‘Iron’ Mike Tyson, on the other hand, made his comeback against Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition fight in November 2020. Tyson has not fought since, but has continued training in search of his next opponent.

Logan Paul is fresh off a fight against Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather earlier this year in another exhibition match. Meanwhile, his brother Jake also fought back in August, against former UFC champion Tyron ‘The Chosen One’ Woodley.

Both the Paul brothers are unaligned and are looking for their next fights. Hence, given Tyson’s interest, they now have yet another name in a pool of opponents to choose from.
