    I think this is just a money grab, and Tyson will probably not take the match seriously (plus he's old now).

    If this was a real fight, and Mike wasn't a changed man, he'd annihilate Jake Paul.

    Mike is almost 60. He doesn't stand a chance against a 28 year old. He would have destroyed him 20 years ago, but not now.

    I'd say yeah for most people but i remember seeing some footage of him practicing, and i dont think anyone would want to take a punch from him even at 60... but that said it probably is a money grab but boy howdy do i wanna see jake paul get fuckin rocked one of these days....

    I'd love to see him get knocked the fuck out by an older Mike Tyson

    Honestly ill take anyone at this point just to make him shut the fuck up, wish it'd make him irrelevant too but its probably not gonna do either hah. Are there odds out on the fight yet?

    I will not be at all surprised to see Mike knock his ass out.

    I would be very surprised to see that. I would love it if it happens, but I'm quite certain it won't.

    Foreman won a heavyweight championship at 48... I don't think Jake Paul is even in the same league as Tyson (if Tyson is still working out). I think Tyson on his death bed might beat Paul.

    Maybe just wishful thinking... But Tyson was still hitting HARD and moving FAST last year when I saw a training video.

    Again. Maybe it's just wishful thinking and I'm not giving Paul enough respect...

    I've seen Paul fight a couple of times, he covers up and tries to use his length. I'm not sure how he's going to handle body shots from even an old man Tyson.

    It's wishful thinking. Trust me. And this thing is nothing but a money grab anyway.

    All of both Pauls' fights have been carefully staged money grabs. Tyson is just crazy enough not to follow the script, lol.

    Meh, Tyson followed the script pretty well in that stupid roy Jones fight. Tap someone on the head for a few rounds, make some money. Don't do anything stupid and lose money. He could have lit Jones up if he wanted and didn't. This is going to be the same thing. Like all of Paul's fights. And while I want to be annoyed, it gets the other fighters money. People like money. It's not professional boxing. It's entertainment. Hardly, but he realized people will pay to see other(shitty) people try to knock his annoying ass out and has profited well off of it.

    IMO it's very different, Roy Jones was a legitimate boxer who did professional boxing the right way. Competed in the weight divisions, ranked up, and fought for championships. Tyson and Jones are brothers in a very rare fraternity. The Pauls are douches. I HOPE Tyson gets paid and puts an end to Jake Paul's boxing fantasy.

    Unless this is staged, I would be shocked if Mike doesn’t hospitalize Jake Paul.

    Agreed. It's either staged or Paul may die.

    That said, its almost certainly staged.
