Mike Tyson, Jake Paul

Mike Tyson Says Jake Paul Will Be ‘Greatly Mistaken’ About Trying To Hurt Him

The fight is scheduled for July 20 and will take place at the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas

Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson is gearing up to fight Jake Paul this summer, and appeared on Fox News to discuss what will take place in the boxing ring when he takes on the YouTube star.

Tyson explained that although it was being labeled a “fight,” it’s more of an exhibition match, so we will not see the type of fight we may be accustomed to seeing him participate in.

“This is called an exhibition,” Tyson said. “But if you look up exhibition, you will not see any of the laws that we are fighting under. This is a fight. I don’t think he’s faster than me, I’ve seen a YouTube of him at 16, doing weird dances, that’s not the guy I’m going to be fighting. This guy’s gonna come, he’s gonna try to hurt me, which I’m accustomed to, and he’s gonna be greatly mistaken.”

Tyson did admit that he is nervous now, even “scared to death,” but that those feelings will subside as the fight date approaches.

“Right now, I’m scared to death, but as the fight gets closer, the less nervous I become because this is reality, and in reality, I’m invincible.”

Even though Tyson is stepping into the ring with Paul, he said he doesn’t dislike the guy.

“No. I do not have no grudges against him he’s beautiful, and no, it’s not from that perspective.”

The fight is scheduled to stream live on Netflix on July 20. The streaming platform is promoting the contest with Most Valuable Promotions (MVP). The 57-year-old Tyson and the 27-year-old Paul will duke it out at the Dallas Cowboys’ home stadium, AT&T Stadium, in Arlington, Texas, which has a capacity of 80,000.

Tyson has a record of 50 wins and 6 losses. Paul, who calls himself “The Problem Child,” has a record of 9-1.
