Mike Tyson is one of the greatest boxers of all time. Mike Tyson has been making a comeback in the sport for the past two years. Jake Paul’s list of dream fights include Mike Tyson and that could happen.
Tyson and Jake Paul are reportedly closer to signing a fight deal. Tyson has been looking for additional chances in the ring since his bout with Roy Jones Jr. There have been reports that he will face either Jake Paul or Logan Paul.
For many, these rumors were just untrue. Especially given the age difference involved. According to a source close to Tyson who spoke to The Sun in the UK, the battle is far closer than many realize.
According to the source, a verbal agreement has been reached with Jake Paul, and the only thing left to hash out is the revenue split.
“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. Jake obviously has that on his mind but is keen to show the world that stepping into the ring with a man once called, ‘the baddest man on the planet,’ takes his boxing career to the next level.”
For the time being, the bout will be treated as an exhibition, which means no knockouts are likely to be permitted. In terms of how much money is projected to be made, it’s possible that they’ll make more than $1 million. For further updates stay tuned to Thirsty
