Also, many feel if this fight happens, there’ll be a round of trash talks. But should Logan Paul really trash talk an elite like ‘Iron’ Mike?

Recently, Paulie Malignaggi opened up on the same and gave an honest take. He said, “Mike is not one of those guys you can play with, though. Like I think Mike is real cool. I’ve met Mike, he’s super cool. But I still think he’s an old-school character in that he demands his respect.”

“Both as a man and now there’s always, something about older men, all the older when they’re old school people and the older guys, they have a, they carry a certain amount of esteem where you respect me because I’m older not just because I’m a man because I’m older.”

In his iconic boxing stint, Mike Tyson never really trash-talked well. ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’ was a great fighter who answered his opponents inside the squared circle.

On the other hand, Logan Paul is a true trash talker who went all out against Floyd Mayweather prior to their exhibition outing. However, as there’s a vast gap between Paul and Tyson’s age, the YouTuber turned boxer might not verbally attack the boxing great. But should he share the ring with him and trade blows with him?

However, ‘The Maverick’ is hungry to establish his name in the stacked boxing world. And for that, he knows he’ll have to battle the biggest boxing names. Regardless of the nature of the bout (professional or exhibition), a fight with Mike Tyson would help Logan Paul expand his fan base extensively.

That said, the YouTuber shouldn’t give a second thought about this and he should go on to fight ‘Iron’ Mike without caring about the outcome.
