Mike Tyson is certainly one of the most legendary boxers in the history of professional boxing. Tyson is known for his insane power and intimidating stature that has sown fear in the hearts of his opponents. It seems fans don’t want his return match to happen.
As reported earlier, Mike Tyson is set to make his return to the boxing ring and his opponent would be Logan Paul. It was also reported that the match would take place in February next year.
To no surprise, the internet had a meltdown over the possible boxing match between the two. However, it was then said that the boxing match won’t happen after all. Despite that the rumors spread like wildfire and it seems many people don’t want the match to happen at all.
While speaking with True Geordie, boxing purist Eddie Hearn talked about the fight. He then explained why the match should never happen while using Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather as an example.
“I prefer that to Floyd, and Logan is called absolutely a load of bollocks. I thought what, you got a pound for pound great again to blow the, I mean, you know not calm, quiet but like it was it was horrible, horrible to watch.
Tyson and it (Logan Paul) shouldn’t happen, but at least like I would at least want to find out what happened in that fight. I hold my hands up.”
Mike Tyson had previously stated that he would square off against Logan Paul for $100 million. Now it seems the highly-anticipated boxing match is unlikely to even happen. This is sure to disappoint fans in a big way as they were interested in seeing the two boxers duke it out.
