Mike Tyson is one of the greatest boxing legends of all time. The legend is known for his eclectic peekaboo style of fighting, in which he bobbed and weaved out of his opponents’ punches in the easiest of manners. Tyson has knocked out many of his opponents in the 80s and 90s, and established himself as a celebrity star in the 2000’s and 2010’s.

Tyson showed the world last year that he still had his chops as he faced Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition bout. Even at 55, Tyson showed everyone that he maintained his speed and strength to a great degree. The former world champion is still considering a fight with Logan Paul, of all people.

The 55-year old is all for this odd match-up and pushed for it by taking to TikTok. He is seen pulling off some heavy punches, and he’s both ferocious and fast. Logan Paul has to be feeling some intimidation, as Tyson is ready to come at him fast and hard.

Mike Tyson is close to 60, and he still has the ability to get in ring with someone less than half of his age. Tyson has had nothing but good things to say about celebrity bouts, however. As the trend goes, many people from the professional fighting world hate them, but it seems Tyson would like to give one a go himself to remove the stigma.

Logan Paul has fought off people such as former MMA fighter Ben Askren and boxing legend Floyd ‘The Money’ Mayweather. With a potential match-up against Mike Tyson, it would be fitting for Paul’s record. Tyson would have a lot to prove, and only time will tell if this match will even happen.
