While talking on the FLAGRANT podcast, Paul described why Mike Tyson was not ready to fight with him. He stated, “I think he thinks that he would knock me out. And I think that is maybe the reason why he doesn’t wanna do the fight. I think he wants to avoid maybe knocking me out.”

He was further asked, “Do you think you can knock him out?”

Paul replied, “I think there’s a very, very high chance of that. He’s not the same fighter that he once was, and he knows that.”

‘Iron Mike’ was the most dreaded person in the entire world when he was in his prime. He had knocked out champions and monsters to the ground. Although the legend is retired from boxing and has grown old, Jake Paul knocking him out still seems like a holy grail. Only time will tell if the fight materializes or not.
