mike Tyson on his podcast, bro, he’s so smart and wise and he was sitting next to me for like 20 minutes just preaching knowledge,” Jake recalled back in December.

Jake continued: “And he goes, ‘Bro, you’re the GOAT, January 17th people are not to be messed with.’ When I told him my birthday, he was like, ‘Oh my god.'””

Iron Mike has also been asked about a potential bout, and even revealed that he and his family are big fans of the former Disney star.

He said on the Full Send podcast: “My family love Jake Paul.

Adding when asked if he could knock him out: “So f****** easy. Yeah, but I would never. I’d be against my own f***** family. They love this little white motherf*****. You know what I mean?

“He got balls. He’s got f****** balls.”
