He tweeted out a picture of Paul and Tyson and highlighted that he confirmed this matchup through direct ‘sources’.

In a recent interview, Logan Paul and Jake Paul spoke about a possible fight with Mike Tyson. ‘The Maverick’  his brother, “Mike Tyson’s too old, no? I beat up an old man? “.

Jake Paul then joked -“But you kind of already beat an old man, Floyd Mayweather“.

Logan Paul was then admitted that he could take Tyson’s punches and that he could also hurt him in a fight.

Bro what are you talking about? He’s too old dude! I have the reflexes of a cat, I’m a young quick feline brother,” Paul added.
